We were tickled by this note tacked up above the fresh apples at a Virginia farmers market last weekend: This is what apples really look like. We didn't try any, since we just went apple-picking (report coming soon!) but we bet they were juicy and delicious.

Farmers markets are great places for eaters and cooks to learn more about fresh fruits and vegetables, direct from the ground. Sometimes they look a little different than the waxed and airbrushed produce we expect in the grocery store, and farmers like this are doing a good job of reconnecting us with the realities of local food.
