Saturday to the Peterborough Market

Where are we today ? 
         Another good night for sleeping, windows open fresh breeze being drawn in with our fantastic fan. All is good slept late until almost 5:30 this morning and felt like a million bucks.
        Hot humid and pretty sticky by 8:30 this morning gonna be another awesome day. Temps about 85f feeling like about 94 f with the humidity but we have anice refreshing summer breeze we don't even feel like going for a swim.
        Went to Peterborough Farmer's market and the local weather thingies are saying its 90f over 100f, but hey thats in the city.
the first thing we did was stop to pick a a huge chunk
 of applewood smoked pork keilbosa only $10.00.
good crowds at the market so we made it a quick  tour
fresh picked cherries
         Lotsa buskers there playing their tunes making for a wonderful atmosphere.
local honey
picked up some new potatoes and sweet peas, oh so good
Hammered Dulcimer
more local fresh strawberries
these young kids are doing great on the Hula Hoops, too much fun
        Then a drive about Peterborough for a bit, could say we got lost. But we don't get lost just sometimes explore and take the scenic route. Ened up by the Peterbourgh lift lock. An engineering marvel we have not seen for a few year. You can read a bit about it HERE
the tunnel under the Peterborough Lift Lock
Peterborough Hydraulic lift lock, not busy right now
        A nice drive along the canal stopped at Giant Tiger discount store picked up a new pair of shorts for $5.00, like this store!
        Back home for a bite to eat for lunch, walkabout and chat with a few people then relax in the shade with a nice breeze and our books.
wonderful view
Pat, Norm and Billy Jean stopped by for Suzie's doggie fix
 and happy hour.
        Then we fire up our Weber Q and Fry Daddy, just have that awful craving for chicken wings and homemade fries again. So there add some celery, carrots, red pepper, hot sauces and dips we got to enjoy this feast right here at home on an awesome summer day.
love our wings and fries
      Now to work off supper outside for a couple hours, with a walkabout and book reading, until time to head inside to finish off the rest of our strawberry shortcake. It's a tough job but somebody has to do it! And we are loving every minute of it.
same picture as last night but still tastes awesome,
all gone until the next one.
        Thats was it for a fun saturday here just enjoying summertime, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Wow, y'all take cooking and eating to a "whole new level." It looks absolutely delicious!

  2. With all the food you keep eating I'm going to have to go on a diet. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. You better do that if you think you need it then.

  3. Saturday markets are usually a lot of fun. We need to take more time to visit them more often.

  4. That market looked wonderful. I've never seen cherries at one...and they really caught my attention.

    We also love sleeping with the windows open and especially if it's a little cool.

    1. Cherries in season here now and very plentiful, love them.

  5. Now that was a lot of strawberries! And your shortcake sure looks yummy?

    Have a great Sunday

    1. Yep it is and strawberries in season here now too, love fresh berries in season.

  6. What a great market, love the gluten free tent. Colin says that our local cherries are just starting to come out now.

    1. Three Gluten free family members so always looking for these products for them.
      Nothing quite like local cherries is there?


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
