Many come to Perth for the pretty shops and tempting boutiques that line busy Gore Street. Some visit to gaze in awe at the old limestone buildings, and to travel back in time, to walk among these historic architectural treasures, dating back to the earliest settlers.
There are people who drive for miles from distant cities, to pick up a bottle or two of maple syrup, the liquid gold that helped to make the town a popular tourist destination. Along with all of these visitors, are those who come, some from nearby, and many from out of town, who seek the unique, the one-of-a-kind, something hand-crafted, and made with old-fashioned care, and these folks come to the Crystal Palace.
A quick photo-tour follows, showcasing some of the highlights of our day, and the incredible variety of the items available at this unique venue.
Tie-Dye is back! It was a colourful trend in the 1960s and 1970s, and has made a come-back. This vendor had a steady stream of customers, admiring these unique creations.
If you enjoy adding farm-fresh vegetables to your table, then the Farmer’s Market at the Crystal Palace is the place to be on a Saturday morning in Perth.
Mustard, fresh Garlic, Honey, and the ever-popular home-grown Maple products are fresh from the local farms.
With so many tasty selections, inside and out, and so many lovely hand-crafted pieces it’s difficult to decide!
Once you’ve chosen your treasures and treats, before you head home, spend a few moments strolling along the tranquil Tay River, and take in the peaceful beauty of this pretty spot.
Many thanks to the good folks at the Farmer’s Market at the Crystal Palace for hosting us today, and for those who stopped by to say ‘Hello’, and chat about some of the local history.
Until next time!
