Going to Market

Behind First Baptist Church on Montreat Road each Saturday morning in Black Mountain NC, gather some great vendors, and their loyal customers!

 Someone will have a bountiful harvest of corn pretty soon...and maybe beans.

 Parking at the back side of the market, this is the view I see.  A parking lot is right next to the church, with a lot more traffic.

 The grey tent is my favorite, MudBuddies Pottery

 Shelly and his dog Baxter

The small people were everywhere, and the whole market is kid and dog friendly.

Today's quote:

To blame the poor for subsisting on welfare has no justice unless we are also willing to judge every rich member of society by how productive he or she is. Taken individual by individual, it is likely that there's more idleness and abuse of government favors among the economically privileged than among the ranks of the disadvantaged. -Norman Mailer, author (31 Jan 1923-2007)


  1. Hello, I love these markets. I have never seen one with seafood. Love the dog and people shots. Have a happy day!

  2. Roger sells lots of fresh seafood which is trucked in to Asheville weekly from the Outer Banks of NC...the prices are higher than supermarkets, but it really is fresh and lovely! I treat myself about once a month to either scallops, salmon or shrimp, if I get there early enough that he hasn't sold out!


Looking forward to hearing from you!
