Farmers markets here and there

You know I love a farmers market so it was so fun for me to go to the Ballard market with Amy and Rachel when I was in Seattle. I will get to imagine them there and ask about certain venders. It was fabulous! Nice blend of prepared foods, produce, meats, craft items, too.

Aren't these succulents beautiful?

Who wouldn't want to eat bread shaped like a croc?

or a bear?

I'll have some!

Tried this one, interesting

I'm more of a sweet cupcake kind of gal

Made me want to make cupcakes to sell at the Farmers Market here. Yum, yum.
So many craft items. I put these bowls on my Christmas wish list along with some of this soap. I wanted the bowl maker knit the bowls which are then felted in hot water. So many colors. I'd like a whole table full.
Don't these just make you happy?

I can smell them now

I'll have one in each flavor and wrapper

I wanna take a bath

Gotta love a cake of soap! Funny, eh?
There was a fun bluegrass band playing, lots of kids dancing, people enjoying shopping and sampling. I was so happy that our market would be in full swing when I got home.

fresh greens

a sure sign of spring to me

My haul this week at the market

Mini doughnut machine. I had a half dozen cinnamon sugar ones. Wish we had one here.

Next- my farmers market haul this week.
Not as exciting but I absolutely love my market.
Homemade tamales for breakfast!

These Dutch Iris were calling my name!
