Fall at the Farmers Market

Welcome to the 54th week of the History and Home Link Party, it’s good to have you here.  The weather here in South Carolina has been absolutely gorgeous with cool temps and low humidity.  I hope it’s lovely where you are too, no matter what season you’re in there in your part of the world.  

On a recent visit to the State Farmers Market, I decided to take the camera along and get in some photography practice.  For all you vintage-lovers, have no fear, I do have something vintage for you coming up.

A farmers market is a great place to get colorful shots with your camera.  There were purple grapes and eggplant, red tomatoes, yellow squash, green peppers, orange pumpkins, flowers of every color…  

I really liked the sunlight coming through these jars of honey.  If our friend hadn’t just given us a big jar of honey from his own hives I would have had to take some home!

What do you think of this arbor?  Isn’t it fantastic?  I’ll take one for my front yard, please ๐Ÿ™‚ I just happened to catch this little girl with her red ribbon walking through it. She makes me think of Goldilocks walking into an enchanted garden.  

I’ve been watching Once Upon a Time…can you tell?

There were pumpkins and gourds of every size, shape, and color.  The stacked totems are super cute!  They had a couple of massive pumpkins that were around $80 and 75 pounds each.  You’d need a whole team just to load and unload them, but they sure were amazing.

And the mums!  Hundreds and hundreds of them.  Here in South Carolina, we can plant mums in the ground and they will bloom in fall and spring, as long as you cut them to the ground after the blooms fade.  I have some red ones in my front yard that have been there for about 5 years and they’re still going strong.

Now for a vintage fix.  This old travel trailer has been converted to an ice cream truck and given a fabulous makeover.  My favorite color!  You can’t even buy a 5th wheel this small anymore, they’re all enormous now and you need a big truck to tow them.  I like this old, cozy kind.

One vendor had this Halloween display set up.  Believe it or not, I actually know a man who looks like this guy, only much less creepy.  I mean the one on the right, not on the left!

I took about 100 more photos – ready to see them all?  Just kidding!  I’m squirreling away the others, because I might do something special with them, but I’ll leave you with this lovey veiny pumpkin that I really wish I’d bought.

  6. Is there more than one State Farmer’s Market? I visited one in Greenville a few weeks ago. Anyhoo, thank you for hosting Dawn. I’ve linked up some velvet pumpkins and they are made from oldish velvet from the thrift store. I hope that counts because it is definitely junkin’! Blessings to you dear lady,

    1. I think maybe there’s a network of “state” farmers markets, like they’re all approved and licensed by the state or something like that… I’m not sure, but I guess since this one’s in the state capital they call it that? Hope you’re liking Greenville, its so pretty there. Loved your velvet pumpkins by the way. Oh and anything home-related fits right into History & Home so don’t worry about it being vintage ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care Patti – -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin
