Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

Threes:  In the summer of 2010, I went on a road trip to Ottawa, Thousand Islands and, Kingston.  While I was in Ottawa, we explored the ByWard Market.  It’s also known as Marché By in French and it is one of Canada’s oldest and largest public farmer’s markets.  

We were here during the Labour Day weekend and there were a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables available.  Among the many baskets of blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, and peaches, I found a type of fruit that I had never encountered before.  It was a small berry nestled within dried leaves that curled up around itself.  I had never seen anything like it!  Although I found the price to be kind of hefty for the amount that was sold, I bought a basket and tried it anyway.  Now I know these to be gooseberries.  They’re a dusty yellow colour and the berry itself reminds me of small cherry tomatoes.  I loved how fresh they were.  Fond memories… placed into a trio of photos for this week’s photo challenge. : )
