Saturday 7/30/16

Nice Market day-sunny, cooler, less humid. We had a group of Iraqi and British kids from SIT. Roger Kahle and co, played Celtic music. 
Right now is high berry, fruit, and vegetable season. Apples and corn come later. Meghan rode her cool Amsterdam Cargo bike.

 Check out the bike. It has battery assist-allows Meghan to ride quite a distance, with a giant carrying capacity in front. These units predominate in the Netherlands.

 Here's the front view of the bike. Price on this thing is about $2500.00. I know mountain bike riders who will pay that much, and not be able to carry a small horse like this bike can.

 Bread Girl from Orchard Hill Breadworks. Ger yer bread.

 Fantasy Wear has all kinds of kids' fancy clothes.

Saturday Market 7/23/16

This was a blazing hot day-still drew a crowd. We had a great band. Also had some dude-bros walking around with a white dog. They arrived in an actual hippie-peace bus. Took me back many years...I can just hear Jerry Garcia singing "Sugar Magnolia"  Doot De Doot-Sunshine and Daydreams...

 These guys played old down home country songs. Banjo player killed it-and dig the hair! 

 Many people choose the market to take family portraits.

 Check out Ingrid with the sleeping little baby-so cute.

 John Miller grows all kinds of cactus. Must be difficult to sneak on his property at night. He just needs to find the screaming pin cushion, and call the sheriff.

 Serene faced little girl with the sophisticated sunglasses-on-head look.

 Another of John Miller's scary plants. Stephen King could do something with this, I'm sure.

Saturday 7.16.16

Brilliant Sunny Day-Huge Crowd-One Man Band. This is High Summer here in the North Country Brattleboro Farmers Market. Chloe the Cricket served as photo essayist, snapping everything in the place.

People like to shop. Food tastes better outdoors.

He just stood there-while she posed. You go Girl!



Little Princess walks holding Dad's hand.

Girls on the Run-In the Sun. That's Chloe on the left.

Ingrid grins while toting a child.


If you belong to a CSA, now is the time to research recipes and methods for putting food by. Your truckload of root vegetables is ready.


 When flowers bloom in Vermont, it's  like they all bloom at the same time.

 Strawberries abound

Saturday market 7.9.16

"It was a Dark and Stormy Day"-well, not so stormy. How about "It was a Dark and Drizzly Day". Yeah, that's it. I love cool drizzly days-My sugar and caffeine delivery system keeps everyone perked up midst the gloom.
Lots of Bernie talk. Visitors see Vermont as "The Bernie Mountain State". I wonder if they think he speaks with a Vermont accent. Let's hear it-"Millionayez and Billionayez". Go Bernie!

Saturday 7.2.16

Great holiday Market. The weather was perfect. Probably the biggest Market of the season, so far. We had a really good 2 piece jazzy band playing Dave Brubeck/Vince Guaraldi type music. Met some old friends. 
I noticed quite a few dogs at the "No Dogs" Market. Here's a pro tip. If someone tries to roust you and your dog from a "no dogs" area, just say that Rover is a Service Dog, and you're good to go.

 Clarinet and Electric Guitar. Great Jazz
