Misty market

The drizzle at the market today did not dampen anyone's enthusiasm.  You can find pictures of the market here.  Lots of good food, enough plants for several large gardens, flowers, potions and lotions, locally made soaps and wine.  And many faithful customers and new ones too.

Reminder - no pets at the market

Just a quick reminder, our insurance regulations do not allow dogs or other pets at the market.  We love them, but where food is served and sold is not the place for our furry friends.
