Farmers Market
Bridgeport Conference Center

On Sunday (Nov 4) around noon, Judy and I left the boys with Grandma Shirley and headed to the Bridgeport Farmers Market off Jerry Dove Drive.  As we entered the facility we noticed that the hotel was having a brunch.  As we approached the seating area, we immediately recognized Justin Murphy who was a Gilmer County lad and a former student.  Justin worked in California and has moved back into this area.  Hugs were exchanged, of course!

Chef Dale Hawkins and his co-worker, Patty, were selling their produce from Fish Hawk Farms in Rock Cave.

They are such nice folks and always have quality products.

This sign below immediately caught my eye.  As you folks know, we have been searching for quality salt rising bread.  It has been a many-year endeavor.

WE FOUND IT.   Our search ends with this fine bread baker.  Joanne Tait and Mike are from Grafton.  Their bread was marvelous.  I had to call Joanna and congratulate her on a job well done!

The market is held in a conference room of the convention center.  The vendors have a variety of wares such as bird feeder gourds, art, jewelry, pottery, and various other items.

This young man was providing music for the enjoyment of the patrons.

We were impressed with the variety of goods offered.

Sarah and Jeff returned on Sunday around 8:30 with the new family member.  You will meet him tomorrow on the blog.
