As I mentioned, Town Square in downtown Grand Forks is starting to get busy for the summer. We went to the Town Square Farmer's Market for breakfast on our Anniversary and spent the morning listening to music, eating kuchen and drinking coffee. We got both a chokecherry and apple kuchen and split them, while sitting at tables listening to Megan Johnson. Megan has a voice reminiscent of Janis Joplin, and I really enjoyed the entertainment. I wish we had gotten a chance to go this last weekend as well to listen to Still Fighting It (Blog), but didn't get going early enough in the morning.
The kuchen was very good, I wanted just a little more tartness with the chokecherry, but the apple was perfect. The morning was fairly warm, but I needed a little pick-me-up so, I got a great cup of coffee from Porpoura, a fairly new coffee house in town.
In the far corner of Town Square, there is a play area for kids, and on the opposite side of the Town Square closer to the river they have a pony/horse ride corral set up.
It's really a little too early in the year for much in the way of produce, but there were a few baked goods vendors there and a Pride of Dakota products vendor. I managed to buy a loaf of banana bread, a loaf of pumpkin bread, and a bag of rhubarb to make a rhubarb cobbler.
There is also a variety of other vendors: jewelry, glass, soaps, quilts, etc.
I love it when they get the water going over the wheel, although this weekend they only had it working on one side.
And a picture of the quilts for Tamy:
