Each Saturday morning downtown Sarasota, Florida, hosts a farmer’s market encompassing several streets that have been blocked to traffic. Quite a few years ago, at the onset of this weekly market, there were vendors selling fruits, vegetables, nursery stock, homemade baked goods and some craft items. That was ‘then’. Now this early morning gathering has added many different vendors: fish mongers, sausage sandwiches, gourmet coffees,various herbs and spices for what ail you and any number of places where one could buy flowers for your loved one. I think I spotted a masseur — I could continue but you probably have seen this or one market similar to it. It has been years since I ventured to the market but this was a special day — there was to be a featured jazz band for the entire morning! It was there I captured the pictures of the man playing the flugelhorn along with the trumpeter. Then, as I retreated to my car with my camera, I spotted several street guitarists playing and singing to passerby’s for contributions. Caribbean sounds emanated from an alcove where one man was creating music from his twin steel drums. All the music served to create a festive mood for the morning throngs.
