A Saturday at the Farmer's Market

With Friday's summer solstice, the farmer's market is finally coming into full swing.

There's so much goodness to look forward to - fresh cut flowers and just-picked vegetables.

While there, I met two lovely ladies, Amanda from Winey Goat Farms and Ashley from Dreams Handmade who were selling an array of natural soaps and salves.

I'm intrigued by the all-natural dishwasher cleanser tablets.

But in the end was wooed by a bar of goat's milk soap wrapped in wool which I put it into action after my Saturday of rummaging through a few yard sales, my morning at the market, and a couple of hours spent in the garden.

I really loved how moisturizing it was. I think I may have found a new favorite!

Fresh seasoned corn, new potatoes with butter + parsley, and tender sweet peas will be the highlight of tonight's menu.

Oh, and on the way to the market, I picked up this vintage split oak basket for $1. How convenient! They must have known.
