    I had my first vacation day in the city of Rutland. Saturday, July 5, was supposed to be a work day for me. I am a self-employed barber here in Rutland, so I rarely take a Saturday off. Usually just for big events, weddings, funerals, graduations, etc.

    Took the long weekend because I had a close childhood friend up from Tennessee. Jeri, my wife, asked me to join her shopping at the farmers market in downtown Rutland, so I did. I had already known that the produce is good, but I never personally experienced the place before.

    We had a great time. It’s not just a place to buy stuff, it’s also a great social event. A vast variety of vendors offer many foods and other products. Because of my work schedule, I probably won’t be able to go to the market myself very often, but the day made me proud to be a lifelong Rutlander.
