Saturday Morning Organic Market

 I had not been to the market in a couple of years.  I was astonished at the size and diversity of it all now.
Booths with pre-prepared food, fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and other assorted  stuff.

Grassy places for the kids to play and run and dance.  Matilda's favorite thing to do - dance.

Large groups having breakfast and camaraderie were nearby.  And, a certain Grammy getting extra hugs.

At times, Matilda and Sebastian were oblivious to the fact that anyone else was around.  A wonderful thing.

Mati was dancing because there was an AWESOME blues band playing.  I mean AWESOME - like New Orleans awesome.  I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

I felt like I was back n the bayous of Louisiana listening to Jimmy Reed on harmonica.  Delightful.  (I got their card, just in case I ever have another party).

It's great to see something that a few years ago was about 15 booths be as large as this is now.  The fresh goat cheese, squash blossoms, breads, and other delicious foods were just that, delicious.

Okay, I'm having a bit of envy come up as soon as you mentioned the blues band with Nawlins style music! Maybe I can entice our Slow Foods market in Merida to consider having a blues band. The grand-kids are precious.

THAT band had my toes tapping all day!
