the other thing i was looking for at the farmers' market, and what i bought instead

i was looking for the yellow cherry tomatoes in the bottom picture, which go for 3.50 a container. but, like i said below, i got there at noon and they were sold out.

another vendor had those peach tomatoes in the photo up top. i think people passed them by because they thought they were sickly-looking peaches (compared to the other ones at the market)... not a yellow tomato with a blush and a good flavor.

they didn't work in the recipe the same way that the cherry tomatoes would have, with their different structure, but the flavor made me remember what tomatoes can taste like. those six tomatoes cost $2.
