After a week of hot weather in the 90's and over 100 it was a GREAT cool Saturday for a Farmers' Market.
I feel lucky to be self-employed and sell our products at such a wonderful place. Surrounded by other self-employed folks selling their beautiful products and showing off their talents. You can find anything from hand sewn aprons, bird baths, wooden furniture, meat and of course FRESH and LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE! Mmmm!
Every Friday evening we pack up our car with all of our market products and gear. We wake up in the morning at 6am and leave by 6:45 to get to the market to set up by 8am. I am glad I am a morning person!
I love the atmosphere, fresh air (way better than a office setting!) and chatting with all my customers and being there for them when they have a question about a product or are looking for something to use for a skin condition. I also love when little kids have to stop and smell the soap. It is good to see that kids know what good and healthy soap is! The market is where my customers can find my full product line, new products, and request special orders. It feels great to be selling a product that is good for the people and environment. And even though I am "working" this is my vacation from watching 3, soon 4, little kiddos. I look forward to it every week. Hope to see you there!
