Flesherton Farmers' Market on Facebook. You'll see one of this vendor's cookies in the header photo, lower left corner. I'll also post a link in reverse if I can figure out how to do that!
This market and a few others we attend largely cover our required Christmas shopping. We rarely actually go to stores, though sometimes to small local ones, certainly not any of the big ones. So we've gone home with quite a few Christmas gifts covered - a far more reasonable way to shop than 'Black Friday'!!
Which reminds me, I saw a great idea on Linda's blog The View from Squirrel Ridge (her post of Nov. 28th) - give up 'Black Friday' for 'Green Friday', and get your kids outside, or 'optoutside', a program sponsored by the Virginia State Parks. The future of the world will be much more enhanced by doing that than by spending another day shopping, especially fighting crowds in order to go shopping!
This post and this photography was a bit different for me, but I think the photos turned out well. Just turned the ISO up high and didn't have to worry about flash, and the colour is more realistic too. I hope I captured the flavour of the market without flaunting anyone's picture on the internet, something I don't do much of on this blog.
Although our main reason for going is the baking, I admit, the Farmers' Market is also a great social outing, at any time of year. Today I think we met and chatted with at least 7 or 8 couples we know well, and we chatted for awhile with at least 8 vendors too. We ended up going out for coffee in the local coffee shop, Highland Grounds, with 4 of those friends. And we ended up visiting two more Christmas sales later in the day, getting more Christmas gifts, (but no more baking - you have to be there early to get that!). The most relaxing and sociable way to do your Christmas shopping that I know of!
