There were several booths selling plants. There were shrubs, trees, vegetables and herbs on display.
This happy fella was selling water filtration systems and was a lot of fun with his teasing and joking.
There were several vendors selling oils, lotions and soaps of all varieties. I am not in the market for those just now, but I did find a lady who is local who sells essential oils at a reasonable price. I bought a 1 ounce bottle of Orange.
My friend, Lisa and her daughter Lexi were there with their alpacas ~ Moms and babies ~ from Thunder Mountain Alpaca Ranch. I wrote about them a couple weeks ago - Picnic With The Pacas. The are super soft and very mellow. They look like huge stuffed toys, and I just fell in love with them right away!

Afterwards we walked next door to the local Cooperative store where another friend had organized a "Cash Mob" to show up between 1:00 pm and 1:30 pm. We surprised the Co-op staff and each spent the agreed upon $10 or more. I believe half of our church fellowship showed up!
Here's my contribution...and proof I was there! What fun this was, and a wonderful way to infuse some cash into the local economy! Besides, I found more oil and a cold drink to rehydrate myself!
There you have it! My relaxing afternoon wandering the Farmer's Market. What did you do today to celebrate Earth Day?
