Hey, the warm weather’s hanging in. It feels good, except for the part where the local drought continues.

Even though the weather has stayed warm for the calendar, leaves have already started to turn, and even fall. Our traveling visitors love the scene, with the colors, the kids kicking leaves, the smells of a variety of cooking foods.

For me it means the Market year is drawing to a close. I have definite mixed feelings on the subject. While I anticipate the end of Market season-by this time I’m ready to sleep in on a Saturday morning and I have many chores to catch up-Yet I know I will miss the experience of being at Market, with all my old and new friends and neighbors.

Well, the good news is that next year’s Market will be welcome and new again. 5 more Markets. Rara Avis.

Must protect eggrolls.

Sometimes people dare me to post their pictures-Here you go.

Sorry about last week-both cameras died.

This Market day we had cool and sunny. The breeze had a pronounced bite to it-perfect weather for hot coffee. We had special visitors-a group of S.I.T. students from Serbia brightened our day. They seemed very taken by the Market , weather and fun atmosphere, and they proceeded to sample all the prepared food on hand, and that’s quite a lot.

The music was lively-kind of mountain bluegrass/reggae-went together fine.

I think we will get our first frost of Fall this week-gotta bring in the house plants and some wood to light the first fire in the wood stove. I can smell the wood smoke already-mmmm……. Rara Avis.

Early morning sky.

Sunlight saturates Market trees.

Sorry to be late this week-been battling a low water well-hauling water from the spring across town.

Anyway, we had a very busy day-Labor Day weekend-nice weather, happy crowds of visitors, good entertainment.

I can’t believe it’s Fall already (I count the beginning of September as the beginning of Fall). I can see trees turning here and there, and the weather now tends to be cooler with shorter intervals of high temperatures-won’t be long now. See you next week. Rara Avis.

Just the right melon.

Early on in Market history, we weren't sure about the sandbox. I guess it's worked out.

Two friends visiting the Market.

Market is a great meeting place.

Tuk's last Market. She has been a wonderful addition to our little family, as well as a great neighbor and lunch source to me. We miss her already and wish her and Brian well in there new life in NYC. Bye, Tuk...
