Harvest fair and farmers' market in beautiful weather

Yesterday was the first Saturday in September, and time for the Maa elää harvest fair and farmers' market. The weather was beautiful and warm, bright sky and fresh air, not too hot. Sometimes the event has bad luck and only rain, no visitors.
 

Farmers and crafters had their stalls and tables along the pedestrian area in Järvenpää, our nearest town.


Our craft club had a stall there too like always.

 
The local craft centre was showing new trends of their classes. The oddest fashion seems to be the bags and other items made by crocheting can opening rings and yarn together.

 
Fascinating but strange:

 
I just love the Autumn colours. Soon I'll change my hanging flowerpots for something like this.
 

After a good walk around the ares and some shopping my company and I had a nice cooling raspberrry sorbet and soft icecream with espresso before returning home. Tomorrow I'll leave for a little holiday and come back in a week.
