Sunday Morning Market

Sunday Morning Market
Last week during the quiet, peaceful hours of Sunday morning we set up a small Honor System market at our farm. Michael and I liked the idea of providing a few baskets of produce, eggs, honey or bread for those who weren't able to stop by our market on other days.  Quietly little groups of women, men and families strolled in, picked and weighed and then paid - all without the help of anyone else.  I happened to need to run over to the market and had a most wonderful chit chat with two women who came at the same time. I loved that moment.

So, we're going to do this again - tomorrow morning. After I milk the goats - around 8 am I'll put eggplant, squash, onions, potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggs, honey, Jill's peach jam, my Red Wine Jelly at the market. Everything Goat - in the black refrigerator is available - all the time - and the prices are marked. 

You weigh your produce at the scale by the table, then you simply market down what you are purchasing, your name and how much $ and then leave the card in the black cabinet and then put your $$ in the money box inside the cabinet. 

It's simple and it's the honor system and the farm is quiet and peaceful on Sunday morning.  Around noon the Sunday Morning Market will end.  Have a great Sunday!
