Marketing the farm

Friday, I had an appointment downtown, so I took the opportunity to visit one of my favourite places… you know it – I’ve posted about it before…. The Hamilton Farmer’s Market.

I arrived just in time to see the Knight’s jousting around the famous Birks’ Clock.

    Your farmer’s market looks delightful – even without a lot of fall items! Such a treat to have a farmer’s market with indoor vendors. The cactus in the hedgehog is so neat.
