The Pittsboro Farmers’ Market invited craft vendors to take a space in November and December, wanting to fill out the row as farmers dropped out as their crops finished. I was available on November 10 and it seemed like an interesting experiment, so I took a space.
I love working in Pittsboro; I know so many of the people who come by. It was a dry day and I didn’t need to haul and set up the tent. I first set up across the parking lot, so I would have space for people to hoop without bumping into other vendors. After a while, I realized no-one was walking across the space to try a hoop, so I moved into the main row of vendors.
Modest sales, lots of fun; a pleasant albeit chilly afternoon. Bought kohlrabi and tried that in a salad the next day. The event closed out with a beautiful moon and wonderful teal blue sky.
Thursdays for the rest of November are already booked; plan to return in December if the weather is dry. I will dress more warmly next time.
John rode up from Goldsboro and we had dinner after loading out at S&T in Pittsboro. May get some roast peppers for him; I don’t like anything that leaves fire in my mouth and these were hot (to me) peppers.
