Farmer's Market Finds

We debated even going to the farmer's market this morning since we definitely do not need any produce. We decided to go anyway since we'd never been to the Saturday morning market and were curious about what might be there. Our mid-week market is produce only, but the Saturday market is also home made goods such as food items, preserves and plants. I'm so glad we went. We were able to get our first local peaches (no picture - we ate them already). We also bought some pastries from one of the booths (again, no pictures - we already ate them). I'm most excited about the only other thing we bought at the market. These:

We purchased two blueberry shrubs from a blueberry farmer :o) I was planning to get some anyway, and I am so glad I was able to get them from a farmer instead of from a big box store. One of the plants even has berries on it. We'll try these out in containers and I'll have the first update on Thursday. Yay for blueberries :o)

After we left the market, we walked around a little in the downtown and river front areas. Here is a picture of the boys playing on a caboose that is on display near the train tracks.
