Saskatoon Sightings in Chicago

More farmers’ markets photos from Chicago to come soon, but in the meantime here’s just one, which for this Bostonian begged the question: What the hell is a saskatoon?

Well, scientist that I am of course I research all things to which I don’t know the answer – albeit in this case rather perfunctorily – so if you didn’t know, either, here’s a run-down of this tasty berry that even has its own website.  It is such a pleasure to discover the beauty of local agriculture and novel fruits and vegetables while traveling! Among other goodies, I bought a pint that we snacked upon during our meanderings around Chicago.

I mean, it can’t be donuts and truffles all the time, right?

My questions for you today, however, are: Did you know what a saskatoon was? Have you ever seen them? Eaten one? Like it? Hate it? Inquiring New England minds want to know…
