Saturday at the Farmer’s Market at the Horse Farm in Lafayette
I had a wonderful adventure Saturday at the Horse Farm. I hadn’t been out there since it first opened, so we decided to have breakfast at Mel’s then go across the street to the Farmer’s Market. Even in the cold weather, there were so many vendors!
My first stop was to admire the beautiful planters, treasure boxes and toys at Tissie’s Woodworking. She crafts wonderful natural pieces from reclaimed wood. Since she’s also a master gardener, her planters and window boxes are made right- they’re nothing like the ones you find at the home improvement stores- and they are beautiful!
PJ’s Jerky and More is an apt name for the booth that sells gorgeous crocheted scarves, purses and headbands as well as jerky for people and dogs. I didn’t have a hat and it was quite cool, so I bought a beautiful headband and some jerky treats for the dogs. (We all loved our treats!)
Taylormade Eats is where we tasted kale chips for the first time. Taylor takes a under-served but nutritious leafy dark green vegetable and turns it into a deliciously toasted health and natural snack. My favorite was the Sour Cream and Onion, but she they also come in cheesy flavor, Cajun cheddar, flamin hot, and salted versions. She does sweets, too, but she was already sold out when we arrived.
It was hard to pass up all the food samples, but we’d just had breakfast, so we mostly shopped among the crafts booths, but there were vegetables, king cakes, pillow covers, jewelry, ceramics, artwork, soaps, children’s clothing and the most gorgeous cutting boards I’ve ever seen.
I can’t wait to go back! Put the Farmer’s Market at the Horse Farm on your schedule for Saturday. You’ll love it!
