Sunday Morning Waterford Farmer's Market

 There are a LOT of Farmer's markets around here...Some are very big and have lots of wonderful things to look at, sample and buy. But one of my favorites is the Waterford farmer's market because of it's location. It is one of the smaller markets, but it is super friendly, you can bring your kids and dogs, and it really has everything you would need from a farmer's market. It is located near the Waterford Erie Canal lock right on the Hudson river.

 
 This man is one of my favorites there. He makes chili sauce just like my Uncle Rocky used to make, and he even looks a little like my Uncle did. I caught a whiff of his chili sauce a few weeks back when he took the lid off his pots to stir it, and it brought back so many memories...i've been going back ever since. He is coaching me on how to make an authentic French Canadian meat pie from his mother's old recipe. My Aunt Claire used to make them and i've been wanting to make one just like hers myself all these years. 
 There are the doors to the Lock behind the little tug boat...
 All kinds of boats were pulling up to the market to shop.
 This little robotic car was interacting with all the kids...My grandkids would have loved it!
It was such a lovely day...I want to come back here every week, because once Summer is gone, so is this little market...

Sounds like a happy day out. I like the canal with all the boats, I would love to do that.
