I just started going to a farmers market close to our new apartment, and I wanted to share some photos from my recent trip. The market is so cute - very close to the Harmonee Bridge and to a beautiful park area with a little stream.
During my trips I see such colorful, tasty looking veggies. There's usually music playing, and lots of families walking around picking out that week's dinner ingredients. I drool at all the baked goods, and I've started to stop at a pastry vendor to pick up breakfast treats to go with my tea.
On my last visit, this pastry vendor, seeing my camera, asked me if I was a photographer. I answered "just an amature." Hearing that the vendor told me to take a picture - of anything. After I had done that, he handed me a quarter saying "The only difference between professional and amature photographers is that professionals are paid. And now you're a professional. You said 'amature' so dismissively. Never ever limit yourself."
How's that for some nice inspiration?
I'm hoping to stop by a few more times before the market season ends. And you can bet I'll be bringing my camera.
