I have only seen mainstream grocery stores carry one color of carrot; orange. Bugs Bunny only ever ate one color of carrot; orange. So growing up orange was the only color I knew a carrot to be.
I discovered purple carrots several years ago as the farmers markets became more prevalent in Richmond. The farmer’s markets & Ellwood Thompsons is the only place that I have seen carrots of other colors like yellow, white, orange & purple.
As I was making dinner last night, I cut into this purple carrot & remembered how inspired I was the moment I discovered there were other carrot colors! I love how the light inside contrasts with the deep purple outside.
What in nature inspires you to learn more?
