My neighborhood hosts its own farmers market and the last one of the season was on September 11th. Doesn’t seem like an appropriate day for a celebration, but what our veterans, police and fire responders do every day allows us to celebrate and be free. We’ll never forget the lives lost on 9-11 and in all our wars.
Life goes on and I feel fortunate to live in a community that supports its farmer’s market. It’s filled with organic produce from the fertile Willamette valley. There are also vendors of bakery goods, gelato, flowers, crafts and food carts. One of the crowd favorites is the wood fired pizza. I choose the market as my Tamale Thursday. I love homemade tamales and look forward to them every week…..except they weren’t there on the last day.
Now we have to wait another 10 months for the market to open again. Hope you all had a nice summer.
I used my Holga 120 CFN and Kodak Portra 400 film.
