For the Locals

Here's something to do in March: go to the Green Valley Book Fair.

These are remainder books, and many of them. The book fair is north of Staunton. Be prepared to spend the day. And your money.

Since you're up that way, drive a little further north to the Dayton Farmer's Market. This is an Amish market full of lots of goodies - sitty around stuff, candy, fresh meats, all kinds of things. Definitely worth checking out while you're there.

If you're coming from Roanoke, either on the way up or on the way back, check out The Cheese Shop in Stuarts Draft (some of these goodies are available at the Dayton Farmer's Market, too). I go here to buy some of the best cinnamon you've ever tasted, along with other spices. The prices are unbeatable.

I plan to make this trip in either March or May. Enjoy!


  1. You are right on with your recommedation of The Cheese Shop. Their stuff is yummy, and yes the prices are outstading.

    By chance have you ever been to Lancaster, PA? You seem like the type of person who would like it there. I've been there many times and it's neat!

  2. Jen, I have never been to Lancaster, though it is on my list of places to visit. Unfortunately I don't travel a lot - we're pretty tied down with the farm. Somebody has to watch over the cows, you know.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
