Sunday Wanderings

From miles around, folks follow the road signs to Beth’s, a farm market with all things fresh and local. For me, it’s a 30 mile round trip worth every mile and the time it takes to get there.

This time of year Beth’s is a real treat as the market is loaded with much of what is perfect for fall decor.

There are pumpkins and gourds galore which makes it very hard to choose just a few.

Many of the pumpkins have names that are both perfectly descriptive

And tickle the funny bone. To tell the truth I didn’t think these were so ugly and added them to my cart.

No way were a couple of these being left behind!  Now there will have to be a ladies lunch to show them off.

Inside Beth’s is a wonderland of interesting produce all grown on the premises.

When there’s so much to choose from the real challenge is not to overbuy.

That’s a challenge I’m seldom able to meet as one of everything wants to jump in my basket.

When the basket can hold no more, I join the crowd in line and start thinking about creative ways to use everything. That’s part of the fun!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. I would get in serious trouble shopping here! I had a lunch lady squash last year, but I’ve never heard the term “double uglies” for those pumpkins, that’s hilarious! Can’t wait to see what you do with your purchases!

    1. I can’t help but wonder who thinks up the names. Most of the ones I bought have been on the table. They provide wonderful inspiration for easy table setting.

  2. Oh my this is such a wonderful place….worth the few extra miles! Love all the pumpkins and gourds but the purple cauliflower stole my heart! Now I am on a quest to find some!!!

  3. Linda, The bumpier and uglier the pumpkin, the more I love them! It looks like a great market!

  5. You were the first person to alert me to Beth’s in a blog post years ago!! Thanks have been going there for many a summer! The best!

  6. Great marketplace. Wish I lived closer to this wonderful place. The one I visit isn’t as interesting and your choices are amazing. The 30 minute trip is well worth the effort. Enjoy!

  7. We visited Beth’s on Friday. So much beautiful produce! Bought way too much, but couldn’t help myself. Did share with a friend, though. What fun.

  8. Linda, what a fabulous market…the produce looks so good! What a fun way to spend a Sunday!

  9. You keep giving me reasons to consider retiring up there someday.

  10. Everything jumps into MY basket, too! I don’t know what that’s all about! 🤔 To me, rows and mounds of colorful fruits and vegetables are just as beautiful as flowers!

  11. Love this market. Wish we had something similar.
