Good Market

We had our best market this year, which on the surface might not seem like saying a lot because we've had so many rained-out days, but you take what you can get, right? For the first time in months, the forecast was in our favor, and for the first time in months, the predictions actually held out. There were some dark clouds, however, hovering on the horizon, as if to taunt us. Nothing comes easy with the farmer's market.

We were prepared, as well. We had plenty of falafels and fixings, and the flow of people was pretty steady, with an occasional lull and a smattering of rushes. We went through all of our veggies and bread, and ended up with a bag or two of falafels. It worked out well in the end. We had enough stuff to go to the wire, and we only turned away a few people. Plus, we didn't have a lot of leftovers that couldn't be frozen. I love when that happens.

It should be interesting to see how the next market goes. You really have to hit the ground running because the market seems to pop up every week.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Sayed Dhansay for the pic.
