Well that was definitely different

A cookbook and some
honey mustard
Pokey and I got up to go to the Farmer's Market today.  It was an hour away and we were looking forward to enjoying some quiet time together, just being lazy explorers.  We found our way without any incident but I can't say the same for the "farmers"... because there weren't any at this market!  Pokey and I pulled up and parked the car, all the while trying to stifle fits of laughter.  All the hype that we had read and the long list of vendors was for naught - there were 8 pitched tents and nothing really exciting.  It was so sad but we wandered it all the same.

After the long stroll down the market, we sauntered over to investigate another love of ours - hole in the wall eateries!  We chose it because of it's name and we would travel back because of the food.  The decor was tacky, the clientele knew every patron by name and the food would outshine them all.  Pokey couldn't decided between breakfast or lunch so he had eggs with a fried pork chop, grits and biscuit.  I couldn't resist the meatball sub.  It was out of this world delicious - Gordon would not have a foul thing to say about the food of this place.  It was up to scratch.

Once we paid our bill, which I must say was less than twenty with a hefty tip included, we were off to explore the town square.  We found a good doctor and an 'antique' store which seemed to favor more on the idea of vintage or antique than the actual working definition.  There were some treasures to be sure but the emotional price tags kept our wallets firmly tucked away.  Still, it was a fun way to spend some time.

We probably won't head up there again but it was definitely different - and I wouldn't have changed a single thing about our non-farmer Farmer's Market adventure.
