At the Farmers Market

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.

  1. I love the farmers market and try to get there every week. As you said, in the beginning, there was hardly anyone there and it has grown into this amazing thing. I love how it is in the afternoon and in the downtown area. Traffic has become an issue though. :(

  2. Hrm. We always walk, so I don’t know about the traffic thing.

    People are really nice there. The other Farmers Market I’ve attended (not within 100 miles of here, note) was kind of predatory; people would show up early, lurk at the table and pounce on what they wanted most as soon as the bell rang to start the selling. It was a leetle scary, but fun.

    Worthington’s seems more relaxed.
