    These guys aren’t exactly the stuffy violin players serenading you with romantic music in an Italian restaurant. They’re even more fun! They were the music on hand this past Saturday.

    Ok, Sarah has revealed her talented baking side to us. Sarah Leake officially unveiled her custom cake baking business. She’s toying with the name for it. We suggested Nelson Cake Company, other’s say call it Sarah’s. Regardless, this gal knows how to make some very pretty cakes. Look for more info on her custom cakes of all kinds. Not to worry, she’ll still be behind the counter at Basic Necessities in Nellysford each week from Tuesday through Friday. Whew, I was worried for a bit!

    Though not a beagle like ours, he’s certainly in the family. Lots of folks bring their dogs down to visit at the market. This was just one of them!

    Support all of the local farmers, merchants and growers by visiting the Farmer’s Market each Saturday through the entire summer. We’re talking very good produce and food, along with all kinds of neat crafts too!
