Off To the Market

Ron at main entrance

Got a call from Sophie's childhood 'dog sitters' Cathy and Mary. They were heading to the market this morning and wanted us to meet them there and then to lunch somewhere in Halifax.

                 Mary, Cathy and Ron

Cathy and Mary run Country Critter Sitters about 10 km down the shore from us. Sophie spent two days a week with them when she was a pup and we were still working full time. She loves them and learned so much from them and the other dogs.

Looking at George's Island from Market.

We are very glad Sophie had this time with the girls as she had failed every 'doggie' class/obedience course she ever attended! lol

I never knew we grew our OWN tea! lol

So we met at the new Halifax Seaport Farmers Market at 10:30 today.

Friday is International Day at the Market. There were vendors representing countries from all over the world.

We sampled where we could. And bought when we couldn't sample.

Cathy and Mary had a good time. They don't get too many days off from their doggy daycare duties. 

I met Cathy when we were attending St. Mary's University in Halifax back in the late 60's. We reconnected a few years ago and she and her sister, Mary, were living just 'down the road' from us.

By the time we had visited every single booth at the market, we were hungry and decided to go to lunch a Jane's On The Common which Ron and I like a lot.

            Which one do you like the best, Mary?

We had a great lunch and the desserts were to die for! 

We said goodbye to Cathy and Mary and arranged to meet in a couple of weeks at a print show at the Archives of Nova Scotia.

                             Bought a loaf of apricot and honey bread.....M-M-M good!


  1. ooohhhhh....that looks like so much fun and tasty, too....!!!


  2. FUN DAY! I kind of got a kick out of the fresh & healthy booth - with Pepsi :-) I love baked goods, I would probably buy wayyyy to much! MMmmm, apricot honey bread sounds really good. I just ate supper and now I want a goody! You can really grow tea in Nova Scotia? I was thinking it was grown in a warmer climate, hmm. You would have had a hard time pulling me away from the silver jewelry! (As IF I needed any more!)

  3. Boy that looks like fun! And were Mary and Ron looking at macarons in that desert case? I love macarons!!! They're so expensive here in Oklahoma. Looks like you had a great much to see and sample and the view was beautiful!


  4. Cathy and Mary did a splendid job with Sophie. (It's hard to believe she flunked obedience). The market looks like a fun time to me, and those desserts! Yum!

  5. Is this a new home/location for the Farmers Market that used to be held every Saturday morning in the old Alexander Keith's brewery? Or is this something completely different?

  6. Glad you all had a lovely day.
    Someone asked me if Dillon was a show dog the other day .... I lauged all the way to the river where he promptly jumped in.
    It was - for once - because he had been walking very nicely at heel & when he does this he looks like he is skipping ( rather like a dressage horse )
    Show dog !!! what a joke !


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
