rainy day market

Today for Six Senses Saturday I’m going to take you on a little tour of the Red Wing Farmer’s Market at the depot. This is the weekend market. There’s another market that goes on Monday through Friday in front of our City Hall, and a winter market at Sargent’s Nursery that’s held during the cold months. We are so fortunate to have such a fantastic resource for fresh produce, flowers, jam, maple syrup, soap, baked goods and a variety of hand made items in our quaint little town all year long!

This morning I got up before Jeff and Gracie and left a little note on the table telling them I was going downtown to the Farmer’s Market. It looked like it might rain, so I brought my umbrella, just in case. Half way there it started to sprinkle, so up the umbrella went. I was happy to be on a little solo adventure so early in the day, and was excited to see what the offerings would be today.

When I got to the depot it was still just sprinkling. I started snapping pictures and realized that, because my camera had been in the air conditioned house just minutes before, my lens started to fog up. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Wah! So, there I stood, with my umbrella, farmer’s market bag, and camera trying to wipe off the lens and take a decent picture before it fogged up again.

Anyhoo, I’ve definitely had better picture days, but I hope you get the idea what a pretty, pretty place our market really is.
