Adventure Saturday: Bradenton Farmers’ Market

Bradenton Farmers’ Market is located in downtown Bradenton on Old Main Street. We hadn’t ventured down here yet. It’s a charming vintage business district that reminds me of small towns in Oregon. Very comfy, and less flash than downtown Sarasota. Main Street is lined with restaurants, so there weren’t a whole lot of food booths. Disappointing, as I love farmer market fare.

This week’s event was supplemented by the Art Slam. I think the performance art must start in the evening, as the booths we saw were hands-on demonstrations–great for kids.

We left just as the jazz band started playing, much to our relief. The singer had a great set of pipes, but, eh, jazz.

Adventure Sunday: Dinosaur World

We decided to take a little road trip today, heading east, then north to Lakeland. We didn’t stop much. It was a beautiful day for driving. As we were leaving Lakeland and headed into Plant City, we saw a sign we could not resist: Dinosaur World.

We arrived 45 minutes from closing, so we marched through, snapping photos like mad. We had a blast.
