Every week our friends at Real Time Farms feature the top photos of farms, food artisans, and farmers markets shared on their site.

Onions may not be the item that make you eagerly anticipate market day, but when they can be coaxed into something as delicious as Merrill's Red Onion Jam, they just might get added to your regular shopping list. These beauties from Shamba Farms are basking in the sunshine at the West End Farmers' Market in Alexandria, Virginia. Whether red or white, in a jam or a tart, it's clear that onions deserve their day in the sun. Click here to see more, and then add a photo of your own - you might be featured here next week!

My CSA has had toddler sized onions lately. I made a big batch of crock pot caramelized onions to freeze for the remainder of the year. Organic onions are showing up more often around here but nothing can replace the big and sweet onions I've been getting lately!
