For the past couple years I have been going to the Rockwall Farmers’ Market nearly every Saturday morning during the spring and summer months with my little black pug, Mollie Sue. We both enjoy it so much as we meet new and old two and four-legged friends. Mollie Sue is well-behaved and she has quite a following. There was a little girl named Elaine who would always see us coming and as we crossed the street she would call out… “Here comes the pug lady!”
I would buy vegetables, bread, jam, and whatever caught my attention at the time. The vendors are all so friendly and I can always count on Crazy Rick, the organic guy, as in “No Chemikills”, to have something interesting that I have never seen before… like rat-tailed radishes. It looks like a green bean but tastes like a radish and grows on a vine rather than under ground.
Amazing but true!
I made a book about the Rockwall Farmers’ Market on Blurb.com
After going to the link, click on “Preview Book” and then maximize on your screen for best viewing. To see the entire book on line, just go to:
So our most recent outing was to the market and Donna and Vickie joined me for a fun morning out. Vickie was smart. She bought so much stuff that the guy took it to her car for her! Now that’s service!
I was not sure exactly when the market started this year and then I got a surprise invitation through the mail. The surprise came when I opened it up to find two of my photos from the market used on the front as well as the inside of the note card. The images had been photoshopped to look like a painting and yes, credit was given to the photographer! A special thank you goes to Sandi and Michael Whitley from the Rockwall Soap Company for their talent in putting this together. Be sure to visit their website: http://www.rockwallsoap.com/Home.html
So let me share their work with you and then we will see some more photos from the market.
