A SATURDAY IN FEBRUARY
A storm that could bring snow to an area where it is rare loomed out there somewhere as market morning came to Templeton which from Cambria is through Green Valley over the mountain.
Brisk, but sunny and better prices than elsewhere. The market is always a canvas.
We've shopped most of the farmer's markets in the north county and the Templeton market is the most laid back and easy going. Being around the town square makes it an immediate family and local event.
There is a good local produce marketplace nearby and it too, carries the ethos
of the area-local and sustainable.
Before the day was over, the promised snow fell, but by then we were over the mountain. Snow fell on the passes, and to the east, but near the cost we got a few hail pebbles.
Within a couple of hours, the sun was out and evidence of the winter storm was gone.
