Celebrating Fourth of July at the Farmers Market

Fourth of July Cheese Cow

Fourth of July Cheese Cow

Does cheese sell better at the Fourth of July Farmers’ Market if it’s promoted by a flag draped cow?

Fire Cracker Popcorn

And does popcorn sell better if it’s red, white and blue in honor of the Fourth of July?

Red, White and Blue Cookies

Red, White and Blue Cookies

  11. That firecracker popcorn looks good. Cherry, blueberry, and vanilla… hmm… that might taste delicious. Well, now that July 4th is over, we’re sliding towards Christmas. LOL
