It’s October! I’m caught between enjoying the beauty and comfortable temperatures of the season and wondering where another year has gone.
Though Bailey’s is open year-round, a part of our vendor population has closed up shop and headed home until next spring. I’m still seeing a few tomatoes and some of the sweetest peaches I’ve ever tasted, but for the most part the fresh fruits and vegetables are done for the year.
Of course, since we’re open every day, you’ll still have a great time shopping at Bailey’s. Our artist vendor population continues to grow. Our most recent creative additions are handmade turquoise jewelry and some watercolors that perfectly capture South Carolina's beautiful countryside.
We’ll still have fresh eggs, herbs, wildflowers (Abner's top-secret ways keep the flowers coming), pies, breads, jams and preserves, and a baked potato cart that has become one of Monson’s most popular lunch attractions. A number of other local farmers and artists have also been in touch; we’re growing even during the slower times.
So, though the busy season has come to a close, we’re still plenty busy around here and we look forward to serving you, our friends and loyal Bailey’s customers.
