This Little Piggy Went to Market!

Howdy, y'all!  I don't really say 'howdy'...I just stopped by to say hello, hope you're having a great 'pre-fall' weekend.  You, know,  I'm really getting anxious for the cooler weather to 'fall' upon us.  Fortunately, we haven't had quite the torrid temps here in the Lone Star state as we did last summer, and, even recently, we were graced with some!
So, today we decided to visit the local Farmer's Market...I wanted to get some good tomatoes, and, possibly find some peaches.  Oh...nothing against the grocery store produce, but, sometimes the fruit is so costly, and, not the best.  Once we got there, I spied interesting props for good photos, but, had to use my cell phone...not thinking about taking my camera along, lol!

They keep a lot of their plants and foliage outside on racks.  See the pepper plants on the bottom shelf?  And, I noticed 'Dusty Miller' plants on the rack too-a hardy plant that is evergreen, or, should I say, 'ever-silver'?  They almost glow in the dark!

What in the world is this?  We decided it must be a burro!

The Farmer's Market had everything...fruits, veggies, legumes of all kinds-a variety of mushrooms, honey, even bee pollen!

I did find my peaches and tomatoes, and we picked up potatoes, grapes, yummy avacados...Karo even found a jar of chowchow!  All in all, it was a productive trip, with little percs strategically placed about the store.  I like to visit the market in the fall...they dedicate a whole section to the 'autumn cause'.  I will visit again when they bring their decorative pumpkins, gourds, and cornhusks out.  
And, next time, I'll take my camera! 
Until next time, my healthy, be safe, and, be HAPPY!
Look for the beauty in all things!
