Des Moines Farmers’ Market Pictures

Last month, Dexter and I took a trip to Des Moines to visit his mom. In recent weeks, blogging has come in dead last on the list of things I want to do (I think I’m still recovering from mean-spirited comments), so I never got around to telling you about it. I’m sitting at my usual farmers’ market right now (my bare feet touching the chemical-ridden road, my back leaned up against a light post which I am sure serves as an urban tree for neighborhood dogs…I’m going to take a shower as soon as I get home). I’m saving my post about today’s finds for Market Monday, but I thought I’d post a few pictures from the Des Moines market in the meantime.

I want these for my living room. I would base my whole new color scheme on them.

There was music on just about every corner, from middle-aged cover bands to steel drums to this guy.

  1. Glad you’re back blogging. It’s always a treat to read. I see you were sporting the red lipstick again that day!! Good! Looks like you had fun, and some great goodies, although you were more brave than I would have been with the drink with beets in it. Looking forward to more posts!!
