This morning my mom and I took the almost hour drive down to Wayland, MA to go to the winter farmer’s market there. The reason I went today was because I knew that A Hundred Ravens was going to be there, but also because, farmer’s market. Those are always fun.
We saw lots of different things so here’s a short summary of the day in pictures.
And this is what I took home from the market:
My mom and I had a wonderful time while we were there. It was a little crowded and a little noisy and I had trouble dealing with everything, but we really enjoyed ourselves and we’re planning to go back in a few weeks.
On our way home we stopped at a place called “H-Mart” which is an Asian Market in Burlington, MA.. Now, we almost didn’t stop because we couldn’t find any parking but we got lucky and so in we went. It was crazy. In fact, just as crazy as the farmer’s market! The place was packed and it had food from places including, but not limited to, Taiwan, Korea, China, and Japan. The only way I could even guess at what some of it was, was that I could recognize the different languages on the packaging (though I can’t actually read any of them). We had a good time looking at everything. I didn’t get much, but I did get a few things.
Kevin had been looking for chopsticks for ages, and there we were in the market and viola! Chopsticks! I grabbed a few different packs to get. I also bought some Japanese Green Tea (loose leaf), a sugar bowl, a Sake holder, and my mom and I split a thing of mil-chocolate from Japan. Want to see? Here you go!
Overall, today was, as the post title suggests, a good day. Both my mom and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Knitting updates coming soon! Probably tomorrow when I’m not so tired from walking around all day!
