just pickin for tips

These two good ole boys, just pickin for tips, were the perfect start to a morning at the farmer's market.


It was one of those wonderful early June days. The sun was shining, the temps were in the low 80s, and there was a nice breeze to keep it from being too hot.

The outdoor pavilion downtown is the perfect spot.

I'm old enough to remember when a street called Cheapside ran through here.


Wow, I think everyone else in town had the same idea for their morning as I did. 


Hey, save some for me.



The vendors were ready with everything from fresh picked strawberries.


to locally made cheese.


Throw in some Georgia peaches


and some heirloom tomatoes (mama always said, the uglier the tomato, the better the taste)


and I am one happy girl.

Now, I don't know what you are having for breakfast this morning, but one of those peaches and some of those strawberries definitely have my name on them.

  7. Laura,
    Your farmers market is great. Yum with all the fresh stuff. I love the fresh fruits and veggies in the summer when they come from the farmers markets. Much better taste than store bought.
