Roll the dice- seems appropriate. After Christmas my sales at the market slow down dramatically until the produce starts coming in, but it was like Christmas this Saturday!
The sale that really stood out was with a couple who were on their way home from Florida to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. They stopped in Marietta for the night and went online to see what was in town, found the River City Farmer's Market site, linked to my blog, saw the salt pigs, came down to the market Saturday morning, bought three salt pigs and a honey jar! Later, I wondered how they happened on the market site. I thought they might have found it through the chamber of commerce but I didn't see anything there. But I did find a link to the market here. If you click on "shopping" the farmer's market is listed.
It was a beautiful day at the market. Some vendors were set up outside selling bedding plants- vegetables and flowers. My booth inside the building is right across from glass doors where I could see a horse and trap racing around the track opposite the building.
I was waiting to post this, thinking that Monday afternoon when the light is good I might take pictures of stuff I was working on Sunday. Instead, I've got a different picture:
Thanks everyone for the e-mails, texts, and phone calls and offers of wine!
