Market Day in Our Town

I love the Farmers' Market. We have a little town square and twice a week we have the fun of going to the park to buy fresh produce and flowers and the best kettle corn on the planet! Today after doing the final preparations for the Broker's Tour on the house we decorated last week ~ I was just drawn to the market. The sights, sounds, smells~it is a sensory treat and it is every bit of summer over here. I enjoy the shady walkways, the casualness of it, the music, the kiddies playing, neighbors and friends chatting, the buzz and the kettle corn popping. It is truly a feast for the eyes. This is a Happy Making place. It is great to see so many people buying healthy food...it is just a great time all the way around. We always get tomatoes and kettle corn and this week I got some corn on the cob. The farmer asked me, "Yellow, white or yellow and white.?" Had to try the yellow and white. It is so nice to eat locally grown things and really great to find organic things too. I hope you have a Farmer's Market where you live too~one of the little pleasure of day to day life around here. It always reminds me of Laura, Spencie and Rossie as we had some fun times here last summer and the summer before. We miss you guys!

If you really are what you eat...look what nectarines can make!
I'm gonna run out and get some! Isn't she a beauty?

Laura Lou Loves Nectarines!

I loved going to the market when I was out a few years ago! This market is probably one of the best (if not the best) I have ever been to! Oh and I have yet to find kettle corn that can even compare to the one made here!!!

The farmers market in Concord is one of my all time favorites and I am a total farmers market kind of gal. I am going to the market here on Friday and will have to take pictures for YOUR viewing pleasure. Italian open air markets are so different and fun!
