The Market Was Fun!

This morning my family and I ventured to The Market in McMinnville. It was our first time…and it was so much FUN and exceeded my expectations. The layout is visitor-friendly. While full of vendors and variety, it didn’t feel claustrophobic and cramped. It was easy to walk around with a 2 year old and several people had cute dogs with them on leashes. The food looked delicious (RibSlayer!) and I was tempted by several adorable art pieces. Oh! and the cutest purses by Janis Jewelry & Gifts. They have a shop in downtown Newberg (it looks like their website is under construction). From fresh farm produce to pastries and live crab, there was quite a variety of vendors.

There is a used book section with a huge bin of children’s books –25 cents each! We got 7 books, and while definitely older and well-worn, we will still enjoy them and you can’t beat 7 books for $1.75.

We meandered to the children’s activity station to make a Valentine’s Card where they provided my two-year old with a shirt to keep her clothes clean, neat papers, ribbon, embellishments, and paints to make a Valentine. It was a hit!

What a fun outing for a drizzly, gray Saturday morning. We will definitely return to The Market, and next time I’ll take photos of my own to post.
