I am a member of the Willy Street Co-op in Madison. They host an annual meeting and party on the hottest day of the year! Last year, I had Mom to keep me company.
This year, I was on my own and got there early. The next photo is me in line with the same building as the top photo. I was right next to the tree just beyond the red van this year.
This many people were earlier birds than I was.
The next photo is what I brought along to work on while in line while sitting on Lava Buns. I did not realize until I started working on assembling that I brought an appropriately colored and themed project. An eggplant and dark purple colors are in the #WillyStreet logo. Co-op brings to mind fabulous produce in all gloriousness like what is printed on the patterned paper.
I had a nice conversation with a young man while in line. He works in education and seems well fitted for his job. He was hoping to score almond butter in his gift bag. I got espresso peanut butter #yumbutter so he might have gotten that variety too.
We enjoyed samples from many vendors including #nessalla #chocolateshoppeicecream #zanzibaryum #wiscopop #tierrafarm #albertsfreshproduce
Falafel with hummus, green salad and cookie rounded out the grazing.
Maybe next year it will be cool enough to stay and enjoy the music. I headed to my air conditioned coolness as quick as I could!
