Another Saturday, another market day. It was overcast going into sprinkles, and the only sun we had all day came in the form of this lovely sunflower, which SciFi man bought from Green Acres Herb Farm booth. We had one bumblebee who just loved this flower and kept returning to it throughout the morning.
Even though the weather was dreary, we had a good time snacking on some locally made cookies and talking with the market shoppers who braved the weather. Thanks to those of you who chose today to leave with a new bag or magnet set! It was nice to see some familiar faces in the crowd. I think getting to know the “regulars” is one of my favorite parts of selling at the RiverFront market. It was also good to see that our lettuce guy had returned. We missed him for the last two weeks.
Tomorrow is the second Fancy Schmancy Flea Market of the summer! It’s from 10am – 3pm at the Franciscan Recreation Complex in West Peoria. I definitely recommend you stop by to say hello to me and to check out the rest of the great local artists that will be there.
