Farmers Market

Summer in Reno is like winter in Yuma in that there are events all the time, (albeit the events here are typically done on a larger scale and draw more than just snowbirds -- even though there is no house made of lettuce.)

While some of the stuff isn't necessarily our cup of tea (aka, the Rodeo), we really enjoy the Sparks Hometowne Farmers Market. It runs every Thursday during the summer from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., which makes it very difficult for me to go with my work schedule, but we've managed to make a quick run for fruits and veggies on my break once or twice. Yesterday was the last one of the year (is summer really almost over?) and luckily I had the day off since I'm working Saturday. Other than fresh produce, the market has flowers, food vendors, live music and more.


We went with our friends Erin and Sandor, had some dinner, drank some beer, listened to the band, saw some rad mullets, bought some sweet white corn and peaches to take home, sat and visited for a while and had a really nice time.

We took this last photo for our friend Andrea, even though she probably already knows these state facts anyway:

Any pics of those rad mullets? Hahaha!

I wish - but he was too close to do it subtly! (Also he was wearing blue camouflage pants, which really completed the look.) I almost called you last weekend when I saw a mohawk-mullet at the Plumas County Fair. It doesn't get much better than that ;)

Hilarious! I love that you thought of me. And, the good news is...I did know the facts. I am not too far removed as a Nevadan! Phew. Thanks!

Um, Dre? When you get married you're only supposed to change your last name ...

Thanks Tammy. I was confused about that one.
