Inspiration | Roadside Farm Stands
I’m a city-dweller these days, but I haven’t always been one. Growing up, I lived across the street from a farm that had a roadside stand. In the summertime and long into the fall, our neighbors would sell produce from their farm to local patrons and folks who were just driving by. There’d be tomatoes and eggs and every kind of green thing you can imagine. I love the farmers’ markets we have in the city, but there’s something about stumbling upon a roadside stand filled to brimming with fresh veggies that makes me feel as though summer has really arrived. We’ll be taking a trip up to Maine in a few weeks, and I can’t wait to score some farm stand produce on our drive. These shots are Polaroids taken by Walker Evans in the early 1970s. Kind of incredible, don’t you think?
