Every Saturday from July 4th until mid October we have the farmer's market in town. People come and set up tables and sell whatever they have grown or hand made. Or in our friends Rex and Evelyn's case, whatever the bees have done! They are bee keepers and sell delish honey. The samples were really good too. They bring a hive along so people can see the wonder that is honey making and get a better understanding of this miracle of nature.
Many of the wares for sale are homemade soaps, baskets out of gourds, pies, breads and even the cutest little decorated flip flops ever!
The Amish just pull up the buggy and unload... The kids are so cute. Can you see the little girl in her bonnet?
Let's not forget the veggies of course...hmmm, that reminds me...fried green tomatoes would be yummy tonight and all I have to do is pick them from my own garden!
Parking isn't a problem but I wouldn't suggest doing it behind these dudes.
Besides all the food and items for sale, the real reason for going to the farmer's market is to see friends and neighbors like this character. I work with her and she had half her kiddos with her. Yep, she has 6 all total! What a woman!
With all the tables of goodies, veggies, crafts and the like, how in the heck did I escape with only these two items?? I told the vendor to pick out a good ripe melon for me. He thumped it and said it was calling my name...He didn't know my name! I hope it wasn't saying "sucker"..it better be a good one!
