Farmers' Market #11: Rain and Shine

It's week eleven already, not quite half-way through the market season.

I am still finding pork shanks and country ribs to sell; I need room in the freezers and they are the slowest movers - so, high discounts get them moving fast.

Arethusa has a full stand.

Here's something you've never seen before. Dan managed to make it clean to his mid-forties without ever holding a baby.

That didn't last for long.

The park quickly filled up after the sun came out. The waterfront was hosting the Brewfest, but there was no function adjacent to our farmers' market this week. Still, we had an influx of tourist trade wandering through and random teenagers eating up all the cheese samples.

It rained for over an hour (Dan thinks 2 hours solid), and the park cleared out in a hurry.

Regular customers still made the journey, but the tourists dissolved into the local restaurants and bars to get out of the drizzle.

Not much notable for entertainment this week, except for The Hula Girls - well, mostly girls.

And lastly, the most adorable dog of the day.  See you at market!
