This Little Armadillo Goes to Market
Posted August 27, 2012on:
Today Andy went with me to the Ladner Village Market where we had tons of fun. He helped me pick out a cute whale stuffy with a matching book at Stephanie MacPherson’s table; a Christmas gift for a special little someone. Stephanie creates wonderful stuffed animals and soft cover books that tell a story about the animal. Her business is called Stephanimals Andy wanted to make friends with all the stuffies.
We couldn’t resit buying two Bakewell tarts to take home for tea with hubby. Being British, these bring back fond memories for him. Andy seems to like his sweets as well. There were many stalls of fresh baking which were difficult to pass by.
Many people were out at the market which is a popular event every other Sunday in the summer. Great music, beautiful flowers, pottery, interesting garden stones and fresh farm produce were in abundance. I came home laden with many goodies.
We had a wonderful barbeque later with grilled patty pan squash, eggplant, cherry tomatoes and yellow peppers, roasted fingerling potatoes with fresh garlic, and coleslaw. All items bought at the market, with Andy’s help. Yummy!
Andy is not burried in the peppers if that is what you were thinking!
Ladner is a quaint village ten minutes from where I live. I love to go to the Sunday market in the summer whenever I can.
Do you have a market near you where you can browse crafts, baking and produce?
