Tomato Tarts and Other Market Temptations

For the Labor Day weekend farmers market, I created tomato tarts with our garden tomatoes - a Labor of Love. Imagine this: wheat pastry crust filled with caramelized onions and creamy gruyere cheese, topped with carefully arranged sweet tomatoes and kalamata olives, and a twist of fresh ground pepper.
Large tarts and tiny tarts, they were all snapped up quickly.
It was a pretty morning--I took my camera along to check out the other market vendors' wares. This corn truck had a great sign.
My gardener friend Richard, with some of his gigantic dahlias.
Last Saturday bought a case of 12 pints of these berries with a raspberry pie in mind, but they disappeared before I could make my pie. Note to self: Next year I will have raspberries...
and plant grape vines...
and lots of sunflowers!
