Market Preserves

Market Preserves --

Snapped this at the Waterloo Farmer’s Market, which people keep insisting on calling the St. Jacob’s Market. Which always confuses the hell out of me since I’ve been going there since 1983.

This photo was taken of the preserves at a stall run by an older Mennonite gentleman. It was one of the stalls in the Mennonite section, which seems to have been entirely supplanted from the old market across the highway and ghettoized into one little area in a market that now feels more like a carnival than a farmer’s market. But I digress. Or is that ranting?

[Going through some of the photos I took in 2009 which didn’t get uploaded due to time, travel or illness. ]

What do you think?
