San Rafael Farmer's Market, which is in full winter swing. Christmas trees and cider were there, along with broccoli, kale, citrus, persimmons, carrots, brussels sprouts, potatoes, and many different kinds of squashes. The colors have changed from the summer; there are more oranges and greens and browns, and less reds. I hope you enjoy these photos that I took, along with the recipe suggestions.
