A Trip to the Market

Graz has a great little farmers' market open mornings where farmers from around the area bring their self-produced goods into the city. Most of it is "bio" (pronounced bee-oh), or what we would call organic, and a lot of it is cheaper here than at the grocery stores. It's quite a visual and culinary delight.

Lots of people getting goods:

Styria's big seller: pumpkin seed oil:

These cheeses were stinkin' it up

Fresh lettuces and herbs:

And always some beauty blooms:

We also walked around the Dom Kirche (main cathedral of Graz):

and then Art spotted a Vespa he liked

then we laughed at some really quite large blow-up Mozartkugels
Big Mozartkugels

and I thought I had seen an oversized postcard before, but not like these on display in the main square
Big Postcards

and on the way back home, I had to take a quick peek into the Marimekko store to check out their bold, colorful fabric collection

Lovin Marimekko fabs. I am getting a sewing machine for Christmas. I can't wait! By the time you get back, I should be an expert and will be able to sew us both new wardrobes.
