Last Sunday Market of 2008

Despite an icy morning, we managed to get to the last Sunday market this morning. A lot of the regular vendors were missing and the crowd was sparse. There were lots of wreaths, garlands and trees available today. We talked to one of the people at Gardener's Gourmet who told us that the drive down to Baltimore from Westminster was very scary with all of the ice on the roads. They left at 3:00 a.m. to get to Baltimore by the 7:00 market opening. They had some interesting looking radishes, which were called watermelon radishes.
Here's what the watermelon radishes look like inside.
I am still completely fascinated with the Romanesque broccoli.
After the market, we went to Gertrude's at the Baltimore Museum of Art to celebrate six months of Sundays at the Market. At the gift shop, I saw this hand-knit scarf which reminded me of the broccoli!
Merry Christmas!

I had no idea it even went this late! At least there's the 33rd Street Market in Waverly. It amazes me that those guys stick around 52 Saturdays a year.

Happy Christmas, as they say in the UK. Or Happy FIRST Day of Christmas :)
