An excellent second market day

The weather handed the us another great day for the second market of the season although there was some doubt given the cloud and fog in the morning before the sun broke through just before market setup time. The market saw a steady stream of customers enjoying the day, the great offerings from the seventeen vendors, live music and meeting friends for a chat. For those who weren't able to make it this week, please check out the visual feast below, all taken at today's market.

It may be gravel to you but it's a market to us

The far end of the market site was uneven and had a fair number of rocks sticking up, thus limiting how much space we could use for the market. At the most recent market we had 20 vendors and had pretty well maxed out the available space. Yesterday evening, and a big thanks here to Rob Mason Excavating, we got rid of the worst of the rocks and had a load of gravel placed and smoothed thus extending the useable area.
