Our annual visit to opening day of the Baltimore City Market was as wonderful as always. It has really expanded in size, and one can only imagine that it is more amazing each week as the growing season moves along. The market is held under both sections of highway. Love the artistic support stanchions.
New this year, was a large area of booths under the right hand side. Right off, I bought a pretty silver necklace and earrings, and next we were on to check out this farmer selling goat. Loved the sign. To the left you can see the beginning of the "Wheelie Good Smoothie" stand. These young people ride bikes to generate the energy to make smoothies in attached blenders! What a fun and healthy place.
Wheelie Good Smoothies!
The market is redolent with the smell of so many international foods, many of them cooked to order. The displays themselves, are works of art.
Ah, the smell of fresh bread!
Flowers were everywhere at reasonable prices. Too bad we flew down.
LM acquired a luscious cinnamon treat.
Honey, so pretty in the sunlight.
The asparagus and rhubarb were at their peak and so beautifully displayed.
Gerberas. Their color is so intense and appealing, so cheery.
Omelets of all kinds to order
This amazing mushroom booth is always there, and I am still regretting that I did not get a fried mushroom sandwich. It was very, very warm, and I just did not feel like eating.
Another view of the mushroom selections
Heavenly iris with the most wonderful fragrance
Flowers, flowers, everywhere!
Nephew, Martin (back to camera), Ev, and LM
Crowds. The buy local campaign is working!
These greens were so beautiful, and of all types.
Several sneak peaks at the Baltimore skyline from under the bridge....one could almost imagine being a troll.
Well, that about winds up the coverage of our hot and steamy (weather wise anyway) sojourn to Baltimore!
It's very busy around these parts this week. On Saturday, LM is leading a "Learn How to Fish Day" for 10 women who are taking part in a Women in the Outdoors Program. He's looking forward to it, and so far the weather promises to hold out. It will be held at West Dennis Beach beginning at 10 am 5/15. (anyone is welcome to stop by). They will be trying to catch bluefish and striped bass. Stay tuned for a report. I will be in Provincetown having lunch with a dear friend that day, and getting ready for the quilt presentation on Sunday afternoon.
In the midst of it all, I am trying to continue work on my hip and fitness....massage tomorrow night and teaching myself yoga via a DVD at home. Working well!
