Sundays are the farmers market in downtown Martinez. It is a small little market but has the requisite flower stand, vegetable stall and kettle corn dealer. I've been going down to this little market for the past several years and this year have noticed that it is busier and maybe a little bigger then usual. I wonder if this has to do with the economy and people deciding to stay closer to home and help support each other. I hope so because I like to see our market thrive and survive. Speaking of supporting the market I really didn't buy anything today except for some golden beets. I wanted some flowers but had spent all my money yesterday at the antique stores so I'll have to wait until next week.
