Summer and farmers' markets go together quite perfectly.
Fresh produce sold by the people who grow it is just so luscious.
While vacationing in Colorado recently, we stopped at the cutest market ever in Cherry Creek.
Even the name of the town----Cherry Creek----is enough to make you smile, isn't it?
Are there really cherries growing near a creek there? Hmmmm. I wonder.
Because it was mid-week, the market was on the small side but there were plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, baked goods and some non-edible items, too.
Among the jams and jellies were exotic combos like drunken fig!
I bought one plain and one almond croissant.
The woman behind the counter was from Lithuania, the home country of my paternal grandparents.
There was even music by an accordionist and guitarist.
Farmers' markets bring out the best in everything.
