Suquamish Farmer's Market HARVEST FAIR

Oh the best laid plans.....I am so many months behind in my blogging, catching up seems impossible.  To that extent, I'll just jump right in. 

Today is the last day of the Suquamish Farmer's Market, which I've been vending at almost every Wednesday since mid-July.  Though small in size, the people involved and the goods available are marvelous.   Hoping to see you there today.
