To Market, To Market...

I dearly love going to farmer's markets, but above all I love going to the McMinnville Saturday Market. This is a year-'round event, and is hosted no matter the weather. It's also said the be the most beautiful market in the State, and I must agree. The market manager put down a rule that vendors may not bring plastic tables (unless they're covered), camping chairs, plastic coolers, vinyl banners... Instead they encourage re-using old materials and creativity. No one seems to mind this quirky rule, and the result is a breathtaking building. Live music is always being played, and there are smiling faces at every turn. Oh I love this market...

 Instead of trying to use hundreds of words to describe the place, I shall instead give you pictures. :) These are from both me (shocking, I know) and my sister.

So without further ado, I give you the Saturday Market...

Beautiful!! Seriously great photos and also what an incredible market! I am so jealous. Our market is great but plastic tables and vinyl banners are the standard I'm afraid. I'm sharing this post with all my friends.

Have you ever think about behind the banner how digital ads are served…? As the technology increases the way of advertising should also change. Now graphics, 3D effects and many more things are coming up. Through these things you can make your banner attractive. Sussexsigns Printed PVC Banners are coming under this. This looks different and you can use them in many places.
