The array of hand made crafts, soaps, jewelry, specialty foods, cheeses and fresh produce was wonderful to see, and the local folk were out in droves, even though the morning was quite chilly!
There was even an area where live music was being performed – giving the event a festive flair and causing people to slow down, relax, enjoy!
Fresh Produce ---of every kind!
((Pay Attention to the Water Tower above!))
Love the colors!
Gorgeous Bok Choy!
Every variety of potato you can think of – even sweet potatoes all grown here in the valley!
How about a sample of a variety of cheeses?
Jars of pickles, sauces and preserves -- too many to count!
After wandering the market, we had to head over to the “famous” Gilbert Water tower, and the pump house beneath it:
Gilbert Pump house!
The Pump house also served as a jail to contain “Rowdy Citizens” while they sobered up!
Ashley reflected in the floating ball statue!
She said “The sun is too bright to open my eyes!” So I took the picture anyway – such a cutie pie. I love her hugs and kisses and “I love you, Aunt Bonnie”. Sure gonna miss her!
There is a really cute down town area with “Old West” style facades lining the street ---
That’s about all there is to “Old Town” Gilbert – and that’s just they way I like my small towns. They feel like home!
Today is my “BUSY” day. The guild meeting is this morning, and then we have a half day Playing With Jacks workshop in the afternoon.
Bring it! I’m ready!
