Weekend Farmers Market with Wet Snowflakes

November 16, 2009

With the closer farmers market closing down for the season, we’ve been trekking over to the main Calgary farmers market to do our shopping.  And eat some breakfast.  And get some coffee (we can’t decide if latin passion latte or chocolate fantasy latte is better, we keep trying them in order to make up our minds.  But as I keep telling Mr. J, we all need some latin passion every once in awhile).  But while we buy organic chicken, local farm bison, fresh apples (the current favorite is honey crisp), and vegetables, this will always be my favorite place in the whole entire market:

Oh the joys of the Belgian pastry stall.  How does one decide?  This weekend we chose the lemon custard raspberry danish.  Drool. 

I spent a lot of time this weekend sewing rather than knitting, but now the snowflake sweater is ready for its zipper.

I was worried it would be too small, but sigh of relief even though it is snug, it fits me!  A nice close fit, plus all those cables mean that this is a warm sweater, which was the intention.  That’s a bit of a crappy photo, its still wet from its last bath to get the collar and zipper bands to lie flat.  I would like a nice big beefy zipper with big metal teeth instead of one with thin plastic teeth, but we’ll see what I can find.

    Oh to have so many pastries…how DO you choose? Honeycrisp are my faves right now, too…so crisp so tart and sweet.
    The sweater is fabulous!

    Do you really go to the Farmer’s Market every week? Go, Anne.
