Farmer's Market Outing
Today was my outing with my friend to the city farmer's market. Opens from 6am to noon, though starting next week it'll be 8am to 2pm. They have so much excellent fresh produce as you can see.
Click the jump for more pictures :D
so I put together a coord( as seen on D_L) ... and then had to bundle up right on top of it because it was so cold. I wore leather gloves and a hat too, since the market is outdoors.
Dahlias! I always get one from this place. I'll post pics of my new girl later this week~ The owner is a man who grows only different varieties of dahlias, but they all look so different. It's absolutely wild.
It's an outdoor market, set up in a big empty parking lot by the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. You definitely have to get there before 10:30 to get some of the stuff that sells out quickly, like the Farmer's milk bread. But there are always donuts, and they are delicious.
delicious apples. I always get some from this orchard, but this was their last week. Noooo j 3j Normally I'm allergic to apples from grocery stores, because of how long they've been off the branch. But I can eat the orchard apples without a problem, and when I buy some I just have to finish them in the next 3 days.
Creepy pumpkin. Speaking of which, we bought a pumpkin for carving. Got to do that tonight.
More yummy veggies.
This jewelry table always has so many gorgeous rings and necklaces, with cameo and floral themes. Honestly they are perfect for lolita. One weekend (maybe next) I'll actually get a ring or something. Meanwhile I'll just keep drooling, haha.
Good thing I got these pics because this was the last farmer's market for a lot of the shops (some will go on until dec. But probably not the flower sellers :() But I think the people selling meat, jam, knitted items, and hot food will still be there. At least I hope so because I intend to go every week until it's over!
