First Winter Market a Success!!

I have put together a nice photostream of the first winter market held at Memorial Auditorium November 22nd.  
It was packed, people had perma-grins on their faces, and the air was festive as customers bought supplies for Thanksgiving dinner.  It took me so long to just get past the first aisle of vendors because there were so many people, but also because there were so many folks I haven't seen since market ended back in October!  We had a lot of fun talking with everyone and learning what a valuable resource the market is to our Burlington community.  I didn't take nearly as many photos as I should have - I must say, it was quite a challenge balancing my lunch, purchases, AND the camera at this market!  What a great day!

The masses descend.

The balcony afforded a fantastic view of the orderly mayhem on the floor.

Lewis Creek was there with a wide selection of produce.

Fuad, the Samosaman was there with his popular samosas.

Arethusa Collective Farm was there with great storage crops...

...and debuting their new tomato sauce, sauerkraut, and frozen veggies!

There were plenty of new vendors to check out, too.  Here's Geni's Raw Vegan Foods.

And another welcome addition, East Shore Vineyards!  

More pictures coming soon!
