Farmer's Market

Farmer's Market

Saturday! Oh, what a georgeous fall day! Yep, fall has come to NW Arkansas. The weather is cool and the leaves are starting to turn. The next couple of weeks are a good time to drive through the Ozarks.

Saturday morning's I start the day by going to the farmer's market with Trixie. Trixie is my oldest golden retreiver. This is her time. She loves to greet people and dogs. She is especially loved by the children. It's their chance to pet a dog that's willing to take their pulling and tugging. This is also a good time to socialize with friends. Grab a cup of coffee and a pastry. In the background there is music. Several musicians play for money, promote their music and try to sell their CD's.

At this time of the year the market features pumkins, gourds, cool weather vegtables, fall flowers and the last of the summer vegtables. In a few more weeks they will be closing it down until spring. I will miss it!
