Market Day

Last Sunday I set up my booth at the local farmers market...


I even posted my tables to Instagram. (They're very quick videos. Much better at giving you a look than a still image.)

Do you go to your local farmers market? What did you do last Sunday?

  1. Excellent! The short vids do give a perfect impression of how you set up your table & show nicely your wares.

    I can't recall what I did last Sunday, but I suspect it involved either going for a run around Lake Merced or along the Great Highway.

    I work with a friend on the occasional Saturday at her crepe stand at a local street market. It's fun & busy work. Folk are ga-ga for crepes!

    1. Oh, I bet. Food stalls do really well.

  2. A good variety of items at your table. We went to a school carnival last Saturday. Bought some essential oils and a book from the vendors there.

  3. Our little town has a seasonal farmer's market but I have only gone once. I honestly couldn't find anything I wanted to buy and felt bad with the sellers sitting there with hopeful smiles. As for last Sunday, I went to the YMCA for a swim and otherwise wrote, and wrote, and wrote. ~grin~ Best wishes!

  4. Hi Liz - you have a wonderful array of different items and colours. Good for you - some people love markets ... can't say they are my favourites ... but I do go occasionally. Last weekend I had a walk along the seafront with a friend, spent the day sorting things out here ... and had a film society meeting to select our films for next year - and I'd checked them out earlier in the day ... I was tired by the morning!! Cheers Hilary

  5. Your stall looks lovely. I hope you had a good day.

    We spend Sundays with my in-laws, I usually take some knitting and something to read since everyone ends up taking a nap after lunch. ;-)

    1. I take my knitting along, too, when I go to hang out someplace. Keeps the hands busy.

  6. You look like you have been busy! I need to consider doing a booth at our little Farmers Market that starts this May for the very first time! I craft too much and I need a way to get rid of this stuff.

  7. I did the farmer's market a few years ago, but they tended to shove new crafters to the side and out of the way, so it was near impossible to sell anything and became a waste of time.

    1. At mine there's no "out of the way" to put someone, so we don't have that issue. That's too bad. And a way to make sure the market doesn't get any new blood.

  10. There's nothing like this at my local farmers market. In fact, if anything, we have lost fiber crafters. There used to be someone selling alpaca wool products (hats, etc.) no more.

    1. I'm the only one doing fiber arts at my market. We've had some other crocheters, but they don't seem to stick.

  11. It is one of the things I want to do. Last Sunday was a great combination of family time and me time so I can't complain.
