Hello again, AR people!
We had a great day at the Dallas Farmer’s Market.
We were shopping to prepare for the Memorial Day barbeque.
There were plenty of things to see, and the farmers market is a wonderful place to people watch.
They have four large buildings called sheds -- two for local produce and fresh flowers, one for fruits and vegetables that have been imported, and one that is indoor and air-conditioned for prepared foods and crafts.
There are a variety of busy vendors, curious shoppers-some eager, some in relaxed Saturday mode-- and laid-back musicians.
When you walk through the market, the vendors call out and offer you their wares.
Everybody has something to do or buy or see.
I also did a cooking demonstration in a tent in the middle of the market with another chef to show people how to use the produce they can buy at the market. We cooked salmon and a mélange of vegetables and herbs
for the nice people. Everybody is so happy!
I got to sing with the musicians in front of Shed 2.
One sang blues, the other sang country, and I sang Italian opera.
We made beautiful music together. (The musician on the right is Cookie Momster’s dad.)
There was even a long-horned cow among the flowers!
There are so many amazing things to see at that market.
Now we need to go and prepare for the barbeque.
Tomorrow will be a busy day.
‘Bye for now!
