The market is amazing for several reasons, the first of which being that the crowd there will really stun you. It's like a whole new group of GBers come out of their posh homes and dress in their cutest outfits and gather for Wednesday market. It feels cultured and still home-y, with a wonderful dose of cool. There aren't many "cool" places in GB but do realize this is me talking, mom of 4, self proclaimed homebody and grandma come 8:30pm. I no longer attempt "cool" things but when I happen upon them AND in broad daylight (I seriously cannot operate efficiently past 9pm ... chalk it up to overuse) well, then I'm terribly happy. We went to flea markets in South Africa often as kids and I was absolutely crazy about them. Boy oh boy, we bought so many beautiful things at those markets. Anyyyywayyy, let's get back to this evening. It was beautiful. Really and truly. And the food trucks! There are loads of them this year and I have such a huge crush on food trucks. Reminds me of a trip to Austin … and they're always so yummy. What's up with that?
Here are just a few pictures (I'm too embarrassed to take pictures of people. You know, those street style photos. So you'll not see any of that unfortunately).

I did manage this "street style" pic! Quality.
And finally, on Saturday morning we took the fam to Art Street, downtown GB. It's an art market with artists that come from near and far (lots of states represented) to show and sell their creations. I love this one. Here are just a few pictures from that morning that I snapped with my phone.
