Market Day

I never have time to photograph our flowers at the market.  I still have a camera instead of a phone, so whipping out the camera  takes time and thought, of which I rarely have either when we first get to the market.  The setup is time consuming and the first customers are ready to buy way before the actual market is open.  The last several weeks, I have had bridal parties picking up their flowers for their big day and that keeps us hopping and running around like crazy.  So today I had a moment in  the market day when I remembered my camera and took a few shots.  This is a the midpoint of our market so many flowers are already gone. 

We offer our flowers by the stem to make your own, small little posies, our standard bouquet, various flowers bunched together for a set price.  There are many price points for our customers to buy a few or many flowers.

Our booth is open and inviting and large enough to accommodate strollers and families.

Today was a great day at the market, the weather was warm, not hot and there were a lot of folks out shopping.  Our market is a producers only market so people are supporting our local veggie farmers, the fruit and berry folks and a couple of local flower farmers.  We are very thankful for all who shop with us and support local agriculture.  Thanks so much!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom.

  1. All I can say is I wish I lived in Oregon. Oooh and I just noticed...Willamette Valley...Pinot Noir...that's it.

  2. Those lilies are lovely! I think your booth works great. I like the green shade cloth and the flower banners.
