Today would have been the 2020 start of the Methow Valley Farmer’s Market. I’m really missing it! Selling in person is so much more fun for me than selling online. I love being in town early, sipping hot coffee while I chit chat with the other artists and farmers, as we all set up our tables and tents. It’s cold when we first arrive, then the sun slowly makes its way above the hills and we can start to take off layers as the customers start to stroll by around 9. We quickly shuffle over to the produce and food to see what delicious treats we can score. Sometimes Willy makes a fire, and you can hear the low roar of the flame and crackle of the kettle corn popping. Friends come by to chat, puppies are snuggled, stories shared, smiles had. It’s a subtle feeling of connection, the rumblings of community, the good feeling of selling our work and meeting the person who’s buying it. The satisfied feeling of packing up your table with hard-earned money in your pocket, and a Saturday afternoon left open to enjoy with friends and family. Today would have been the first day of the market, and I’m sitting at home missing my people 💗💗💗. Next week I may try to do an online “virtual farmers market,” so stay tuned! And don’t forget the kettle corn 🌽💗☀️. #goodmemories #whentheworldwassafe #potterslife #coronacancellations #alonetogether #methowvalley #methowvalleyfarmersmarket #twisp #twispwa #twispartist #pottery #ceramics (at Twisp, Washington)
