Saturday... To Market, to market, then to Maine, and home again to Cambridge... a busy day.
|A Haymarket vendor stand filled with brightly colored fruits and veggies.|
The day started early with a trip to Haymarket to buy veggies and fruit for the week. The colors of the vendor stands were so brilliant, so I share them here. The prices and the freshness of the produce inspires me to cook! I have plans to make a vegetable soup, a red sauce, and balsamic glazed strawberry dessert.
Biddeford is an old mill town about 1 1/4 hour drive from Boston. Historically, it was the home of a number of textile businesses. Now, many of the buildings stand quietly awaiting rejuvenation. Saco River Yarns is situated in a warehouse space that is also home to Saco River Dyehouse. I have so much to share with you, so I will again tease you with some snapshots, and promise to tell you more tomorrow. Hey, did I forget to mention.... we saw the Great White Bale!!!!!!!!!!
