Saturday we woke up to a perfect August morning and decided the best thing to do was take a walk around the Troy Farmer's Market. Before hitting the market, we stopped in at Spillin' the Beans to grab some iced coffees to sip on. Then our first stop was to see our friend Ashleigh of The Grey Birch. Her hoop embroidery is so great! That little campfire hoop would be perfect for a camp, cabin, or lake house in the Adirondacks.
She also has some great little pouches, handmade from vintage plaid flannel shirts.
After chatting with her, we walked through the market and browsed all of the local business and farm booths. The food booths were pretty tempting too, and we stopped to grab a fresh squeezed lemonade.
These raspberries and peaches looked too good to be true.
We were super stoked on the purchases we made and couldn't wait to get them home.
We grabbed this great tobacco strawberry pumpkin pillar candle from Collar City Candles.
We bought this watercolor print from The Grey Birch. It's a beautiful addition to our mantel.
It was so nice to be able to enjoy the warm, sunny morning, walk around our city, and meet some of the great local makers that make Troy a great place to live. Recently, an out of town blogger and photographer came and documented the 12 hours he spent in Troy. It's a great post that really illustrates why we love Troy, read it here.
