For many summers, I taught photography for the Town of Cary. We get to go on at least 2 field trips and the favorite by far is the Farmer’s Market. Our objective is to study color theory; the farmers’ booths are great examples of the use of color to make things pop-out at you. I love wandering through the fruit and vegetables, they make everything look enticing! I also enjoy the commercial building where they house the sugary stuff. You don’t see bottled soda many places anymore and the students are enthralled with the new choices – no Coke or Pepsi. And the buckets of ice are much more enticing than a drink machine.
Most of the farmer’s market takes place under the roof of the big open buildings with work space that flows out into the parking lot behind each booth. A lot of the farmers have beach umbrellas to give them a bit of protection. The light coming through them is beautiful.
