Happy Friday Everyone!
As many of you know we have been exploring different local Saturday Markets. Last Saturday we decided to visit the Bayview Farmers Market. The market was wonderful. It was not too small nor too big. The crowd of people flowed easily through the path ways from vender to vender.
As we made our way through the market. Our ears were delighted with the soft music of a local band. We also made sure to chat with several venders. One of the first we talked to was a women who handmade both meat and fruit pies. I love a good Meat Pie and my youngest is obsessed with Apple Pie. Being so her both was our first stop. We ended up picking out a Sausage and Vegetable Pie as well as an Apple Pie. Later that night we had the Sausage and Vegetable Pie for dinner and the Apple Pie for desert. While you might think that is a lot of pie to have in one day. It was in fact mouth watering delicious. The two pies ended up being our find at the Bayview Saturday Market.
After our exciting pie find we continued to explore the market. Another both that caught my attention rather quickly. Was a both run by a man who makes his own granola. I love granola. I think it is perfect to take as a snack into the mountains, mix it in with your yogurt at lunch, or even a delicious way to cure a unhealthy midnight craving. So when I saw the opportunity to expand my granola love to include one of his I was very excited. There were three different flavors in total. One was a cranberry another toasted coconut and the last was blueberry. I tried each one and thought they were all amazingly delicious. However the one I needed up taking home with me was the Blueberry Granola. It tasted crisp and fresh. I was also in love with the cinnamon flavor he added too it. When I commented on how I thought that addition to the mix was yummy. He told me he doesn't even put that mush in, but it makes such a difference.
One of the lasts booth we stopped at was a jewelry both. The women who had the jewelry had some wonderful pieces. We were particularly drawn to a metal plated bracelet. The metal plate had all sorts of interesting designs on it. Leather was used as the band. While we were trying the bracelet on, she let us know that the leather was hand branded. That made her beautiful piece of jewelry that more intriguing and beautiful.
The market in total was wonderful. We felt like it was small enough for us to convers with the venders on a more personal basis, but also large enough to occupy us for an hour or so. I do recommend that if you find yourself anywhere near the Bayview Market that you stop in and see all of the hidden gems it has to offer. Even if your no where near this market in particular. I still encourage you to go out and visit one. It is also both kind and beneficial for a community when people support small local business.
