See you next week!
Thank god the rain finally stopped! I felt as though I was beginning to mildew from all of the damp. The first two weeks in May reminded me of life in Wales, right down to the cool weather, glowing green and copious rains.
Because it was the first sunny day of the Downtown Market, it was PACKED, even at 8:00 a.m. There was a line for the beautiful strawberries, but after we did some calculations: n x p = NO, where n=number of pints of strawberries left and p=people in line, we decided not to wait. The other strawberries we saw were not nearly as pretty, so there wasn't a line.
We saw lots of lettuces, asparagus, some left-over apples from last year, but not a lot of other local produce, except some hot-house grown herbs. Lot of market packs of bedding plants and veggies, too.
As opposed as I am to people having dogs at the market (and I am talking to you, woman with the tiny black lab puppy on the leash, who could have been stepped on), I didn't object to the dog this gal was carrying.
We saw this little guy carrying a bag of kettle corn nearly as big as he was!
