It’s Field Trip Friday-To The Farmers Market here on my blog! And I am so excited to share this field trip that I went on while I was in Oregon. I have shared many others with you here, and here. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did!!
First of all, do you have a farmers market in your town? Do you go often? I have a tiny one here, and I love it. But, I SO wish I had one like this close to me. I would be there just to taste the samples and envelope all of the sights, sounds, and smells. It is truly an experience in and of it self.
Okay, let’s go to the Field Trip Friday-Farmers Market…
I walked miles and miles to get there…Actually less than 1/2 a mile!! How awesome is that?? It was a beautiful sunny day in Oregon. Everyone was in shorts with their sunglasses on. You could feel the excitement and hope of Summer.
Isn’t this just gorgeous?? Stacks and stacks of asparagus waiting to be roasted with olive oil and salt!!
The Farmers Market is held in the town square. The local rock band is playing, the splash pad is on for the kids, and the smells of baked goods, tacos, and gyros fill the air.
Several floral growers were there making bouquet after bouquet. They were being bought just as fast as the workers could make them.
I just couldn’t get over the variety and all of the floral colors.
These baskets are so amazing, aren’t they? Would they be even more amazing if I told you they were hand made by one woman?? Yes, indeed they were. She was making even more while I watched. She was meticulous and talented at her craft.
I mentioned yesterday how much I like jewelry. So, I could resist looking at this handmade jewelry either.
The homemade treats were displayed up and down the street. Samples for everything from hummus to sweet breads to waffle sandwiches. I am glad I didn’t have breakfast. I was full before my walk back home..
Isn’t this the perfect Farmers Market picture? Beautiful ripe strawberries in colorful blue baskets says, “Farmers Market”, don’t you think?
The goods I brought home to my daughter’s: Scratch Lemon shortbread cookies, Razzleberry Pie (made from scratch by “the Pie Guy”), butter lettuce, zucchini, asparagus, radishes, spinach, and a huge bouquet of peonies.
I have to tell you about this lovely peony bouquet. As I walked up to the Farmers Market, these eye catching peonies drew me in. I knew we needed some. At $5 a bouquet, how could I resist. That was for the lighter pink peonies.
I asked them to keep them there while I walked around. When I was done with my shopping I came back to pick up my bouquet. The couple handed me all of these flowers because 2 of the peonies had crumbled apart while I was gone. So, the gave me a WHOLE other bouquet, too!! I was touched and it added to the whole ambiance of the Farmers Market.
I was excited to share my Friday Field Trip-To The Farmers Market with you today! It was a wonderful time having you here. Come back again soon.
Make it a Field Trip Friday
