Really wonderful surprise colors in the woven baskets. I like that you used more details in the peppers and tomatoes, with less detail in the plums, asparagus and green leaf things in box on left. Also like that you have woven baskets, stands, boxes and barrels - keeps it interesting. I think your far right is too abstract though, you go from loose to a hint of items to totally unidentifiable space. I'd put a hint of fruit or vegetable something in there, even if we don't know for sure what it is.
I have a crit which is that the focal point is the very black sign that says Capsicums. If your goal is an advertising poster for the capsicum manufacturer, I'd say it works well. But for a painting, it may be better to make that sign also a lighter grey or very dull blue-purple shade, to bring us back to the peppers and have them pop out more.

AlisonR,
Thank you for the comments. I just made the signs a lighter grey and they do work better. They now look more like what they are...just small chalk boards. I added more shadow in the upper right corner and that is also better.

Ditto on the details for the peppers and tomatoes, to include changing of value to define roundness , shadow,reflection from one item to the next.
Good subject.
