Well, the time has come!
My local Farmer's Market has now been open for 3 weeks and our small historic
downtown is booming with shoppers every Saturday morning. This puts a serious
stress on, if I ever wanted to go hang at my favorite coffee shop (right at the entrance
of the market) on Saturday's (good thing I tend not to).
I'm not going to lie, I was waisting time scrolling through old pics of when I lived with my friend and watching her daughter grow, and next thing I knew an hour had past and I was still sitting in my pajama pants at 10AM. (Let me be clear, this is perfectly acceptable on a Saturday, it just isn't normal for me! So you go right ahead and keep sleeping in my friend! No "shame on yous" coming from me.)
A friend calls me up at the exact moment I'm feeling a little lazy from sitting for an hour slumped over a screen, and she tosses out a, "Want to meet me at the Farmers Market? I can be there in 10 minutes"
I'm in my p.j.s and my friend with two kids and pregnant on the verge of bursting is already up and going for the day with her kids ready to go and packed up in the car.
All I could do is tell the truth.
"Um...Yes...but its going to take me a littllllllllle longer than 10."
I tossed on the first clothes I saw, wrangled my hair into something that somewhat resembled a human head. And I'm pretty sure I only put make-up on one eye.
Before running out the door, I took a look at my counter and refrigerator to see what I needed....EMPTY? What the What? Who ate all my produce? How long have I been living without produce in my house? (Taco Bell you crafty little, distracting minx)
Needless to say I was sure glad she invited me because I needed some serous shopping.
This was seriously so fun. You always run into
someone tons of people you know while you're there. And you never know what sort of things you'll see being sold from week to week, or what kind of people will be walking around. I found some great stuff, but unfortunately it's still a little early in the season and I had to stop by a grocery store on the way home to find what I didn't snag at the market.
P.S. I can't end without telling you I snagged these shades at a thrift story for $1.
If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them,
then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall
yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
