Bingo and the Saturday Farmers Market

Our little foster dog Bingo is in a trial placement with a very nice couple who have a Mini Aussie about the same age.  They seem to get on well together.  If that continues Bingo may have found his furever home. 
We will miss that little scamp but the cats here are celebrating his exit.  The farmer's market was the ticket!  We made him a vest that said "Adopt me" and handed out cards...wow, what great responses we got.

We expect many phone calls and hope to have some other homes to fall back on just in case this one does not work out.  And we know there is a 6 year old Mini Aussie listed on Craigslist so we can direct folks to that dog as well.

We love going to the local farmers market for so many reasons...

Not only is it a great place to find a home for Bingo, it is a fun place to meet other dogs.

Shop for wonderful home made goodies...
This vendor makes creams and lotions from local honey.

Here is our favorite jam and jelly maker, her fruit combinations are Delicious!

Fresh organic vegetables are just coming in, more and more each week.

Plenty of pretty flowers and plants for sale.

Good stuff to eat, I especially like to cruise the ground for droppings!
Salmon Burgers and Reindeer dogs are the best!!!

Mama likes the Taco Truck!

And wine tasting today!  What a treat for mama, I myself am not really fond of spirits.

Fresh caught seafood, Yummy!!!

And locally grown meats free of hormones, antibiotics and grass fed.  If you're gonna eat meat, this is the good stuff.  We are gonna have a pork roast tonight.

They even have live music!  Ryker approved!
This is just a sampling of all the fun things at the market on Saturday close to our house.  Each week it just gets bigger and better!



  1. I'm happy for Bingo!! We'll keep our paws crossed that it continues to work out in his new home! I know what you mean about the cats celebrating--Our dogs have done the same thing more than once when we placed one of our fosters too!

    I also love the farmers market! Anywhere you live, they are lots of fun to go to, and my favorite is always the produce and the flowers, but it would be hard to have those same favorites at this one--Everything looks great!! I'm glad you had a good time and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. woo Hoo for Bingo. farmers Markets are the best. I love going there with MOM.

  3. We love the farmer's market, too! Although it was too hot for any dogs to go this week. Mom and Dad went early and got their fresh breads and cheese. When we go, though, so many people fuss over us and want to chat that it's just fantastic. Mom answers a lot of questions about Greyhounds and we sure hope that it makes a few people want to adopt!


  4. Looks like there's lots of great variety at your Farmers market. So Sandy, what is your favourite flavour of jam?:) And what does the lady charge for a jar that size? I'm always interested in what flavours other 'jammers' have, and what they charge.

    Good job with Bingo, the vest was a great idea. Hope it all works out for him.
    All three dogs are coming to the farmers market with us tomorrow. One of our customers requested we bring them, she calls them 'The three musketeers'. She always buys them treats from the vendor next to us.

  5. Hello Ryker,,,Hooray for Bingo and we send prayers that it works out well. It appears that you really had a full day at the Farmer's Market. I'll bet you were tired when you got home,,,but it's always worth it if you had a good time.

  6. so true!
    YAY BINGO! :)
    Awesome pictures, the farmers market sounds like a wonderful place to be! and the last bit, so so so true.

  7. RYKER....
