Saturday at the farmers' market

The flower vendor and her lovely products.

I woke up early this morning and went to the Matthews Community Farmers' Market, getting there before 7AM. I took these photos as the farmers and vendors were setting up. It was still a little dark, but you get the idea. :-)

The front entrance to the market, from Trade Street (next to the hardware store).

Everything sold at the Matthews Community Farmers' Market is grown or made within 50 miles of Matthews. This is a place that fully supports "Local Folks, Local Farms, Local Food."

It's peach season in the Carolinas!

The Community House opens early, so you can set yourself up with a cuppa coffee while you wait for the bell to ring at 7:15AM.
