Amish Farmer's Auction

I was invited to join a friend to attend the Amish Farmer's Market this week. Oh my stars~ was I ever wishing I had brought my car. I am going to have to go back. I am trying to get my Brian to take a vacation day.The auction is held in Jamesport, Missouri every Tuesday and Friday~ at 10:00 AM. 

Many businesses and small shop owners attend for items to resell including some of our local Farmer's Market vendors. However it is open to the public.

The first half of the Auction is produce such as strawberries, gooseberries, onions, rhubarb.......etc.  Everything goes in large amounts~ so you must share it~give it away ~ or resell. My friend's mom ended up with five large bags of sweet onions but planned on giving them away. It was so much fun. I seen many groups of friends buying to split~ what a fun idea.

 I plan on taking my husband back with an empty vehicle with  room to load up. These cute little Amish guys help load your treasures with a smile. Such sweet kids!
 There were flowers of every kind~ baskets as you can see~ bedding plants~ rose bushes~ vegetable plants ~strawberry pants~you name it....... they had it. 
 The hanging baskets were sold in groups of 15. Some went for $6.00, $5.00 and even $ 3.00 each. Now these were huge baskets much like you would find at a nursery not like a department store. They were healthy and huge ~just beautiful.
 I am ready to go back~ anyone want to go?
