Eggs for breakfast

Dianne and Bill Ihling, of Buffalo Hollow Farm, sell their vegetables at the Farmers’ Market: squash, cucumbers, Japanese eggplant, tomatoes, etc. And they also sold farm fresh eggs, two of which I just had for breakfast (over-easy, in case you’re wondering). They were good-tasting eggs with orange yolks. At Saturday’s Farmers’ Market, you can hear […]

Bill & Jane sing

This morning at the Emporia Farmers Market – Bill Ihling and Jane McCoy sing “Strawberry Wine.” I should’ve taken my flip video recorder so y’all could hear how great they sounded. The market was a crowded, busy place. Lots of vendors, lots of veggies and fruit, lots of customers. I brought home cantaloupe, watermelon, fresh […]

Yesterday, some friends and I went to a writing retreat in Baldwin City. We found a lovely farmers market in progress downtown. Flowers and corn-on-the-cob and delicious-looking baked goods.

Swiss chard, beets and cabbage make a colorful palette at the Emporia Farmers Market this morning. Do you want to be the most popular vendor at the farmers market? Plant asparagus. When I took this photo before the bell rang, there were more people in line than Bob Karr’s few bundles of asparagus. I think […]

It was 46 degrees when I headed out to the Farmers Market this morning in Emporia. It’s the second week for the outdoor market this year (we had an indoor one over the winter!) I didn’t make it last week because I was in Leavenworth, but this morning, there were customers and vendors and vegetables […]

In honor of St. Patrick, Tracey Graham was greened-up and selling green things at today’s Farmers Market in downtown Emporia. She even fancied up some flip-flops in green. Jane McCoy and Eric Martin sounded fabulous. It wasn’t just me who thinks so, everyone one was saying, “Aren’t they great?” Linda Simmons’ peanut butter cookies. I […]

Steve Graham in yet another of his Hawaiian shirts. Now that he’s modeled this one, he’ll have to put it at the back of the closet and pull out a different one for the next Farmers Market.

Steve Graham wasn’t wearing his usual Hawaiian shirt this morning at the market. He had slipped back into the ’60s in this groovy tie-dyed shirt with the Emporia Farmers Market logo. Special edition Farmers Market shirts are available – but there’s a limited supply. If they didn’t sell out this morning, you may have a […]
