Sunday, September 30, 2012, dawned dull and rainy and the rain only got worse as the day wore on. However, that didn’t stop hardy Islanders from making their way to downtown Charlottetown to visit the annual “Farm Day in the City”. Local farmers brought their bountiful produce into the City and joined crafters, artists, and musicians from across the province in PEI’s largest outdoor market. For the Foodie, this was a mecca because it provided the opportunity to buy produce and flowers fresh picked from Island farms.
Here are some photographs from this year’s Farm Day in the City, part of the Fall Flavours Culinary Festival.

September 30th was also the “Run for the Cure” event in the City so this vendor dressed his scarecrow in the signature pink.
Love the color of these plum tomatoes and the way the rain glistened on them. They are now in the form of homemade tomato soup!
There were even some llamas, goats, and miniature ponies on hand to delight crowds, too!
Local musicians entertained shoppers throughout the day.
Love these creative and colorful scarecrows that, no doubt, kept the notorious crows of Charlottetown away from the market!
Local artisans also displayed and sold their crafts at the market, as well.
