Farmer's Market Saturday

When I was little I used to go with my great aunts' to the farmer's market for fresh produce. It was very large, or so it seemed to me at the time, and we always came away with delicious fruits and vegetables.  Then we would spend the afternoon shelling peas on the front porch.  We haven't had a real farmer's market around here in many years.  Recently they have been trying to revive one downtown near the river.  It's not too large yet but hopefully it will grow.
We ate whole wheat pizza baked in a stone oven for lunch.

The Urban    Gardening Coalition  is a group of gardeners who raise small gardens in their back yards.  They found that even with a small garden they grew more than they needed so created the coalition to share their produce with others and make a little money.

Look at their gorgeous table, I'm a sucker for red and white checks.
