FARMER'S MARKET FAVORITES

Today was farmer's market sunday again!!! I always get so excited when it's FMS, It's THE perfect opportunity to do something different on a regular Sunday. Why not love it? You get to meet new people, hang out with friends and family, see people you haven't seen in a very long time, take colorful pictures, find out about new and innovative products, taste delicious food and just simply have a wonderful time. I was very much surprised to see how much more people there was this time than the one last month. My guess is that next time more people will visit and maybe eventually they're gonna have to change venues because more people are gonna want to be part of it, which is absolutely great. 

I have to make a confession, today it was sooooo insanely HOT that I was too lazy and didn't take that many pictures (that and the fact that I was carrying a huge plastic bag with the biggest carrots and onions you've ever seen in your whole entire life, forget about weight lifting tomorrow at the gym, I did a week's work today). However I did take some pictures of some of my favorite things at today's FM. I did see many other wonderful things but like I said, too lazy. 

So, here they are MY FARMER'S MARKET FAVORITE THINGS, enjoy!!! And hope you can join us next time (if you live in Guatemala of course). For more information on future farmers markets visit:

My friend Carmela with her heart shaped sunglasses, Hello Kitty t-shirt and neon pink Converse shoes. 




Colorful and tasty food.





Today I met this girl called Mandre who designs and manufactures this wonderful collection of shoes made out of Guatemalan textiles called ENGASHADA. I saw them and almost had a fit because I was stupid enough not to bring enough cash, SERIOUSLY!!! How stupid is that!!!

However I did ask Mandre if I could contact her and buy them later and she said OF COURSE!!!

If any of you are as interested as I am, here's her contact:

mabarquin@gmail.com




I also met another lovely girl named María Lucía Ramírez who studies industrial design and who also makes some pretty innovative and environmentally friendly shoes, this ones are made out of recycled sack material, like a sack of potatoes, or a sack of sugar, or a sack of... whatever... I hope I'm making myself understood, please do remember my first language is Spanish.

I thought they where pretty cool so if anyone is interested in her shoes this is her contact:

dcorate.accesorios@hotmail.com


Well, that's all folks!!! Again excuse my laziness, I promise next time I'll take more pictures.
