Quality Friday: Last Time This Year.

Last Saturday our family was double, make that triple, booked. We had a lot of different plans and things going on but the one thing that was the most important was going to to the Farmers Market with my parents. It was our last time this year. It's getting colder and colder every week and less and less vendors are showing up with their fresh crops, veggies and produce.
We had a great time, like always. Of course, no trip to the market is complete without a trip to the brats and hot dog stand. Here's everyone (minus me) enjoying their morning snack. Again, I held out for French Meadow bakery with M. Sadly by the time we got to the bakery (what can I say we were a poky crew this week) there was only one donut left. In case you might be confused, M got it.
We also got the kids their pumpkins there this year. With the widest selection around, you really get to see everything from white and yellow to orange, big and small. They also had some decorating demonstrations going on so the kids were able to paint small pumpkins to take home too.T, M, part of H with our cousins Brittany and Michael.

J carrying T's pumpkin to the car.

Everybody including Uncle Richard and Jeane but minus my dad and H.

I love the farmers market, mostly because I know how happy my mom and dad are when they go there. But I think also because of the atmosphere. I feel like we are so relaxed there. The kids can run up and taste apples and veggies and salsas and olives and cheeses and enjoy the smells and tastes and sights we see. People come from all over, every race, nationality, age, gender, personality is there. It's probably the most diverse thing we can be a part of right now. And I like that.

The farmers market runs all year so there are plenty of more opportunities to go, I just don't know how many we'll take advantage of living in the cold state of Minnesota but I am looking forward to next summer when we can do it all again.

Happy Quality Friday!

Loved the captured the experience at the Farmer's Market so well!

Ours closed last week and it is so so sad to walk by that formerly blocked off street and see no vendor tents, no colorfully clad people, no succulent veggies, fruits and bumpy gourds. Also, no divine scent of the kettle corn being freshly popped. It's going to be a long wait until it re-opens.
