2013 Farmer's Markets

I am very behind in my blog posting.  It is July and I still haven't posted anything about the farmers' markets.
My excuse is, we are painting our house.  The outside.  I know - doesn't it all make sense now?  So far, we have power washed (and what a mess that is), put up moldings, knocked down the antenna pole, etc, etc.
And we haven't even opened up a can of primer yet, let alone paint. 
By the way, the paint colour is boxcar red.

The 100 Mile Farmer's Market moved from the Highway 97 location to the centre of town, taking over Third St  and the plaza of the Community Centre.  On Friday, from 8:30 am until 1:30 pm.  I think all of us felt trepidation at first.  Would people find us?  And, would the tourists make that turn and come into town.  As I write this, I can say - yes, they will!  Last Friday, at least half of our customers were from out of town.

May and June were rainy and often cold, but the town supported us. People came and chatted, and bought.  Jan giving shelter
