Redwood Farmers Market

The Redwood Farmers Market starts in mid-July every year and runs until all the produce is gone from the fields and greenhouses (usually late September). We couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet and greet with some locals, bake a few pies, and make several bouquets of wildflowers. Here are Staciemae and Josh readying some bundles the night before:

For the second week of this year's market, we had some special guests up from Manhattan; Alana and Pablo. They came out bright and early Saturday morning to help out.
Josh took it upon himself to study some parlor tricks, then set up a magic tricks booth. He stayed in the box for most of the morning in spite of the 85+ degree heat.
Josh only took one break; and that was to hold a pies sign out on the side of Route 37.

What a guy.
Many thanks to all the folks who came out to support local agriculture. See you next Saturday!
