only, saturday i carried a camera instead.
my friend sue and i decided the weather was way too perfect saturday to not do a walkabout with cameras at the st paul farmers market. luckily, we were both half an hour late to our meeting spot, breakfast at golden's deli across the street from the market. we giggled about that, giggled some more over our yummy veggie breakfast burritos and cappuccinos, then began our quest for shots of produce and flowers.
we were not let down.
marc and i used to hit the minneapolis farmers market quite frequently when we lived in town, but i've always loved the st paul one more. truth be told, i kinda love st paul more. something about the history, the old buildings, the quiet little streets, the beautiful city parks ... love st paul. and the market has much more of a community feel to it.
see this guy?
what do you call a cow who's had her calf?
ha ha ha
so i had to tell HIM a cow joke in return.
ha. get it? it's all in the delivery.
but he loved it, and immediately told it to the next lady in line.
and see this little sweetie? i don't think she trusted me or sue and our cameras that loved her so much.
no matter where her dad went in the family's booth, she kept her eyes trained on us. and MAN was she a cutie!
from the cute little old lady that one vendor greeted by name, to the couples holding hands, to the little kids who were sitting at the picnic table that is just for them and coloring pictures, to the local firemen ...
everyone loves the market. and sue and i had the best time.
and all the veggies looked delicious, and all the flowers were stunning. and there were so many different types that i couldn't pick a favorite. (see album here)
so gorgeous, in fact, that i will go back this weekend with my canvas bags. not the camera. and i will make my house beautiful for $20 or less.
i love the farmers market.
