I was not impressed with the new varieties of melons that were quite bland and flavorless. The colors were beautiful, but that was about it. I found a great collection of cucumbers at one stall, which by the way, I have growing in our school garden, including the beautiful lemon cucumbers. I am also proud to say, that we have most of those herbs in our small garden, from the lemon grass, to the sage, different varieties of basil and thyme, the different mints, lemon balm, bergamot, garlic chives, chives. I also enjoyed the assortment of grapes at one store, especially the jupiters. The local cheeses were also generally good, the tofu place was outrageous, and I am really not into raw grass with tofu. I love tofu, just not pureed into a nasty green. I probably expected to see more flowers, being an avid gardener myself...but aside from the annuals like cosmos and glads, the flowers also were not a show stealer.
