Saturday Market Grows

Yesterday's Saturday Market was the best so far in the number of vendors (about 12) and without question the best in terms of weather.  For the first time this summer, it was held outside and there was even enough sun to make it a little uncomfortable for those without tents or floppy hats.  You live, you learn.  (A message to me, certainly, who had neither while discussing library fund donations, leaving me looking squinty-eyed all the time and probably not very friendly.)

The buyers were largely cottagers, it seemed to me, because I was surveying people about whether anyone in their family had a library card, which required me to first ask if he/she was a resident/cottager or short-term/day visitor.  Lots of kids there on summer week-long trips.  Whoever they were, they are welcome; and whoever they are, they bought up all the produce from the Cooperative Garden people long before 1:00 pm.  So, if you've an interest in fresh, organic produce, come early: opens at 10.  Next Market Day: July 28th.
