Farmer’s Market & the Country Living Fair

Saturday was the best day of 2017 so far!

The first Saturday in June is the beginning of our little city’s fantastic farmer’s market and I made out like a bandit!

Kale, tomatoes, snap peas…

 

 

Every Saturday morning, my husband and I get there at 8:00am when they open and get bread from Bread Alone for our breakfast, then do our shopping for the week.

Oh, there’s usually coffee šŸ˜

This is a great way to support our community, reduce waste, be healthy and save money.

No waste year… not doing too bad. I could be better about bringing my own to go cup for coffee.

So after the most amazing morning, my husband had a couple hours of work (he’s a Tae Kwon Do master. Have I mentioned that? Swoon!! šŸ˜) and I got ready for the Country Living Fair !

It’s held in Rhinebeck, New York where we got married, so it’s even more special to us.

We’re HUGE vintage, antique, farm house junkies, so this fair is a big deal!

It was a perfect sunny day and it started with a wine slushie the moment we walked through the barn doors!

Tiny homes! šŸ’œšŸ’œ

We spent a few good hours there getting inspiration and of course making a few purchases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One purchase I was extremely excited about was from a little environmentally friendly company called The Old White House . They make beautifully scented laundry powder and fabric spray, amongst other perfect goods.

 

Not only is this stuff vegan, but it’s not going to harm our planet. We’re supporting our economy, Mother Earth, each other… I couldn’t have been more honored to meet such a wonderful woman, Theresa.

I’m a fan, and customer, for life!

After the fair, we walked around Rhinebeck, got dinner, had a couple vegan truffles at a little chocolate shop, then headed home.

What. A. Day. šŸ’š
