Farmers Market Fun

So last Saturday I was able to make it to Market Square to the farmers market and to The French Market restaurant. If you don't mind waiting a few minutes you can get the best... and I do mean best... crepe ever! The restaurant was featured in the May issue of Southern Living. I dragged my friend Samantha with me and we had the best time. It's one of my favorite places to visit. Here are some pics that show some of the sights.  I remember coming to the World's Fair when I was a little girl. Okay I know I am old. Funny that my family would live all over the world and end up here.

Some of you might not know that I am totally a city girl at heart. I love the idea of being able to walk everywhere to get the things you need. This is one of my favorite places to live in Knoxville. No grass to keep up with and just a few plants to water. I will have a big yard at my Charleston house. Hey....a girl can dream!

The babies playing in the fountain at Market Square.
A shot of Market Square and the clock tower downtown. Lots of crafts and vegetables to look at.

The line for the food truck for Cruz farms. They were selling raw milk and it was crazy busy. I would have tried it but it was just too hot for milk!

The sign for the Cruz Farm Raw Milk truck. I thought this sign was too cute and all of the girls were dressed up in cute dresses, aprons, handkerchiefs and boots.

My best friend Sam chillin on the patio while we waited for our crepes at The French Market.

The crepes at The French Market. Featured in Southern Living. If you haven't been. You need to go. The crepe batter is flown in from France.

A pillow from a boutique in Market Square. I die. Must make and soon! This pillow was like 45 dollars.  I totally think I can do this!

 I just love going downtown. I feel lucky that there is so much to do right here around us. It is just finding the time to do them that's the problem. Get out and explore what East Tennessee has to offer and buy local whenever you can.  Please forgive the random photots below. I had to share them.

Random picture of a quilt I laid out for my mom. There was just to many colors and it was driving her crazy so she had me help her. I am really excited because I have a bundle of fabric just like this waiting for me to sew up!

Last but not least a random photo of Sophie showing off her mad swimming skills.  She loves the water!
