Farmer's Markets

Summer is the time for fun in the sun. It's also time for gardener's to reap what they sow. Here in WY we have a very small growing season, so the Farmer's Markets are just starting to open. We sold our Bare Body Soaps at our first Farmer's Market last Tuesday at the Downtown Casper Community Farmer's Market in front of the Nicolaysen Museum. There was an amazing young man playing the guitar and singing, which made the evening even more enjoyable than usual. Tomorrow we will be packing our soaps, table, etc. in the car again to drive to Casper so we can participate in the Farmer's Market. This is our second year in Casper and it is quite an enjoyable experience. There are activities for the kids each week, music, good food, a chance to meet new friends and visit with old friends, and of course a chance to buy crafts made by the local artisans. There isn't a lot of produce for sale yet, but as the season progresses, I look forward to purchasing some home-grown veggies. If you are in the Casper area, please stop by tomorrow night from 5-7:30 p.m. to visit us. If you live elsewhere, stop by a farmer's market in your area. Each market is unique, but they all involve great people, good for you fresh produce, local crafts, and fun in the sun!
