From Fresh Food to Fairy Houses to Turtles and Sunspots!

Friday, Aug. 5, 2016  Visitors to the Market this week had a host of directions in which to go!

….the special condiments and treats…..7R decision

As the adults did their shopping, there were so many choices for the KIDS – young ones, older kids, and kids-at-heart.

Stopping at the Pequotsepos Nature Center booth offered some close up, hands on nature experiences including an encounter with a real live native turtle!

Checking out those sunspots with Scott MacNeill’s sunscope – straight from Frosty Drew was another option.

Perhaps a little kid shopping was in order, encouraging one of our young entrepreneurs.

And then there were the Fairy Houses coordinated by Hera Director Adrian….Check out the process of creating a fairy house along with some of the imaginative interpretations.

As for the adults?  Perhaps soil testing was called for in the garden….or there was a need to check the quality of well water…..

Or maybe it was time to select a photograph as a reminder of the beauty of South County….Last Friday (every Friday) was the place for families and friends to be!
