I hopped in my car and drove the short distance to find this!
It wasn't very crowded. I found a tent that was offering a wine tasting from a local vineyard. Is it ever too early to drink some wine? They had several different wines, and I got to taste them all for the price of a dollar. It was fun. The wine was delicious, and I got a card for two free tastings from Notaviva Vineyards! I actually bought a bottle of their Viognier. It was light and fruity and crisp.
After the wine, I was drawn to all the fresh produce at the market. The strawberries were fresh picked. Some still had a little straw on them, and the sweet, strawberry-filled air was irresistible. I bought some strawberries and some honey from a local apiary.
Don't you want to just pop one in your mouth? Yes, they were that ripe and that good. I ate a pint of them this afternoon for lunch, and they were wonderful!
I loved all the colors of the fresh vegetables too. I don't know why, but these beautiful red and white onions just said "take our pictures"!! So I did.
I wanted to buy a bunch, but I didn't know what I would do with more than one onion! They were beautiful. They also had fresh beets and squash and greens. I LOVE the farmer's market. It always makes me yearn for retirement and my own plot of land to grow my own vegetables and flowers. Some day, my friends -- some day in the next few years. I can't wait.
Can you tell what these are?
And to make things even better, they had entertainment in the form of this young man who played the banjo extremely well and sang! What a delight!
I love my farmer's market. I like the fact that I know where some of my food is coming from. I wish I could grow my own, but until then, this is the next best thing.
I hope you all have a wonderful and sweet relaxing weekend, my friends!
