market days

On Sunday I am selling granola in my first farmer's market! I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I keep thinking my recipes aren't good enough, and that I'm drying it out, etc. Good thing I have John around to encourage me!

We spent some time today putting the bags together. I couldn't find a bag option that I was happy with, so I decided to make my own.



I cut out strips of wax paper and sewed up the edges. John filled the bags for me and handed them back over. I folded the edge down and sewed them shut. Moonpie stamped all the tags for me. My creative friend Lynsey came up with the idea of using old cereal boxes for the labels. I love the way they turned out! Thanks Lynsey, you ol' smarty pants!




If you are going to be in our area this weekend, and are so inclined, stop by Market Days out at Home Sweet Farm on Sunday from 2pm-4pm. You'll see our beautiful wild flowers and get the chance to support local farmers from all around the area. Also, I wouldn't mind a seeing a friendly face or two!

p.s.- speaking of wild flowers, would you just look at my girl...sigh...

How exciting! Your bags look wonderful. What a pretty presentation. I wish we could come out there and buy some of your granola and experience a market day, but I have to teach that day.
