Farmers Market

Farmers Markets sprout up all over Denver in May; they are one of the signs that spring is on the way. There is wonderful fresh produce, locally produced jams and salsas, and the smell of wonderful baked goods. Vendors are helpful and friendly, proud of their wares and the customers are often out enjoying a beautiful sunny day. In an area near East High school a market emerges like clockwork on Sunday morning. I can ride my bike to it after church services. One Sunday I decided to sketch and photograph the various vendors and customers. Surprisingly to me this piece emerged almost like a pieces of folk art; it is a slice of Americana prevalent all over our country, bringing farmers and city folk together in a warm and friendly atmosphere.  $1,400
