Saturday was a fun day at the market. Two markets in fact. I got up early and heading out for the 10 minute drive to Sackville for their outdoor Farmers Market. The early spring vegetables are out and the food vendors are to-die-for. Lots of yummy ethnic foods, from Chinese, Polish, Indian and German delights.
I always stop at the German baking table ;)
And until my farm co-op program starts, here is a few veggies. And it didn't hurt that it was a gorgeous sunny day. There's not much better than strolling through a farmers market on a sunny Saturday morning.
And after I got home I headed to our Downtown to take in the first ever Amherst Artisans Market. I could hardly believe my eyes. There were people everywhere !! And that is not something you typically see in our downtown in the summer. I loved it. It looked alive and vibrant. Local artists, musicians and food vendors were all over the place. Some in the Park, some inside various stores and many more on the sidewalks.
I didn't get to see every vendor but the ones I visited had some beautiful products. The thing about a small town is you can hardly move 10 feet without seeing someone you know and stopping to chat. That's the best part of small town life. And where else can you walk into a shop and the owner says "the kettle is boiled if you want a cup of tea" and you sit and have a cup while you visit and shop?
Simply lovely day
