Yesterday was a great day at the Farmers' Market. The weather was marvelous, the produce and plants were beautiful and the overall vibe was up and positive. The warmer months at the market are so much fun it hardly feels like work. And as we are getting to know more and more of the vendors it is taking on a whole new feeling of community.
I spent my time selling my jewelry, snacking on delicious hydroponic microgreens (above) and local NY state cheese curds and visiting with friends and fellow vendors who are back for the Spring season. My new table cloths worked like a dream and gave my set-up a much lighter feel. Setting up for a Farmers' Market is a little different than for a show or festival. The set-up needs to be quick and easy and it is a bit less formal. I made a sage green burlap skirt to run the perimeter of each table that attaches with Velcro and then I threw a natural linen-like fabric on top - a very quick and easy procedure and the jewelry looks great against it.
