August Market

I couldn’t believe how many people were at the farmers market today! All the college kids are back in town, since school starts this week, so the crowds were a little crazy.

crowds at the August marketWe didn’t buy much because we have lots and lots of tomatoes, peppers and onions in our garden at home, just waiting to be canned into salsa and tomato sauce.

A monster cookie from the Amish bakery is always yummy, but this time, they had BIG monster cookies, which were almost as big as my head!
