An open air farm stand in East Gwillimbury

Many EG residents like to support local farmers. This is part of a stand set up on the side of the road.

I really like this wagon and the pumpkin/gourds are making me wish for an early fall.

Looks like someone is getting ready for fall and Halloween. Great composition, esp like the wheel.

What a gorgeous cart and such an original way of showing a market with those beautiful fall gourds. Love it.

This made me smile. Nostalgic and earthy fall memories.

see you there! said...

Roadside stands are becoming quite rare in our area, we stil know where one small one is and try to support it by buying something each time we pass by.

I'd shop there all the time.

Excellent. I am so glad the roadside market is still alive and well in a lot of rural areas. And of course the Farmers Markets in many towns too.
I even belong to a CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture) where a local farmer brings me local fruit and veggies each week. He grows as much as he can and buys the rest from organic farmers. It is tagged so I know where it comes from too.
Love the wagon best of all. MB

One of the best photos I've seen on the theme. I'm so dumb, I forgot all about the theme and was wondering why so many people were showing open air markets! Sheesh!

Kathy said...

Great carriage pics you have on both blogs today.

The pumpkin gourds looks quite vulnerable in light of the magnificent invention of the wheel. :)

What a great shot! This is a very original interpretation of the theme. I love that old wheel, especially the color.

Lucka said...

Amazing shot, beautiful colors.

This is postcard pretty, EG. I am enjoying my tour of so many market places... and your photo reminds me I have a butternut squash I need to eat in the refrigerator. :-)

Pumpkins and gourds already? You make me more anxious for fall! Lovely image!

I always love to see road side stands with fresh produce. This is such an attractive one it would catch the eye of people passing by. My state has a web site with lists of road side produce stands which I like. It also includes farmers markets but I thought it was so cool that even small road side stands are included and it tells what they sell what time of year.
