Farmer’s Market Carrots

You think that you know about carrots. Orange, ordinary, good for roasting, cartoon rabbits like them. I thought I knew about carrots, too. Portable, nutritious, packed with nutrients – they’re pretty good for snacking.

I picked up the sweet babies shown below at the downtown farmer’s market. That’s when I really learned about carrots. These precious things are instantly recognizable as way better than the usual. The outsides are bright, fresh, and clean, like they were just pulled from the garden. Shiny and alive, they make you realize how good a carrot can be. And the taste is sweeter, crisper, and less sharp than a store-brought carrot. If you think you don’t like carrots, these might change your mind.
