Memphis Farmers Market

While in Memphis, I visited another farmers market, this one downtown. You can visit their website here. Allison loves to go to this one so she thought I would enjoy it and asked her husband, Craig, to take me down there. There are two pavilions with plants, flowers, produce, seafood, bread, artwork....lots of cool stuff!

Craig is buying some cherry tomatoes below....he loves tomatoes.

I bought Allison a bouquet of flowers. Below, the vendor is putting together Allison's bouquet. These were some of the prettiest zinnias I have ever seen. I divided the bouquet when we got home and made one of just zinnias.

They use the flowers like the ones blooming at Shelby Farms Park and all along the roads.

Here are Allison's bouquets. Unfortunately, one of the cats jumped up to check them out on the coffee table and knocked over the zinnia bouquet, which sent water on Craig's wireless keyboard...not good!

The market is located near the Arcade Restaurant, one of the oldest in Memphis in continuous operation. Also, the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was killed and the Civil Rights Museum. Sometime when it is cooler weather, I would like to go to the museum, eat at the Arcade and then photograph the lights of Beale Street. I also want to go to the botanical gardens, maybe in the springtime. Have to always keep something on the burner and be making plans!

Spent Monday watching Jackson, so I just might have a few photos to share.....:-)
