Rain, rain go away

But the market went on anyway. And the good news: although it rained before the market, during the market and after the market, the weather was kind enough not to rain during setup or teardown which was a great help to the market vendors. While most people held back during the heaviest rain, over the course of the rest of the afternoon a remarkable 200 or so people were enthusiastic enough to join us at the market, rain or no rain.

Today's focus is on prepared food. There is plenty of produce at the market and a good selection of crafters with locally made items but it is always fun to try some of the ready-to-eat foods. Our rainy-day market featured everything from coffee, to deserts to full meals. The photos below highlight some of the prepared-food vendors and their customers at today's market.
