Farmer's Market

Today we did #11 on my list of 101 fun things to do over the summer. First we went to an outdoor farmer's market, we met a woman who sold lavender soaps and satchels. She gave Pinky and Daisy a handful of lavender to put in their pockets, so they could smell the aroma all day.
Next we went to the North Market a huge indoor marketplace. We wandered around and looked at the different types of fruits and vegetables, we saw different types of breads and meats. We found a Italian bakery and drooled over the cannoli, but ended up buying some delightful cream horns. We taste tested salsas made from Peach, Mango and Raspberries. Pinky and Daisy tried a hot and spicy salsa that made them run for a water fountain. We bought the Raspberry Salsa and some red tortilla chips and got some huge strawberries on our way out to the outdoor eating area.

We sat outside and enjoyed our cream horns and then walked back downtown to catch a bus to go home.

A wonderful day. Very relaxing and peaceful. I love days like this.
