He Really Is So Sweet To Me...

The Farmer's Market!
Look how excited Jer is to be there
to be getting his picture taken
so that he can be on my blog!
As you know, from past posts,
Big Bear Jer does some things,
that he may consider "Girlie",
but he goes along because-
He really is so sweet to me...
This is a local market that
started last year.
I didn't hear about it until the
end of last summer-

Too late...

So this summer-
We are on!
There are beautiful flowers and plants.
(Have you ever seen such a giant Dalia? )

There is also beef, pork, fish and poultry.
Oh, and fresh, made-to-order omelets!
Everything, of course, is locally grown.

Along with a few tables of hand-made items.

It was a busy and bustling crowd.
Such Fun!!!
Oh, did I mention the homemade jams?
I love Tart Cherry Anything!

I also picked up some flowers,
which I absolutely can Never resist-
So that I could dress up my girl...
It was a wonderful way to
spend an hour on a
Beautiful Summer Morning!

I'm taking a vote-
How many of you think Jer will be there
again next Saturday?

Oh, great farmers market! I love farmers markets, we get our meat there, our veggies, fresh flowers, crafts, lots of stuff! Your husband sounds sweet, mine is the same way, he will go to a lot of things with me that I know he really doesn't want to! XO!

My vote is "Yes" ... "Indeed!"

Your photos are so beautiful, Joyce. I especially love the pink flowers. We have many of these kinds of markets here where I live. They line the major route which runs from Baltimore to Ocean City, and all the tourists keep the markets hopping. I don't think we have any that offer omelets, however. That's so interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if you made this an every-Saturday adventure during the summer! Thanks for letting us have a glimpse into such loveliness.

Looks like fun! Is that the Texas Corners market or downtown? I think Jer will be wherever you want him to :)

Cornflake said...

Homemade jam, yum! Nothing beats homemade conserves, they taste so fresh and healthy!

Lovely markets and love your flowers! x

Rosie said...

Oh, they always "pretend" not to enjoy it, but next Saturday{mark my words} he'll be in the car before you...waiting
Hey did you buy the jam?...Is it crazy good???...tart cherry...what could be finer...sweet post!!!!

Amanda said...

That all looks so beautiful! Maybe you could sell the gorgeous aprons you make!

I can relate to the hippie/J. Crew theme. This bride is a total hippie, but she's also very classy in many ways. As for the hippie touches... Everybody will be barefoot, bride, groom, the whole party. Totally barefoot. The bridesmaids will be wearing flowy sashes tied in different ways in their hair. This is also a great way to add their accent color in. I'm also adding lots of different things in the bouquets. Like succulents. And possibly pheasant feathers in the boutonnieres.
