Here is our little farmers market stand with our farmers market leader talking on the phone with our local radio station. They wanted to know what my cows were doing and I said, "chewing their cud". I wonder if that went on air!
This year we added potatoes to our booth. We have Red, White and Blue potatoes. Patriotic spuds. I planted a whole lot of tators, but we ended up sharing with the gophers. I hope they pay.....big time.
So we officially had 'meat and potatoes' kind of booth. Someone suggested I grow horseradish next year to stay with the theme. I'm thinkin on it.
Today I had some lovely french lavender to sell as well. It was a real hit with the customers and the bees.
I am enjoying myself this year and find that I learn a lot from all of the wonderful visitors to the market. Every one has been super sweet and upbeat. Today I made a few trades. I traded a sirloin steak for a butterfly bush and some ground beef for a cheese and vegi calazone and some Portuguese sweet bread. In the past we have also traded for goat cheese. I love anything made from goats; milk, cheese, or meat.
If you live around these parts you should check out the Garberville Market on Fridays between 11 and 3. There are some new vendors this year as well as live music. Hope to see you there. Mention this post and I'll give you a flower!
