Coventry Fair

Mr. B and I went to the Coventry Farmers' Market today. I had heard it was a nice market. But I was stunned when we arrived to see how large it is! There were plenty of food booths and judging by the lines, the food must have been very good.

There were vegetables, fresh CT grown meat and lots of crafts. I saw lovely hemp skirts and bags, jewelry, photographs and hand woven scarves. There was even a baker who specializes in gluten free food. I took her card for when my daughter-in-law visits.

So for those of you who live in New England, you must visit the Coventry, Connecticut Farmers' Market. It is held every Sunday, 11-2, June through October at the Nathan Hale Homestead. 

Oh yes, there is live music as you can see in the picture.

Join Mosaic Monday at Little Red House and see what everyone has been up to!

Hi Nancy! Great compilation! I also love attending weekend markets in my country. Discovering new products from starting to experienced entrepreneurs and meeting new people are some things I treasure in attending weekend markets.

Hi Nancy!
That fair looks GREAT; love the lady in the period costume!

We have much in common - including kids living in L.A. My daughter's a grad student at USC, lives in East Hollywood, but is going for a PhD in Philosophy so she will NEVER make any money! My other daughter is finishing a Master's this year at Rutger's Mason Gross school in costume design, and teaches theatrical makeup there.

Yikes I hope they can all make livings!

Thanks for visiting me -- we have hired an arborist to check out the tree that's being threatened, and we did have a cordial talk with the neighbors on Saturday. Fingers crossed!
