To Market, To Market

This weekend I had a chance to get down to the local bayside farmer's market. This year they have added a street dedicated to the arts and I found a spinner/knitter selling her wares. She had some lovely things but not much business. I am sorry to say that, the beach is not a good setting for wool no matter how soft and lovely it is.

The booths that were getting the most customers were the ones with the beachy themed things and the local vineyards-no surprise there. It's the only time you can walk around sipping alcohol on the streets and everyone seems to take advantage of it.

On the farmer's side of the street there was plenty of beautiful produce.

It made me sad to see it all when I had nothing to show from my pitiful garden this year.

What really broke my heart were the pumpkins. They were everywhere and I couldn't even get a single vine to live more than a few weeks. I guess am going to have to buy a pumpkin to carve this year but it sure won't be the same.


  1. That looks like a fantastic little market!
