A trip to the Newark Farmer's market

I always like Saturday or Sunday market. Today's trip was to the Newark Farmer's market. I had so much fun tasting the cherries and nectarines and what not. Let's see what they have...
 Peanuts and all kinds of zucchini or summer squashes. I saw the eight ball zucchini, green zucchini, yellow zucchini and light pale green zucchini. They look so fresh and tasty.
 They do sell bitter gourd shoots. Yes, the leaves are very bitter. But it is probably good for the health.
This gigantic onions look so fresh. It was so huge. I wonder how they grow this giant vegetable.
 A huge garlic. It was so huge that I was afraid to eat them.
 There are so many varieties of kale and swiss chard. They cost about $1 to $2 a bunch.
 I like to see the shape of these eight ball zucchini. They look cute.
 Super huge radishes.
 Another picture of the bitter gourd shoots.
Pennywort...yes, I found Pennywort at the market. This vegetable is super food for the health. It can reduce the blood sugar level. Another name for this vegetable are Gotu Kola, Centella asiatica, Pegaga, or Rau Ma. I like to juice them with an apple. Super delicious and good for health.
