Starstruck in Stormville

We have deer, wild turkeys and buffalo, but no grocery store.  We have a maximum security prison and a (new) pizzeria; however, our "claim to fame" is a "flea market" at a small, retired airport on Saturdays and Sundays of holiday weekends.  It's big and has a mix of old (antiques and junk), new (out of date cosmetics and knock off clothing) and foodstuff (from farm grown spring garlic to fried oreos).  While it's fun to walk around and look at relics of my childhood that I have already thrown out, I go to buy veggies from a farmer who consistently sells the BEST fresh radishes, kale, beets and garlic! Such was my purpose late Saturday afternoon as the storm clouds rolled into Stormville (this really was the closest shopping location)!  I was hoping there would be some veggies left.  I was NOT in my wildest dreams expecting the HGTV crews, lights and cameras!  I can now assure you that those reality TV shows really do go out of their way to find out of the way places and capture small town America at its finest flea and garlic seeking moments!

Do you know what show they were filming? That would have been fun to witness. But the question remains, did you get all the best fresh vegetables you wanted?

I love small town places like this. Like Elsie, I bet it was fun to watch. Thanks for sharing this slice from your week. :)

They were filming for a new HGTV show about designers shopping for home decorating. I don't often watch that channel - but it was still pretty amazing to me!

What a fun surprise at the "local" flea market! I always wondered if these shows really go out on the road or if it's all staged. Now we know. Hope you got all sorts of good veggies!

How fun Anita! I liked to watch the HGTV shows when I was pregnant...haven't had much time to watch them since. So, look what the storm blew in right? Were you still able to get your veggies that you were searching for?
