The Farmer's Market
Most Saturdays, I can barely get set up and situated before business starts and I never do have time to take some pictures. But this last Saturday, that was not the case. It was freezing. Literally. I nearly died. Well, not really. But it was truly, painfully cold. It snowed from time to time. And aside from a few die hard fans, there was really no traffic. This left me some time to chat with the other ladies, drink about 32-48 oz. of hazelnut red-eyes, take some pics, and freeze to death.
|Oh the beauty. The beauty! It's good for the body, and the soul.|
|Radishes, beets, sweet peppers, daikon radishes, watermelon radishes...|
|Three types of kale, and collard greens...|
|two turnip varieties, rainbow chard back there...|
|more chard, mustard greens, three cabbage varietes, and (sigh) kohlrabi. Which may possibly be my favorite food of all time. Ever. Always. Always and forever. I heart you, kohlrabi, I really do.|
|It was snowing just then, but you can't really tell.|
|The other vendors...|
Normally, there is a full pavilion of vendors, but most people valued their lives and sanity on this particular week and stayed home...by the fire..with coffee....and a book....and perhaps knitting. And did I mention warmth? And health? And sanity? Ok. I did.
If you came out last week, thank you!! And we have extended the market, so I will be back for the first three Saturdays in November. (Hopefully, under less life-threatening weather conditions.) We still have plenty of produce, and even a few more things that are laughing frost in the face. So, Floydians, come out!!
