I interrupt the Teton Series

Howdee all,

I interrupt the Teton series to bring you my Favorite Saturday market..

Eugene Saturday Market

Yesterday Jeff and I went to the Market…it has been three years.

I love this market.

There is an Entertainment stage…Eugene Skies and Sat market_20091003_009

They use stainless utensils at all the food vendors..no plastic utensils here.

After you use the utensil you bring it to the bins…where they go back and are washed.

  2. What a great spot! I'm so glad you took time to show this place. I'd go nuts there! Is it open year-round?

    It looks like a great model for other cities.

  5. Free competition time again, those wonderful people at blurb have given me 3 voucher worth £30 each to give away, to help promote their latest book competition in which you could win $3,000. The book competition ends on the 22/10 so to give the winners of the vouchers time to do their books this give away ends on Friday 9th.

    To enter you just need to follow one of my blogs and tell me your funniest pet, travel or family related story. If you already have a post on your blog just link to that in the comment and I will read it there.

    Why have I chosen those categories well they just happen to be the themes of the books for Blurbs competition, Pets, Travel or Families, so get your thinking caps on as this competition for the £30 vouchers ends Friday.

  10. Wow hopefully that will be there next year when we visit. I loved it and looks like it has so many great things to buy. I had to go read all your last post because I've been in the deep woods and had not outside connection... Come on over and see my mushrooms... Ever since you turned me on to them I notice them everywhere... LOL

    Have Fun & Travel Safe!
