A Rainy Day Visit to the Wallingford Gardeners Market

Have you been to the Wallingford Gardeners Market on Saturday mornings in Fishbein Park outside the Railroad Station?  If you haven't, you don't know what you are missing!  And it's all LOCAL! 

All the information you need to get there yourself!

It was a humid day! I arrived just right after they had a quick, nasty thunderstorm, but the vendors stuck it out!  There were people selling plants and flowers, fresh Connecticut grown produce and crafts!

Not only did I shop for the humans in the house, I shopped for my rabbits!


The skies looked iffy, but people weren't discouraged.
