A Purple Theme at the San Rafael Farmer's Market

Last weekend at the San Rafael Farmer's Market, one color stood out: purple! From grapes to carrots to cauliflower, I saw this regal color everywhere. Not that I'm complaining; it is one of my favorite hues! It was just so interesting to see it in places I didn't expect to. After the link are relevant recipes for the items photographed.
