April 4th has been circled in my planner for months! Not because of Easter weekend or any out of town visitors but because April 4th was the day the Farmer's Market re-opened for the season in Meridian! Not only that, but it was supposed to be a BIG event downtown called Earth's Bounty to kick off farmers market season. Rob and I loved going to the Palafox Market on Saturday mornings while we lived in Pensacola so I had my fingers crossed that we could continue that tradition here in Meridian.
The Meridian farmer's market was not huge but, as usual, made up for what it lacked in size in extremely friendly vendors. It was a cool morning but we grabbed mimosas/bloodys from a street vendor (only in Mississippi lol) and walked up and down, checking out all of the booths. Everyone from the sausage guys to Denise with her sweet treats were more than happy to strike up a friendly conversation. There is nothing I love more than friendly, welcoming people! We left with fresh tomatoes, zucchini, sausages, and gluten free cinnamon crumb cakes.
On the way home, we managed to snag a couple of pallet and immediately headed back to town to Lowe's to get supplies for a little project. It's still a work in progress but I will report back with the final results when we finish!
We had a low key but wonderfully relaxing Easter at home in Meridian. I made an Easter feast and we spent most of the day relaxing together before a busy week.
