Cleveland

 This area of Cleveland has been run down for years but I think they are now on the upswing.  After leaving the market, we explored the neighborhood because we noticed some changes.

 We saw this right beside the market.  Click to read about it.

 They even have a farm stand to sell what they grow.  It was quite impressive.

 Just across from the market on the other side, we found streets with the cutest houses which have been rehabbed.

 Most had lovely gardens.

 We saw lots of new shops and restaurants too.  It is wonderful and exciting to see such a previously depressed area become energized again.

It looks like this is going to be a hot area to live in.  It is right by all the major highways and you can walk to just about everything you need.

 But please Cleveland, lose the politically incorrect Indian image!  It just has to go. 

 Back in the car, we headed out to the country.

 And found a farm stand selling apple cider slurpees which made everyone very happy.  They were so good.

 The mountains are ready to burst out in fabulous Fall colors.

 Back home, we poured through our market swag.  Our candy apple made it back with only a little wrapper damage.

 Pickled eggs in new flavors.

 Dichotomy popcorn.  It is a mixture of caramel and cheese.

 Lots of bacon, some of which is maple bacon.

 Lots of sausages for sauerkraut which will be made soon.

Huntsman and Buttermilk Blue which is the best blue cheese ever.

We made another stop on our way home which I will show you tomorrow.
