Autumn is my favorite time of year. Weather is cooling, leaves are turning brilliant colors, and Halloween (my daughter’s birthday!) all make it an enjoyable season for me. The downside? It marks the end of the Fayetteville, Arkansas Farmers’ Market held outdoors on the square in downtown Fayetteville. Thought I would take a break from writing and post some pictures.
Looking forward to next year’s market!
That looks like a colorful market and big enough to spend some browsing time. We have a big one about an hour away in Portland that now goes all year (though it’s smaller in the winter). I love buying local and fresh…getting easier all the time.
Nice, D. Wallace. Buying local is best, I think, and I enjoy supporting local farmers. Our market also attracts a variety of artists and crafts-persons although I didn’t get any pics other than the musicians. But there are always painters, sculptors, potters, and spoon makers sprinkled around the square. Many colorful sights and sounds. They go all year here, also, but the indoor venue away from the square is small and I rarely go.
Looks like a great place to shop or just browse. 🙂
I’ve been known to do both! I often get something to eat and drink, sit on the brick wall or benches, and enjoy the musicians. 🙂 Thank you for your comment.
I love farmers’ markets, the buzz and fresh local produce. Oh and the wonderful aromas of baked bread and pulled pork and in the winter hot soups……. now I’m hungry.
Oh, Jean! Now you’ve made me hungry! Would you believe I just put two fresh loaves of bread in the oven. Will be out and on the cooling rack in 25 minutes. Made them this morning. Tea?
No sugar and just a drop of milk please, Jack 😉 I can just imagine a slice of that warm bread with butter melting into it. I’m off to make some pancakes, I don’t have enough flour for bread.
Pancakes! Yum. Good with, tea, right? 🙂
Wonderful photos, Jack! I greatly look forward to my town’s Saturday farmers market.
Thank you, Dave. Great places to browse, buy, and visit. Right up there with libraries and books stores.
Great pictures, Jack, and what a lovely town you live in!
Thank you, Ali. Not as beautiful as Ireland perhaps and certainly not as much history but it is home and I’m happy. 🙂 Thank you for your post.
Theres a lot to be said for that feeling of being home.
Nothing nicer than a local market Jack especially if it’s local produce.
Agree, David. Thank you.
