Tueday in Monterey

Tuesday afternoon is Farmer's Market time in Monterey. The day was cold and breezy but so sunny you could weep just a little with the joyfulness of it. Frankie goes on Tuesday for fresh veggies and flowers.

The colors and sounds and smells are amazing. Lots of friendly people. One vendor gave us a huge bag of fresh carrot tops for Binnie. A little something for everyone. Including grilled garlic bread for Bret. It was a fun mid-week getaway for all of us.
Ok peeps, off to the dentist for a teeth cleaning! Hope you have a fresh fun day! xo

Wonderful colors, great inspiration, and lots of fun! I think Binnie will be thrilled with the carrot tops.

Could it be that I was in California and Mexico just a few short weeks ago? It seems like forever as we were plunged back into the deep freeze on returning home. I love the images of the honey.....and the fresh veggies just longing for a good recipe.

Loved the moonlight video!

I love the farmer's market. Some Fridays when I get up and need to go to the store I dream that there is a fresh farmer's market in my area and I can go for fresh foods. Costco is about as fresh as it gets around here. I grew up going to the farmer's market with my mom at least 2 times a month. Good memories anyway. Nice pictures of your market. I'm jealous. That would be fun.

Don't you just love the colors at a farmers market? . . . & the really fresh, straight-from-the-fields, produce. . . I do miss that about California.

I love the colors of a farmer's market, but alas must enjoy them while visiting kids in CA. But at least here in AZ we are enjoying beautiful spring weather and that helps quite a bit.

I am envious of that market! Especially the lovely flowering branches. I could do with a few of those.
