August at the Farmer's Market is an embarrassment of riches. There is no way to take advantage of it all. I could have taken a ton more pictures, (and maybe even some of them could have been in focus) but my arms were full.
Next I wandered across the street to Zingerman's to get an iced coffee. The camera slipped and I took a picture of the street.
I wonder each time I cross it - it has lasted over 120 years and they have repaved the the pavement streets in town dozens and dozens of times. Hmmmmmm. It's a bit bumpy, but it sure is lovely.
It was extra crowded this morning - even for an August Market morning. There is a little event going on in town. Seriously, Ann Arbor might be the most cosmopolitan of mid-size Midwestern cities.
The hubbub started yesterday and it will go on for ….. who knows…..
I wish I could have gotten you a picture of the "tent/bar" they put up. It's larger than some universities.
The rest of these photos come via our local online newspaper. The roads are blocked off to the stadium and into downtown. Great for pedestrians - but not so great for lazy, would-be photographers.
Main street? No - it's something called a football pitch I think.
This is another pitch I believe. There have been some snarky comments about it. Honestly, I have no idea what any of this is about.
This was the band that played downtown last night. In 21 years of living in this house through a multitude of Michigan football games and Art Fairs - we have never "heard" the bands before. Our house is exactly 1 mile away from this stage. We heard it last night. Thank you Flint Eastwood for the bedtime serenade.
Are we going? No. Will we watch on tv? I have no idea, but I sure hope all the local businesses are appreciative. What will I be doing? Some baking first of all. I scored cherries, blackberries, and blueberries at the market. Then I'll be working on Zip Code.
