Catching up

I haven't posted a schedule this month because it's been so rainy. I'm hoping to get out to the Temescal market next Sunday though.

Here are some photos I took about three weeks ago.

They always have live music, and this time it was a a sort of jazz/soul group. They were pretty good. The guy on the keyboard did all the singing until this little cutie stepped right up and demanded the mic. She did an impromptu performance that stole the show, making up lyrics, which went something like "I love to go to the farm..." Then the musicians would back her up with "Go to the farm, go to the farm" and so on. A born performer for sure!

The stands in the background are some of the yummy bakeries that show up regularly. The crafts are to the right of the musicians. There's all kinds of prepared food, including Thai, Indian and some fantastic Afghan breads. It's a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday morning, but I usually go home with a tummy ache!

This is the vegetarian burrito stand, with James, the market manager standing to the left. The Feel Good Bakery is behind the three people standing in front of Donna's. I'm addicted to their pumpkin muffins with chocolate chunks and their jalapena bread sticks with pumpkin seeds. The rosemary chocolate chip scones aren't bad either.

They do have farm produce, too, or course - lots of it and all organic. When fruit is in season, I snack on that, but this time of year I go for the big time major carbs to stay warm. Also, since I have to get up at 5:00 to get there in time to get a good space, I'm usually starving by the time the market opens, so the prepared food is what keeps me going.
