On Saturday mornings the local park is home to a farmer’s market that has a lot of good food and merchandise for sale. If the weather is bad, they have it in the school multi purpose room that is nearby. Today the weather was stormy, so they moved it indoors. Cassandra, Mimi and Christine decided to go check it out, pick up some goodies and visit their friends Wendy, Alya and Rebecca.
They stopped to say hi to Alya first. She has a booth set up to sell hot dogs and snacks to raise money for the school track team since she is a member. She said that business was a bit slow this morning, but hoped it would pick up as the day went on.
Cassandra told her she’d be back before they left to get a hot dog, they looked yummy!
Wendy’s grandparents own a farm nearby and she was working their produce stand.
The girls thought some fruit for lunch sounded like a good idea!
Rebecca was set up with a cart of baked goods. Some of you might remember that they lost their lease on the bakery and are still looking for someplace new to set up. They have been using Mimi’s oven at the “MiShed” to make all sorts of baked goods. She had so many pretty things, it was hard to decide what to get!
“Cookies? Muffin?? Donuts?” Mimi wondered out loud.
Finally the girls were done with their shopping. The bag looks a bit heavy, doesn’t it??
Finally they decided they’d take turns carrying it home!
Do you go to any farmer’s market’s near you? I haven’t been to any this year, and I know some of them are closed up due to the virus. I always look forward to fresh tomatoes! I may have to venture out this week and see what I can find. It’s about time for sweet corn season here too.
