made in the shade

Day 25: Unusual

Every Thursday, the cool neighborhood down the road has a farmers market. We go every chance we get and it has become one of my favorite things to do with Mr. Phish. They have live music and tons of fresh produce and food vendors.

We buy the most delicious pulled pork sandwiches from a mom-and-pop vendor, and then we walk down the block and Mr. Phish buys a large fresh-squeezed lemonade from our other favorite vendor.

And we carefully weave among dogs and strollers and crowds of hipster kids until we find a bit of curb in the shade. And we sit and eat and listen to the music and peoplewatch.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, it is every bit as wonderful as it sounds.

Last time we went, I took my camera. And in the midst of the hustle and bustle, right next to a stand full of freshly baked pies, I found this guy:

There’s something so wonderfully quirky about the photo. The pup is obviously the star, but the giant Bon Jour! above his head is just perfect. I’ve never seen doggles in action–it was even better than I had imagined.

I can’t wait until our next Thursday night farmers market date.
