A morning at Fulton Street Farmers Market

It was a picture perfect day in Grand Rapids yesterday -- mid 80's, sunny with a slight breeze. My wife and I took advantage of the day and took our youngest child, Francesca, to the Fulton Street Farmers Market. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning.

I bought a focaccio from this vendor. Ten minutes in the oven, a little virgin olive oil and we were set for a light lunch.
