Outdoor markets often call us to join in as the weather turns for the better and colorful tents and booths emerge, filled with flowers, fruits, homemade goods, seasonal favorites, and what have you. I so enjoy the sounds. The sounds of smiles and exchanges, of the joining of groups of people, old friends, new friends, families, having a marvelous time. The scents of fresh, warm baking and buckets upon buckets of new blossoms. The sight of sun-kissed faces and shoulders, of hands being held and fingers pointing. From Palm Springs to Southern France I have been, and no matter where you go the festive joy of simply discovering is so evident. For you never know what might lie just around the corner... delicious, homemade treats to enjoy as you walk, fresh flowers for your kitchen or your new favorite scarf. What is your most favorite market find to date?
