  Holland Big Red Harbor Light

Holland  Farmers Market veggies and fruit

Above: Sweet cherries, black raspberries, tight blueberries, crisp cucumbers, exotic lettuces, crimson radishes, various corns, sweet stevia, hot jalapenos, exotic peppers, red and purple rhubarb, and dozens of other fruits and vegetables round out the inventory. This is one of the biggest farm direct to consumer markets I have ever been to outside of California.

We pass on the extraordinary purple box containing ten pounds of blueberries for twenty-two dollars. Instead we buy one dollar tomatoes, a quart of blueberries for three dollars, a blueberry donut for seventy five cents, a Mexican style breakfast burrito with egg, potato and thick crunchy bacon for three dollars, radishes for one dollar per bunch, enormous sugar snap peas at three dollars a pound, three big cucumbers for a dollar, and a purple bell pepper for fifty cents.

We’ll combine our canned beans in butter for dinner with raw radishes and bell pepper. The blueberries and raspberries are the best I’ve ever had. Many of the hand written signs on each stall state the fruit was picked yesterday afternoon, just twenty hours ago. The flavors are deep, rich and powerful, not just sweet.

Above: Holland Michigans Harbor Light AKA "Big Red" can be seen in the distance through the inlet just as you go into the "sea".
