Harvest bounty

What an amazing array of food products that whets both my appetite and my curiosity. I’m wondering most about the items in the paper plates that look like flattened coffee filters, in the display across the front of the table, plus the plate of fuzzy-looking round things right above the string of chilies on the right, plus the two arrangements of crispy bits on a diagonal (righthand side) toward the butter in the center. Can anyone illuminate for this city boy, please?
