Saturday 9/24/16

Hey, Fall is here-Falling leaves, falling temperatures, falling Summer shorts-into the drawer till next year. Well, except for my shorts. I wear them till December, certainly through Market season. It's a tradition. I did notice all the farmers bundled up in grays and blues and dark greens. 
Tree peeper season is upon us. High color in Northern Vermont-slowly spreading South-maybe 2 weeks till it gets to us.

 Looks a bit lonely. Crowd picked up later.

 Chilly kid in Hoodie

 Cute Kid of the Week bucks the dark clothing trend-and with a donut.

 Gal with a great Hairdo-of-the-Week

 Here's the fallen leaves. Blown down in this week's rain-ready for jumping kids.

 Why Yes-We LOVE Kale!

 Pregnant Lady of the week

Dude wants to "regulate" marijuana. I don't understand. Everyone I know already "regulates" their own-In the backyard.

Plenty of green still on the trees, waiting to turn

Saturday 9/17/16

Meteorological Fall has descended. Cool, breezy, sunny. We had bees for the first time this season-they loved my lemon bars. Also they like to dive bomb the powdered sugar in the teacake basket, then fly around like tiny white ghosts. I guess the sugar gets bees high. We had a great band playing bluegrass, with a touch of bluesy jazzy thrown in. I loved it. These guys should be the Market House Band.

Roger Kahle and co. killed

 Friends like to meet at Market-and snap pix.


 Another Group of Gals Gather to Gab.

 Dad and Daughter. I have seen many at my years here. It's a bonding experience.

Saturday 9/10/16

So the weatherman said to expect rain and thunder storms-We got nothing but clouds, then clear skies. Do these guys get paid to get it wrong? 
Anyway, it was another great day, though no Chloe to help-me sad. Band sounded better than I have ever heard them-good whaling and shanty tunes. Seven more Markets left.

 Spike Dogtooth playing Barnacle Bill the Sailor-Great rendition.

 Now THAT'S a true Market  shopper-Carrots and flowers. But..Where's the coffee and cookie?

 This week's Cute Kid, waiting for a donut.

Ladies' auxillary, having a walking meeting.

Saturday 8.27.16

Weather still holding a Summer-like pattern-Sunny, 80s, breezy. We all believe that if we simply ignore the coming cold season, then it won't happen.  Great fiddle, banjo, guitar band-Shingle on the Roof-See video below.
Thanks to Chloe for her camera work. Love you, Sweetie.

 Cute donut kid

 Everyone is happy at Market-even while incognito.

 Something, something, something Lending Library-Must be some kind of  eye test.

 Pregnant Lady of the Week. Great dress!

 Rigani's pizza joint-Corinne and Tristan. See the portable oven at the back  of the booth. Before it heats up enough to bake pizzas, they serve pancakes.

Second half of August-you know what that means. Cold is on the way. I guess visitors are getting in their Vermont summer fix while they can. Everything is now in season, except apples. Flowers are outstanding right now. Starting to see some cool hats.

 Chloe snapped some nice flowers

 Here's a hat at Dim Sum

 And another checking out Pesto Chango

Saturday 8/13/16

Another hot day at Market. Not a record, though. That occurred on July 4, 1911. Temp hit 105. I think Market goers have gotten used to the heat-they come out in droves, and still drink hot coffee. 
We had the outstanding Mary Cay Brass and co. to entertain us with their music.

 Cute Mary Jane wearing her Mary Janes.

 Buy a hanging plant while you can still hang it outside.
