I don’t know if it’s because I grew up on a farm, but I’ve always been drawn to the farmers’ markets.

In college, my roommate and I would go to the market on Saturday mornings for fresh flowers. And to scope on the hottie farmers.

After college, I worked long hours, I didn’t have time for my own vegetable garden. So I depended on the farmers’ markets to feed me.

Every new city or town in which I’ve lived, I’ve sought out the local market.

Now that I live in Albuquerque, I’ve found a great community at the downtown growers’ market. I’m grateful to have been on the “inside” for the last two summers, helping Sandra sell her delicious food and drinks. But now I’m sad – the last market of the season for us was this past Halloween weekend.

So no more of this adorableness greeting me each Saturday morning:

That’s Helen, Patty and Sophia – their booth was next door to Sandra’s, so they spoiled us. A LOT.

And no more visits from the fine Lewis Casey (sans his sunflower head you might be more used to seeing him wearing):

All summer, Lewis brought treats from his garden for Sandra and me – peppers, figs, pomegranates! Thanks Lewis!

It was a busy fun day, so I didn’t get a chance to get photos of everyone. But a big thank you to all the farmers, in particular, Viva Verde Farm, Chispas Farm, Amyo Farm, and Dragon Farm. You guys fed me all summer, so thank you! And thanks especially to Sandra for two very fun summers in a row. I’m going to miss your farm bowl, girl!

I managed to get a shot of the pet costume contest:

Haha, bulldogs dressed as tiny sharks – people are funny with their dogs!

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you here!

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
