I had a good chuckle last Saturday at the Aurora Farmers Market & Artisan Fair again. Yes again, because I wrote about the dogs in the Aurora Farmers Market in the past. Who let the dogs out? There were so many dogs last weekend that I couldn’t keep up photographing them and I couldn’t help to mention them again. I always said many times that Town of Aurora is abundant in dental and veterinary clinics. I don’t know if they go hand in hand, but we all need a dentist and every dog needs a vet.

By the way I got a buzz that there were available water dishes for the dogs to drink from, around five of them. And if you couldn’t find them you could ask for help from any of the people wearing fluorescent yellow jackets.
It was a great day for the market last weekend. Weather co-operated, not super hot and not super cold, just right and no rain. Looks like most vendor places were filled up and our favorite kernel popcorn guys were back again. They were also back with an automated popcorn machine that uses much less oil to make the popcorn.

Always lots of food to eat and I am always amazed with the lineup at Gabriel’s booth. I also noticed something else – there were two big buses parked on Mosley Street near the Town Park. Looks like we might have had out of town visitors. Two big coaches filled with tourists. I must say it was kind of crowded that day and it is always good to see that. Hope they got to see other attractions in Aurora on that day and not just Aurora Farmers Market.
No music at the band-shell? Or if there was I missed it. So I got to write about Town of Aurora Councillors and Mayor sometimes hanging out around at the market and that day I couldn’t find anyone. Oh well I probably missed them too.
