Farmer's Market Fun

The Farmer's Market is so much fun!

There's music...

A clown that makes the most amazing balloon animals I've ever seen...

My good friends selling raffle tickets for the beautiful quilt behind them to raise money for the Sitka Cancer Survivor's Society...

More good friends selling jams and bread and other wonderful things...

Yummy food....

 And my crazy neighboring vendor, Hope, selling beach asparagus, herbal teas, and edible seaweed.

I didn't sell a lot of produce today, just some Lemon Sorrel, Radishes and Huckleberry Syrup. I go to the Farmer's Market mostly for educate folks about the U-Pick Garden and to encourage them to come out and see what it's all about. If I would harvest everything that was ready and take it to the Farmer's Market then there wouldn't be anything left for the pickers, so I make a gift basket of all the things that are available for picking and have it on my table for display. I have everyone sign up for a drawing and the lucky winner gets the basket at the end of the day. And the lucky winner today was....

My good friend, Bonnie!!! Congratulations, Bonnie!
