Tuesday Tidings-Street Fare

The weather here in Central Florida has been oh-so-nice.
As much time as possible is spent outside this time of year,
so Saturday was a great chance
to check out the street fair downtown.

Here you can find the streets blocked off
to make room for vendors of all kinds.
It's a once-a-month event.

Jars are an obsession interest of mine.
These were fancified though.
Maybe I'm old-fashioned,
but I like 'em plain and simple.

These unusual globes have lights in them.

These lanterns were made of heavy-duty plastic.
The vendor wasn't sure if it was recycled.  I asked.

My favorite stop was this table.
Maria sells a variety of products,
crafted by her own hands.
Her family raises goats which provide milk for
soaps and cheeses.
We talked for a while and she was
glad to share her knowledge with me.
It seems I'm finding more local folks
who share my vision of healthier, simple living.
You can find information about her farm here.

Her homemade rosemary bread was delicious.
That's the loaf I bought there in front of the basket.
It didn't even make it out of the parking lot.

Local food is such a fun discovery!
