Market Days

Thursday is market day in our busy little town during the summer months. I thought it would be a good occasion to soak in some of the summer cheer and take a few snaps of the event for my journal. It was warm and busy. I stopped at a few of my favourite kiosks and browsed by the various vegetable stands and jewellery tables; there were bright and colourful children's clothing and toys; books, music, a fortune-teller and some very enticing aromas as I passed by the food stalls. My favourite fragrance came from the bundles of lavender for sale. It was difficult to not want to nibble the various cheeses and food samples! Here are a few pictures from Thursday and there is also a quick slide-show on the side. I wanted to include this section under "Summer Markets and Flower Stands" but will give it its own posting here.

Hi Michelle, just discovered your blog thanks to your mom's post on the CF. I'll be back to take a longer look at your piece of paradise.

Do you happen to know the name of the artist who makes those gorgeous wood utensils?

Michelle said...

Thank you Cindy. I believe the wood utensils come from Africa - no name attached to them. Sorry! Nice to meet you here! Michelle
