Monster crowd today. Chloe spotted several of her pals from NEYT-the New England Youth Theater. It's a great theater school that trains budding actors from the local community. They put on plays year round. All the fruits, vegetables, flowers are here. Berries are gigantic. Be sure to visit while you can.

Look at that! Dappled sunshine! A very busy day. We had a contingent of about 150 S.I.T. students, a combination of Mexicans and Iraqis. (S.I.T.=School for International Training). Very friendly animated kids, practicing handling US money, and working on their English. Many of them left with an ability to say "Whoopie Pie". A great musical duo played. Slow Pony did Gypsy sounding music. See video clip below.


 S.I.T. kids

 Being outside in Vermont makes people hungry.

 They eat and talk.

 More S.I.T.ers

 Meagan hates to have her picture taken. Don't know why-She's as cute as a bug's ear.

 Slow Pony-Squeezebox and Banjo

 S.I.T. again

Bright and Sunny-then Pouring Rain-then Bright and Sunny again. The crowd of market goers is magic. Big crowd showed up in the morning. When the rains came, the crowd disappeared. 

Then when the rain stopped the crowd magically re-appeared. I think that, in this region of short Summer, people don't want to waste an hour of sunlight. 
No puddle kids. Even with the heavy rain puddles didn't form.


 Nice crowd.

 Looking down the foodie line.

 After the rain.

 Hairdo of the week.

 Or, maybe this one.

 Patty, the Gluten free french Pastry chef smiling her great smile.

Everyone loves the Market.

Rain Friday. Rain Sunday. Market day-no rain. Perfect coffee and whoopie pie weather. Puddles again abounded, with young splashers in attendance. An amazingly large crowd strolled the grounds. Fahy's Fields played Irish music.
I have never believed in the after-life, but if I did, then Market would be Heaven. So when I die, "they" could rub my face in it by sending me here, to perpetually hang out with smiling happy people, and watch little kids splash in the puddles.

Jane, the most stylish vendor at Market. Hi Jane!

Here's a puddle kid.

And another.

Tatted up dude of the week.

Cute whiskers girl.

Terrie often falls asleep while standing. Stayed this way for awhile.

Amelia's first market visit this year.
