The Sandpoint, Idaho Farmers Market was beautiful this weekend – full of autumn beauty and abundance. The market, just about a one hour drive north of our Spokane, Washington area home, it’s always worth a visit because of the wonderful array of locally grown produce and handmade goods being sold. And it’s an all-around fun way to spend a weekend day.

I ran into Jennifer, selling her wonderful soaps.

Did you know that vegetables are fruits that are darker in color are the most nutritious?

What a perfect way to spend an Autumn weekend day.


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
