Wednesdays Where I Live...
On Wednesdays where I live there is a large farmers' market that covers the outer edges of a playground/square called Moltkeplatz and has an array of flowers, vegetables, meats, cheeses, pastries, fresh & smoked fish, eggs, homemade pasta, herbs, teas, and even a little traveling coffee shop with a small cafe where we had cafe latte with Zucchini lemon loaf - a slice is only 1- Euro and so we brought some home for later too. :) The local farmers come in with their wares and so everything is super fresh. There is even a lady on the corner who plays a Leierorgel which creates a nice atmosphere I think (it sounds a bit like an accordion and my grandparents in Rhode Island played accordion around me all of my life so I always think of them when I hear anything that sounds even remotely like an accordion). Here are a few impressions so you can see for yourself what my morning looked like today. This is the district where I am living so it's very convenient to have this market to visit each Wednesday.
The flow of the market is just lovely... everything is easy to access because it's a complete square, with flowers and plants being at each of the four points and then everything else peppered in between. The last photo shown above is an extension of the market, not the square itself. This area is mostly plants and flowers. I love all of the colors, I find so much inspiration at a farmers' market because it's very energetic and you see cute little children tugging at their mom for just one more cookie or grandma's out and about, and lots of dogs and so many pretty shapes and colors when at the fruit and veggie stands. And the flowers, oh my! I bought more today, so now I have three arrangements in my little apartment. I promise no more flowers this week! :) I'm been on such a total flower binge since I arrived -- I can't get enough!
Now I'm off to register here and take care of lots of legal paperwork so my day is full. I'm leaving you with more of my lovely guests to take good care of you today, so enjoy!
