I didn't really need anything from the market, but we thought that since it was close to work, it might be kinda nice to take a morning stroll around the vendors and see what's up.
So SM drove me into town, dropped me off and while I went into work, he went and had some waffles, eggs and bacon at a local favorite restaurant of his. SM says the waffles were amazing with a shredded apple on top and real maple syrup. (We use the sugar free stuff here at the house. Gotta watch his sugar...) Me? Not into breakfast all that much so I just grabbed a yogurt out of the fridge in our lunchroom.
We got to the market about 9:30. Boy, were they busy!
There are 4 "sheds". One for plants and one for crafts. We rarely go into those sheds. That leaves 2 for food and of the two I like the more open air one best. (The other shed offers larger "Distributor" businesses. What I mean by that, is that these businesses get their produce from everywhere (Fla, Georgia etc...))
Lots of new local vendors, many displaying signage with their thoughts on farming. (LOL...What we Sale? Or Sell?)
All ages and ethnicity's.
Look at that pile of garlic.
All the beautiful colors!
And of course the flowers!
We didn't buy a thing. Didn't see anything tempting enough except some Asian Pears for $2 a pound. (I really need to consider planting a few Asian Pear trees. The local nursery says they do better up in the mountains than they do here in the Piedmont, but how do you know unless you try?)
I hope you enjoyed strolling the market with us!
