The winter that barely was—until Jonas crashed the party—is turning out some surreal foodstuffs at the Yardley Farmers’ Market.

On a recent trip to the Yardley Farmers’ Market, which relocates to the Yardley Friends Meeting in the winter, the inventory was expectedly less than in the summer and fall but no less vibrant.
Gnarled celery root and oversized carrots looked like small creatures hibernating in their baskets. The locally foraged maitake and lion’s mane mushrooms were downright sculptural, while the saturated colors of the lemon and pink oysters were relief from the relentless gray and brown outside. Massive heads of kale and broccoli and intriguing watermelon radishes all seemed impossibly green.
