Charlottesville City Market!
On a dreary, drizzle-drenched day like today, when all I want to do is play the MobWars application on Facebook, watch the America’s Next Top Model marathon, then curl up for a looooong nap, it helps to know that eventually, the skies *will* clear, the weather *will* warm, and Spring will spring.
An indication of this? The Charlottesville City Market begins this Saturday! Woot Woot! So get your hineys up bright and early and get down to the corner of Water and First streets in Charlottesville (just off the Downtown Mall). Bring your kids, your fuzzy fur-children, and your friends. You can find anything from potted herbs, veggies, and flowers (my faves) to yummy baked goods, to handcrafted jewelry, to brunch or lunch for yourself. Everything from organic meats to doggie treats. I dare you to go and *NOT* buy something.
Who’s your favorite City Market vendor? Don’t know the name of mine, but he sells GORGEOUS lavender plants the size of basketballs, and his stall is at the far end of the L-shaped market. He’s scruffy and always wears a Pittsburgh Steelers sweatshirt. And I sure hope he’s there Saturday because my yard is looking positively BARREN…
