Farmer's Market

by Paul Brett Johnson

Published by Orchard, 1997
32 pages
ISBN: 0-531-30014-5

Ages 4 - 7

On summer Saturdays, Laura and her family are up before sunrise to load their pick-up truck with the vegetables they will sell at the farmers' market in Lexington. It is still dark when they arrive at Vine Street to set up their stand and put out the vegetables: "We do it the same every week," she observes. As dawn breaks and customers start to file by, Laura helps out by keeping the vegetable baskets on display well stocked, as her brother and parents each have their own responsibilities with the stand. But just before noon, when things have started to slow down, mom tells her that she's earned some free time and Laura runs off to find her "Saturday friend," a girl her age whose mother has a flower stand. Detailed acrylic paintings realistically portray a busy farmers' market from a child's point of view. CCBC categories: Picture Books.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
