Farmers Market


It was a cool morning as I sneaked out the front door and went to the local Farmer's Market. I was hoping to find some good deals by getting there early, and I did!

I found the most beautiful huge heads of red tipped butter lettuce, all organic. Along with the lettuce I found some gorgeous carrots, a gallon of local raw honey, a rosemary plant, a basil plant, and 1 quart of huckleberries! If you read my huckleberry picking excursion during last year's wedding anniversary, you will know why I bought them this year.

The morning was fresh and clean and cool and it was nice to visit with some friends who were at the market as well. I had to call my mom and let her know what I found and how nice it was to go to the "Markt" as we did in Germany. There was music, and many hand crafted items as well.

I'm off now to prepare for tonight's meal.

oh, that picture is WONDERFUL :) I too enjoyed Markt Day when we lived in Germany :) And there used to be a traveling vegetable vendor that came down my Oma's street too - he's call out on a megaphone thing, "Karrrr-toffel! 10 Pfund, 4 Mark!" I can hear it now!

How pretty it all looks and it sounds delicious! You asked me about the embroidered buttons on my embroidery blog....thank you for stopping by... and no they are not hard to make. You can find the button forms in wal-mart...just follow directions on the back. If you don't embroider, you can use any kind of pretty print fabric. Blessings,Kathleen
