Hello and welcome November. It is turning out to be an interesting kind of change. Last month we are bouncing around the Eighties and Nineties and even still having named storms. Now with the first weekend of the month the temperatures are dipping down below the fifties. It’s time for everyone to get their layering techniques down again. Come on down to the market and get some fresh fruits, homegrown vegetables from the local farm, hot boiled peanuts and even check out the restaurants to see what they have in store for the weekend. Of course, walking around the rows looking at all the many varied items that our vendors offer is always fun.
This weekend is full of fun and excitement with the semi-annual antique car show happening in the front yard of the market, the free haunted house and the vendors are even dressing up for the occasion. Bring your kids to go through the Haunted House. Adults can go through too. You might even get some candy for making it through. The parents can enjoy all the old classic cars and possibly even buying one for yourself. That is if anyone is willing to part with their beauties.
It was very disappointing but with the threatening weather of a named storm passing through the north Florida area all but one of the authors decided they didn’t want to take a chance driving over for the say. We have rescheduled the event for November 16, 2019 and we will be located in the front yard area underneath the oak trees in tents. We will be inviting published authors, artists who want to attend, graphic artists and others who can help a local writer get published and hopefully even make some money doing it. We hope that the local libraries and middle and high school Creative Writing/Journalism teach might come on by too.
October is National Book month and we will be having a Support Your Local Author Event right here in the market on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We hope you and yours will come out and support our local tri-county area published writers, ask lots of questions and even start a few writers groups. Yes, the vendor spaces are rapidly filling up and some of our vendors have moved to different spaces around the market. All just in time for the influx of tourists coming to the area to enjoy the weather, the natural resources and just because they can. Hopefully, we all will either get some great bargains or make some money over the next couple of months.
Hello everyone hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Yes, we could use a little rain to tamp down the dust and help out our lawns but it should be a very nice one. Mornings are getting cooler and lasting just a tiny bit longer. People are decorating their yards and houses with fall colors and Halloween will be here before you know it. The market people just love this time of year as more people are coming back to the area and everyone pretty much just loves the upcoming holiday. Especially, Sonny, the owner. He and his volunteers are busy putting up decorations, displays and getting the Haunted house ready for the kids and adults to enjoy.
