We have an amazing Farmers Market here in St. Alberta, AB Canada. There are some pretty amazing talented people who make such cool goodies - little treasures.

Dana said...

So it seems there are always things going on in Utah...I asked my fiance' if we could just move there...no such luck. In East Tennessee in my hometown every 3rd weekend of October we have Heritage Days. All the locals come out and show their crafts. I even got to help make apple butter right in the middle of our courthouse sidewalk. It's neat I just wish was geared more towards the "younger" generation because Bijou market looks awesome!!! Have a wonderful time!!! :)

This is so fabulous. Surely wished we'd had something like this here or I live near the event. The east coast reallu sucks on so many levels. The only good thing, it offers the shortest flight when traveling to my family in Europe and vice versa. Beautiful thing you guys are doing!!!
