Farmers’ Market Hawley, Pennsylvania

Yesterday, my pretty girl Jessie had an appointment in Hawley, the next town over, for a shampoo and grooming.

While waiting for the deed to be done, I noticed there was a small farmers’ market in the park across the street and thought “why not”, with little enthusiasm and low expectations. Still, I knew that “Jessie Jane” was going to have a ball with those groomers and that it would take time, so I crossed the street.

What a pleasant surprise!  The market was small but the produce was lovely, the farmers loquacious and friendly.  It was almost like, dare I, France 🙂  I’m going back every Friday! Look at this lettuce!

    Honestly Jesse is prettier than the lettuce, but so glad you found the market! Is Hawley closer than Scranton??

    Ha ha – I bet you couldn’t resist. I have been to farmers’ markets around Atlanta which are astonishingly good. One of them was in an old railway goods yard and the platforms lent themselves to displaying vegetables, as one walked around where the tracks had been.

    Almost like France but can’t be as good:)
    Doggie looks lovely.

  4. Your doggie looks lovely, not sure my loopy Weimaraners would appreciate the attention! Back in France our neighbours keep banging on about ‘les radis’, what do you do with yours besides throwing them in a salad? 🙂

    Glad you finally found a convenient market! We’re super spoiled by the ones here. One of the only things KY has ever done right was to use the tobacco settlement money to help farmers and promote markets.

  6. Glad you found a good market but awwwww…..Jessie, gorgeous!

    Great that you found somewhere with ‘real’ food. It’s always a pleasure.

    Glad you found a farmer’s market with fresh produce. Every Saturday, we drive 12 miles south to one for heirloom tomatoes.
