Looking South down Main Street, Downtown West Bend, Wisconsin

I had a few things to pick up today, and where better to get my stuff than the West Bend Farmer’s Market?  We are down to the last three weeks of the Farmer’s Market for the 2013 season.  I picked up a 1/4 peck of Macintosh apples, 4 lbs. of yellow potatoes, a sack of white and red onions mixed, and a big delicious jar of honey that will be perfect in tea over winter.

The weather was dreary and it rained on and off, but it is always wonderful to walk through the Farmer’s Market when you have a chance.  The West Bend High School marching band played for a while on the north end of main street.  There was another musical act performing in Settler’s Park near the middle of the market.  The performer was getting people involved with The Hokey Pokey.  As we walked through we could smell breakfast cooking in the restaurants and  grilling burgers at one of the stands selling food for a local children’s group.  There were beautiful bouquets of flowers and tons of veggies and canned goods for sale.  We walked with young and old people, and moms with babies strapped to them with a sling!  There were plain pumpkins and painted pumpkins and gourds and squash!  It was just a good day to get out and enjoy Fall!

White Pumpkins Only $5 each. That’s a steal!!

We stopped at a few more places on the way home: Halloween Express to look over the costumes and makeup, Hobby Lobby for some glitter for my daughters part in the high school play “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” as the White Witch, and Family Video to pick up some scary movies we are watching in a few minutes.  When we got home I was exhausted and needed to rest this baby bump!  In a few months I should be good as new and ready to conquer the world…I hope!

Now, I am off to watch one of the many “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movies with my family.  Wish me luck with that…

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
