|9/4/13 Diamine Chocolate Brown ink, S & B sketchbook|
By 3:30 p.m., the line was long in front of Whidbey Island Ice Cream Company’s cart at Wallingford Farmers Market. Most of the vendor’s customers were under the age of 12. I overheard one mom in line saying to another that the “homemade ice cream bar – hand-dipped in chocolate” was a reward today because, after all, “it’s the first day of school.”
Meanwhile, over at the demo booth, chef Clara Moore of Knife For Hire Picnic Foods was cutting fresh corn from a cob.
