a wonderful addition to newburyport has been the farmer's market - every sunday we take a walk down to the tannery to check out the farm fresh produce, yummy foods, handmade crafts, live entertainment and friends. bil and i were just talking today about how much fun we have seeing all the folks that used to come to our tea house. yes, once upon a time we owned a wonderful tea house. we miss it - going to the market is not only about veggies - it's about the people too! we spend so much time just saying hello. we love that. it's our own social network and one that gets us all outside, walking to , biking to, breathing fresh air and spending time away from our computers. [i am guilty of spending way too much time on my laptop]. next weekend will be the last one for the season - looking forward to the first one of the new season when we all wake up from our winter slumber.
