Scenes from the farmer's market


I finally made it to the farmer's market last week.  I was hoping to buy some honey from the "honey man" for my bread recipe but he had one small bottle left!  I did buy it but wished I had stopped by a few weeks ago.

I was able to purchase real maple syrup from a young Mennonite couple, which almost made up for the lack of honey.

However, even if my original plan did not work out as I would have liked... the morning was glorious!

The picture above was taken on my walk to the farmer's market.  The beautiful window box flowers were on each side of the door into a cute shop!


The picture (above) is of the tiny bouquet of flowers that spoke to my heart, my farmer's market treat... well, except for the dollar I spent on a whoopie pie from the older Mennonite woman.  :)

The remaining pictures were snapped as I walked along the many vendors.  I think autumn at the farmer's market is the most beautiful!

What a lovely place to walk and purchase fresh things. Similar to our Curb Market here. The stalls have been family owned for generations. Every Saturday we have a truck market in the parking lot of one of the county buildings where people can sell their crops and specialties. Love it.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful Fall pictures. The flower box is gorgeous. I need to buy us some honey. I was reading the other day all the health issues that a teaspoon of honey helps.
Love,
Marie
