Newnan Market Days
Downtown Newnan sprung to life today with spring activities across the city!
Market Days returned to the square with artists, fundraisers, farmers, beekeepers and a new vendor turning out bags of hot, delicious mini-doughnuts with the aid of an impressive automated machine . . . gently turning those delicate puffs of golden goodness. . .I'm sorry, I drifted off!
Market Days is a chance to catch up with old friends, neighbors and meet new neighbors! I always enjoy the variety of goods and was relieved to see some of our favorites making their way back; Wally and Lynn Bachelor with their fragrant local honey and delicate spun honey- a must-have for proper Southern biscuits. (As a child I love to mix spun honey and butter for biscuits!)
I even took in a estate sell out of Smokey Road and scored heavily! When it comes to a great estate sale you must trust the force within and if you think you should've stopped. . . you probably should've. I scored two delicate decanters for the new batch of Limoncello and a brand new industrial food mill-perfect for sausage-making and fruit!
All in all, not a bad day!
