Vail Farmers Market

Today we visited the Vail Farmers Market, which happens each Sunday during the Summer. It's become quite a big affair -- the parking structure filled up and cars lined the frontage road. The crowd was really big, bigger than we've ever seen on a Vail Summer Sunday, and we had a great day. I have to get the camera thing down... my battery ran out early. But it's not just about documenting it... it's about enjoying it in the moment, which I truly did. Eddie danced to the live music, found a little wiggly cat folk toy he liked (which we bought of course... suckers...only $3 though) and he gobbled up a vanilla with vanilla butter cream frosting cupcake (suckers again). We found some great Colorado peaches and sweet corn from Clark's Farm and zucchino bread from the Avon Bakery and Deli. Grandma and Grandpa also bought peaches (you really can't pass up CO peaches in August - they are so good) and brownie ends, the crusts the baker cuts off to keep all the brownies uniform. So, dinner tonight was fresh, easy and delicious! I also chatted with a local artist, Mark Lemon, and considered buying one of his smaller pieces, but didn't today. I did pick up his card and checked out his web site - I like his work. It reminds me of the California Impressionists we saw in Laguna Beach last year. Hmmmmm. We'll have to think about it...


This image tells you how Eddie really feels about having his picture taken! Have a great night!
