The last time I went to the KCC Farmers' Market was in October 2008 - almost 3 years ago. It's so neat that I can look up stuff like that on this blog. Never thought I'd be blogging this long, but here I still am, and now I got this record of my comings and goings for the past few years. A journal. I got me a journal . . . a photographic journal. Kinda cool.
I returned to the Farmer's Market today. Wendell came along. We immediately lost each other, it was so crowded. Thank God for cell phones. Remember back in the day?

This is the tent that I bought it from. I don't even know the name . . .

I also bought these scones - blueberry, peach, pineapple and chocolate ($1.75 each) . . .
and this Plantation Iced Tea ($2.50) . . .
from the KCC Culinary Arts tent.
I got this young ginger too $3.00/pound.

Here are the rest of the pictures, in no particular order, for you to see.
