Spring is here, is it not?! Overnight, the leaves on the trees turned neon. My car, which used to be blue, is now yellow. I can wear flip-flops and my toes don't turn into icicles. And even as I sit here this morning, I'm hearing all the sounds of Spring. Like, literally, there's a damn bird perched outside my window and is relentlessly trying to get its point across to its fellow feathered friends. The yard man's here and I'm pretty sure he's trying to mow the bricks up the side of my house, it's that freaking loud. But that's okay. I don't mind, because I can look out the window, see nothing but green grass and blue sky and that just lifts my spirits.
Another thing I'm getting super excited about is Market Days on Broadway! It starts up May 15! I started selling PeyPey's Picante last year at Market Days and received quite a following. There is such a camaraderie with the other vendors, trading my goods for theirs, never exchanging a dime. I'll give you a jar of PeyPey's for that apple pie right there. Or, I'll give you two jars of PeyPey's for two baskets of blueberries. The cool of a Saturday morning, the friendliness of patrons, the deliciousness of freshly grown produce and freshly baked goods. These are the things that I love most about Market Days.
Kyle's Red Root Farm has some of the best tomatos around. And Kyle's t-shirts are really cool too! If you mosey up to Kyle's stand, expect to see him wearing a cowboy hat and playing some Allman Bros on his guitar. Buy some tomatos from him and he just may throw in a free onion.
