My Photography - Farmer's Market Event
June 18, 2017 5:19pm CST
My first farmer's marker event that I planned myself was this past Friday. We thought it was going to be canceled because of rain and thunderstorms. We got lucky though and it only rained from 10:57 am to 12 pm. When I got to the farmer's market the owners informed me that they almost didn't set up because of the rain either but decided to anyway. The instructor showed up and I helped her set up and hook her speaker up to the generator. The first event was line dancing class. They did 5 or 6 songs to dance too. Most of the people that showed up were people who were members of the YMCA but as long as people were there is all that matters. It definitely made a lot of people stop and wonder what we were doing and more people stopped and bought some produce. There was a good turnout for the first event and I hope to be able to do more before my internship is over since it is what I am supposed to be doing anyway.

I love farmer's markets! And it was pretty cool that you set up an activity at the market to draw in more people! I hope all your future endeavors are very successful. And of course, rain is no fun to deal with at all, but is a constant nuisance whenever you are planning outdoor events.
