I've been buying vegetable from the same farmer for decades at the market. He always has fresh tomatoes, corn and blueberries, all of which wind up on our supper table.
He also has the giant kind of kohlrabi, like they grow in the Czech Republic. I prefer the little ones, like my mom and dad grew.
Worrying about a stupid job interview, Mae and Grandma had to take Jade to the Flea Market that year.
And I missed seeing Jade make her first purchase, a plastic pony for her Barbie doll. Grandma gave her the money.

My favorite food tent is the one with the older couple and their 29 kinds of jam and jelly, all home-made.
I see lots of cool stuff to buy, things that remind me of my Grandma and Mom. But there's novel stuff too, like the pelts and the genuine bear rug.
Every year we go to the Boulder Junction Flea Market. We used to go with Mom and Dad. Now we take our kids.
There's plenty of fishing lures, fish cleaning knives and other fishing related gear.
But there's also soy candles, kitchen gadgets, stained glass, and other domestica.
In addition to all this, the library offers a free book to all the kids who show up. (The Flea Market is held in the library parking lot.) Goodwill also holds a rummage sale and a strawberry social in the library building. You really don't want to miss the Flea Market!
