Over the weekend, Dick and I shopped the Minneapolis Farmers Market on Lyndale Avenue along with two of my daughters who were visiting... Lisa, with her husband and two kids from New Jersey, and Jessica from Florida. Jess and I broke away from the pack for a while to sit and listen to a jazz musician while we ate from a box of raspberries and shared an oatmeal flax muffin... both purchased from the market. Besides in-season freshly-harvested veggies, vendors were selling homemade cleaning products, flowers (I bought a huge orange-red colored potted mum.), cheese (I chose two bags of yummy slightly salty cheese curds.), as well as a variety of clothing and food. It would be fun to live closer to be able to shop the market every weekend but, even though our Brainerd Farmers market is much smaller, I find the variety and quality to be very good and I am grateful for the growers in our area.
We were in Minneapolis to attend the wedding of my sister Rita's daughter. We had some time to spare so we took our grandkids to the Childrens Science Museum. My favorite part was an entire town set up for the kids to interact with.
