Non-conformists and hot, spicy, cheese bread

There are a few things that really make Madison unique. One is it's quirky people and non-conformist attitude. The other are things like the Farmers Market. But those two do not go together. If you are going to go to the Farmers Market, then please, please conform. Specifically... walk in a counter clockwise direction. That's the way it is. Always has been, always will be. Don't think you're special and can walk clockwise. Are some people that oblivious to their surroundings that they don't notice several thousand people all walking in the same direction? Yet they are going the other way.

Today was the first day of the Farmers Market. And a good one it was. A beautiful day, at least relative to what the forecast said it was supposed to be. Being early, the variety of produce was pretty limited. But there were numerous perennials, herbs, cheese (yum! cheese curds), honey and of course a plethora of baked goods. And got to enjoy one of my absolute favorites today. Stella's hot, spicy, cheese bread. As I approached Stella's the truck was just arriving. Wooo hooo, a fresh shipment of bread. Hot, and spicy. The cheese stretched like a fresh piece of silly putty. Mmmmmmmmmmm, tasty.
