Farmers Market Saturdays & Giveaway Draw

The Grand Lake Farmers Market in Oakland, CA runs every Saturday from 9am-2pm.  The strawberries are what drew me to post this video, because I was so excited to see fresh local strawberries at our town's market this morning.  Of course, by the time I sent my neice back with some money - they were all gone.  I'll have to try earlier next week! 

Also, congratulations to Tara from Arizona, who was picked by my niece in the draw for The Faeries Oracle!  Please send me your mailing info Tara - to RueandHyssop (at) gmail (dot) com.  Thanks so much to all who entered!

I love the Farmer's Market goodies. The strawberries, oranges, bread, lettuce and carrots, I love them all. Farmer's Markets are so fun.

Thanks for sharing.

Happy Sunday & Blessings!

Thanks for the visit, Rue. Yes, it sounds like I've got coyotes judging from your description as well. Here's hoping they don't get too close!!

Congratulations to your winner. I'm sure you'll find berries in the market for several more weeks to come. It's a shame you missed them this week. I hope your day is wonderful. Blessings....Mary
