Fairs, Festivals, and Markets

If you say the words "Market" I will pretty much be interested no matter what.  I love being outdoors, sampling food, purusing unique items, getting some sunshine, and walking away with a keepsake that becomes my own.  It is one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend day.

Below I  have done my best to compile lists of Farmer's Markets and Antique markets that happen once a month or once a week in my neck of the woods... Don't miss out on this goodness!
