Yes folks, another post about Chester, CT. I’ll tell you that this is the last post for a few weeks – at least. We are going to be heading to the Halloween Pumpkin Festival and Parade, but that’s not until October 29, so we have some time.
Okay, let’s go. A few weeks ago, Laura and I decided to head down to Chester, CT to see what their Sunday Market was all about. Now, by this point, you know I like Chester. You can read my other posts if you don’t. Knowing there was a Sunday Market was just too much for us to handle.
I think we picked a good day. It was sunny and warm. Of course Chester had the music going and people milling about. It’s so nice to see a town like this so alive. I am telling you…even though it seems like it’s no big deal, people just don’t do this anymore. Perhaps they did it thirty years ago, but they don’t anymore. It’s rare at the very least. That’s why we are so thrilled with the whole thing. And to think, it’s simply living.
There were goodies from all over. As you can see in the photos below, there were quite a few tents set up selling all sorts of stuff. Mainly produce and fruit from local farms. Many of Chester’s shops were open for business as well. It was a good chance to pop in and then pop back out of each one with not much of a commitment.
In the pictures below, you’ll also notice a few dogs. Yes, the Chester Sunday Market is open for dogs too. We stopped to pet a really nice Rhodesian Ridgeback. This dog was very friendly and had a funny habit of nibbling on the fingers that were petting him. He wasn’t biting, just nibbling. I thought it was the funniest thing and kept telling him that I was going to nibble back. Okay, let’s move off the dog subject.
Here are some photos of the market. They are pretty random, but I think they will give you a decent idea of what it’s about.
