Visit any nearby farmer’s market during this time of year and you’ll no doubt be greeted by a tsumani of color and texture. Just observing the many varieties of seasonal and organic produce so beautifully displayed at my neighborhood farmer’s market (Fairmount Market & Nursery at 230 Old Turnpike Road at the crossroads of Routes 517 and 512 in Califon, NJ) is enough to make the mouth water and make you want to run home, light the fire and dig in. What is it about the fall season that makes us think of nesting, of slowing down a bit? Take a moment to visit your farmer’s market or get in the car and head out to discover one. They’ll deliver a Rustic Chic feast for the eyes as well as the palette.
