another check on my list
i keep a running mental list of things i want of this community where i have chosen to live almost all my adult life. one of these has been a farmer's market (i spent my last years in toronto in my early 20's shopping at the kensington market - a 5 minute bike ride from where i lived). yesterday's first ever farmer's market in the centre of town was everything i hoped it would be. a sunny warm day. wonderful music. colours and smells and smiles. good sales (i sold lots of my scarflettes). starting july 11th (when the produce here comes on full-force) it will be held every saturday until october. a few of the members of our craft collective will take turns each week looking after the booth and selling each other's work.
