Every other Saturday, during the winter months (Christmas through March) and every Saturday at all other times, our town offers a local Farmers’ Market. It takes place in the parking lot of our coffee shop and spills over into other vacant spaces behind the coffee shop! A few months ago I talked about the Hand Painted Benches that were being replaced by generic, black, mundane benches. I found out about this when I went looking for the Love Bench! Well this week we have a new dilemma; we can no longer bring our dogs to the Saturday Market! This has caused a big brouhaha in our small town! The Saturday Market is THE place to visit with your neighbors, along with the Post Office ( we don’t get mail delivered to our homes) So on Saturdays the folks gather up their cloth bags and their dogs and away they go to the Saturday Market. No longer. We must leave our pets at home!

I ask you, does Fido here look like a problem to you? What is your opinion? Dogs or no dogs at the Market? Our small town ways are fading into the dust!

PS I took these photos at O-Up-Early, when the stalls were being set up, before the crowds got there!

I hope you enjoyed our walk in town today! Get out there and see what’s going on in your neighborhood and post it for the IPhriday Photo Challenge!  All photos were done with my IPhone!

    I enjoyed the walk very much – and Fido is fine with me – but I do not like dogs around tables of food. Like in one of our local magazines a restaurant owner was holding a dog above her food table – omg. yuck.
    cool post and the patio is so inviting.

    Your town seems so idyllic! Our farmer’s markets shut down over the winter. I believe they’re starting to open back up though. As someone who gets a bit fussy about animals around my food, I think I can sympathize with those who wanted all ya’ll to leave your Fido’s at home. I hope it doesn’t stop the townsfolk from enjoying one another’s company though. It is a nice thing about small towns.
