Last Market of the season-Well, last outdoor Market. Indoor Market starts next week at the Rusting Green House downtown. That's the River Garden to most people.
The last Market was cold, rainy, windy, and very well attended. I guess folks want to get Jerry's cabbage flowers while they still can. Very good bluegrass duo played. We all joined in a group picture for the FB page. 


 Nice Alpaca hats to keep you warm this Winter

 Here's some more

Mother Nature decided to make an "in situ" sculpture of the Dim Sum booth.

Holy Cow! Rain falling in sheets, gale force winds, hail the size of golf balls-NOT! The weather forecast was once again wrong. We had a cool, overcast day at Market. Tons of leaves-More than I remember from years past. Must be climate change-Everything else gets blamed on it.

 Cute, big hatted kid.

 Look at these cool eggplants.

 Fall flowers abound.

 Marsupial Mom carries Joey in pouch.

 Little squash (squashes?)

 Steps lead to upper parking lot. It's a scenic Market, not just a bunch of carts in a parking lot.

 Varee smiles through the cold-Warmer in Thailand.

 Wells the roving philosopher and Amelia, resident reflexologist hang out by my stove.

What to choose..what to choose..

Beautiful day-lots of color-although early morning was very cold. Seems like the visiting tree peepers decided to stay awhile longer. I had trouble making coffee fast enough. A woman asked for "cawfee" and I guessed "Long Island", but she answered "The Bronx". Farmers are in full pumpkin, squash, apple mode. 2 more weeks of Market, then a long Winter's nap.

 Cute bundled up kid

 Here's fiery haired Imelda stocking matching pumpkins.

 Kathleen is serious about her coffee.

 Aforementioned pumpkins

 Sandbox is still killing it.

My old friend Smileyface and her lovely child. She always asks me how I'm doing, and I always say "Great!"

This looks like the best Fall color I have seen in a long time. Numerous Tree Peepers clogged the roads to gaze on the reds and yellows that seem to be more brilliant this season, and most of them came to Market. Everyone gets hungry outdoors in a cool Vermont. The Farmers market has an extensive food court section, kind of a United Nations of savory and sweet selections.

 Cleaning the tables before Market.

 Maisie has a great pooch shirt.

Kids are always in motion at Market, especially when piles of leaves are present.

Screw Disneyland, This is the Happiest Place on Earth.
