My monthly job is to chronicle what's in season in the Market with my pen and camera.
Obsessions can grip us all, as this photo shows – a keen amateur grower who is hooked on growing squash. He's even decorated his barn roof with the beauties.
For this month only, imagine a Neil Young soundtrack (with volume cranked up) alongside the words of your market report.
Here on the Market, every month brings its share of seasonal delights. But this August offers the most elusive sight of all – the lads in their summer outfits.
The first chunk of July is the best time on the Market, stuffed with colour and British produce.
This month, two main stories grab the headlines: the start of stone fruit, and the repercussions of our exceptional spring.
"There's still some pomp and ceremony around English grass … It's one of last vestiges of seasonal English produce."
It's never dull on the Market, but this month was certainly the first time I saw a male model on Buyer's Walk, posing in shorts for a fashion shoot.
There's a fight over spring – when does it start? The Met Office pushes for the first of this month; others opt for the equinox, three weeks later.
The Market is buzzing, although memories remain fresh of the tragic helicopter crash last month.
The collision was just by the Flower Market, on the far side of Nine Elms Road.
