In the space of one summer and the tiny bit of fall we’ve seen, the Tuesday afternoon Farmers Market has gone from a quiet affair known only to a few to a pretty big deal, with people waiting on the sidelines for the selling to begin and as far as I can tell, twice as many vendors as there were in the early days.
Part of that may have to do with the growing season, but I think part of it is also the market becoming more well-known as people catch on to the good deals and incredibly fresh produce and baked goods. It’s a sociable way to buy things, particularly if you work or live near the downtown area.
Today I took a few pictures at the market. Last time I focused on the brightly colored produce; this time I focused on the people, though of course I couldn’t help taking a picture or two of some bright red, orange and yellow peppers.
Here’s the gallery. Enjoy! I’m not sure how many of these will be left this year.
