Mardi Gras at Findlay Market

After breakfast at Tuckers, we met Maine’s happy family of three over at Findlay Market.  The Market was having a family-friendly Mardi Gras celebration – encouraging costumes & decorations. A crawfish boil and a line-up of cajun bands scheduled to play. And color, lots of color smattered about to photograph!

One of the things that always strikes me about Findlay is that people tend to come in groups – you meet a friend there for coffee & errands, you bring the kids down to teach about vegetables, your husband comes with you to help carry the groceries. Almost no one goes alone.

The market bustles with community, relationships, connections.  Hands being held. Lessons being shared.


Dogs of all kinds. This woman and dog took up a post in front of Krause’s right as we were first walking through the market.  They were still there when we left and in all of the passing-by we did, I never once saw them alone. It seems another friend had stopped to say hello every time I noticed. For what it’s worth, I fell head over heels with the turquoise porch at Krause’s.
