The Knoxville Farmers’ Market

Franci 18 Jun 2012 Being tourists Food Frugal fun

Today is our second day at the Hoyt reunion in Georgia. Since I’ve last blogged we’ve visited the Holders in Knoxville, and some friends in Atlanta. I hope to blog about that soon, but I need to catch up with sharing some of the things we did in Knoxville first!

We had a great time in Knoxville. One of the highlights of our time there (for me, at least!) was to visit the local farmers’ market. I had a blast taking photos of all the beautiful produce and the way it was all displayed.

On the Saturday morning, we girls (Aunt Marti, Hannah, Eva, myself and a couple of Hannah and Eva’s friends) went out for breakfast at The French Market, where we had crepes for breakfast. The café was really cute and the crepes were fantastic.

Here are some of the photos I took at the farmers’ market. Because they are a bit numerous, I made them smaller. If you want to see any of them bigger, just click on the picture.

After our time at the farmers’ market, we joined Uncle Ron, Ben and Marica and Esther at some fountains nearby where much fun was had by all getting nice and (cool! and) wet.

The fountains were followed by some drying off time at the playground across the road, where (most of) the adults had some fun playing too!

Well, that’s it for now. We’re about to have an after dinner hymn-sing soon. With around 55 family members here (and a few more to come!) I think it will be amazing.

The fresh produce looks amazing! Wish I had a nice farmer’s market around here - the kind that takes place outside.

Enjoy the hymn singing which is always great at Hoyt reunions … we’ve also enjoyed some wonderful Psalm/hymn singing on a couple of different occasions recently, at Dovedale church. That’s the only one of the 3 Reformed churches left standing at the moment, so folk from all three churches massed there for some joint occasions (a chamber choir concert; and a visit from the principal of the RTC). It’s wonderful to sing in a building with good acoustics again. :-)
