The Market Square Farmers Market kicked off the 2011 season today in downtown Knoxville. It is one of the reasons I love doing life in this city. It's a feast for the eyes, ears and the mouth. I also get to run into friends/acquaintances and meet people I never would have otherwise.
Here are some shots I took this morning as I sampled my way through the market :)
I stopped by a table with funny-looking eggs and found out they were goose eggs. Supposedly, one goose egg equals four chicken eggs, according to the seller dude. (It looks more like a 1:3 ratio to me, but hey, what do I know).
My friend Sara and I were smart and arrived right when the market opened at 9 a.m. Parking was still good and we got first dibs on a lot of stuff.
Within an hour of our arrival, it got super busy.
I got some yummy bread from this lady and her hubby.
Musicians were everywhere. He was one of my favorites.
I got to people-watch...
I also got to know a new vendor. Charity teaches hoop dance classes/workshops. (hoopbug.com). Who knows? This may be part of my summer adventures....
When Sara and I got done shopping we headed over to the Cruze Farm people.
Coincidentally, today is my half birthday. So we decided to celebrate with a sausage egg biscuit.
We came back for some ice cream. (What a lovely hand model Sara is.) That's blackberry to the left and honey lavender to the right.
We were two full, happy campers :)
