The new look at the Farmer's Market, Hamilton, Ontario.

Today was the opening of the market and since the weather had calmed down, I decided to venture out before the real storm hits.

The market had many people there,  some out of curiosity like me, and some who were there buying lots of food!  Business seemed brisk for the vendors..

It looks nice but I think the stalls are quite a bit smaller but I do like the fact that they have tables and chairs around for people to sit on.  I enjoy going to the market not only to buy my food but to also people watch so I am particularly glad to see the tables and chairs there.

I have to say, though, that the downstairs part is really very cold, with the doors opening from York Blvd..  I was planning to sit at Julia's coffee place and chat with her but it was just too cold, so I bought the coffee and carried it upstairs to one of the tables and sat and people watched.

I bumped into several people I know in the market which made it very pleasant for me!

I, personally, am glad to see all the vendors back.  I hope they make a go of it as they work hard

Will be inside for the next few days due to the storm which is starting tonight sometime. 

Thanks for reading my blog and have a good day!

I was there too!
I love the market like you do, for both its food and as a gathering place where we can meet friends and neighbours and get to know the vendors.
It was so nice to sit and chat with Julia again, though I agree the door makes it cold :-)
