Farmer's Market



I will surely miss the many Farmer's Markets in California. You can find one pretty much any day of the week, in several communities, within a 20 minute drive of our house. Today I stopped by the one in Concord on the Todos Santos Plaza. I listened to the lady play the harp, watched an artist paint portraits, smelled the fresh flowers and brought home some beautiful artichokes and kettle corn. The colors of the tents, flowers and the sky were all so vivid, I really should have painted straight out of the tube. The way I see it, the scenary on a Tuesday afternoon doesn't get much better than that!

Farmer's markets are a door to community. In the last few moves we have made, one of the first things we do is to find out time and location of the markets.

Great sketch,

Looks like you were really drinking in the day. Hope you're able to search out and find as much beauty after you move.
