Market Report for May 30th

Another good night at the Toledo Farmers Market, nine vendors had their tables full of items to sell. Red Earth Gardens was there with their roadside stand full of bedding plants. Darold had salad greens, kale, mustard, radishes, spinach and turnip greens. Chuck and Ginger had nut meats, rhubarb, spinach, onions, popcorn, asparagus, eggs, green onions, and bakery. Dawn had brownies, rosettes, jams, catnip, asparagus,rhubarb, radishes, and green onions. Sheryl had her cute ceramics, hand made towels, scrubbies and potholders. Shirley had rohlicky, kolaches, and bucnty. Those cute Nieland girls had eggs, plants, and good conversation. Karen had her soy candles, corn cob sachets, body spray and tea candles. Will and Thea had their soy candles, and melts. The north end of the market sure did smell good. I am sure I missed something, I always do. So you need to mark your calendars and come on out to the Toledo Farmers Market on Friday nights from 5-7 p.m. on the east side of the courthouse.

Sheryl Anderson has been selling her ceramics at the Toledo Farmers market for a couple of years now. I asked Sheryl how long she has had her business. Sheryl told me many years ago she became interested in ceramics. At first it was an outlet for stress from a full time job and raising two children. As her purchases became larger in quantity she though it would be easier to purchase her own kiln. Sheryl searched high and low and was able to find a used one. Now with a large quantity of items on hand she needed to find an outlet other than family. So,this entrepreneur started to sell at the Toledo Farmers Market and has so enjoyed meeting new customers and making new friends. The name of Sheryl's business is Bunny Traxx Ceramics. Notice the word Traxx is spelled with two xx's. Sheryl told me that she collects bunnies. Her hubby collects model trains. They share a building, Sheryl has the front of the building, and her hubby has the back. So that is how the name came about. Those bunnies have to cross the train traxx to get to the back of the building.
