I'm getting super excited about the opening weekend of the Vancouver Farmers Market on March 19th! It's been so long since I have been there, that I almost feel like a newbie, butterflies and all! Besides trying to mentally prepare myself, I've also been trying to get ready by going through all of my display things like tables, risers, tent, signs and such.
I can at least make sure everything is clean and that it's all in working order, plus I'm trying to get rid of things I don't really need to lug around with me. The biggest challenge this year is going to be juggling the farmers market with caring for my 6 month old, because yes, he's going with me. In fact, the whole family is going to be joining me, including my husband and two older sons who are equally excited. Granted, my older boys are probably more excited about Esther Short Park than the actual farmers market, but I'll take what I can get!
I should specify that we will only be attending the Farmers Market on Saturdays this year, and only until August 13. We are trying to make sure we still have a family day on the weekend for the kids summer break! Also, if it looks like it's going to be a rainy miserable day, we probably won't be there, and I will update our calendar as such and post our intended absence on our Facebook page, so make sure you like our page!
Because we are all going to be attending the Farmers Market as a family, and it's going to be more "complicated" with the baby, I am trying to pare down our display as much as possible without detracting from it (if that's even possible). Basically at this point, the less I have to cart in the better!
The biggest issue I'm struggling with is deciding which scents to bring. To simplify things, we have decided to limit the number of scents that I will be bringing to the farmers market at any given time to around 24, which sounds like a lot, but we have around 110 scents to choose from right now. I want to bring a good variety so that I have a good mix of floral, fresh, food, fruity, and fun scents without having too many from each category. At the same time, I want to please everybody and I almost certainly will get asked for a scent that I have but did not bring... it's inevitable.
So I'm going to end this quick post with a question... What are your favorite Candeo Candle scents that you would like to see at the Vancouver Farmers Market and that you couldn't live without?
