For the last few years we have made a point of not missing Concord’s vibrant ‘Market Days‘. So, 2019, was not going to be an exception. We had to be in Concord anyway (for I to pick-up some new gas permeable contact lenses) and we knew beforehand that the weather (unlike the previous day) was going to be amenable. And that was indeed the case.
We got there around 2:40pm. Parking was NOT an issue. We were able to park, at a meter, on South Main street just yards from the start of the blocked off section. That was good. There was no rain. Some dark clouds on and off. But, also some sun.
Everybody is so friendly and after the soaking they had on Thursday happy that the rain had been replaced by crowds. I hope they all did well. Not sure why we need 5 or 6 separate large tents all selling the same ‘South American’ artifacts. None of them are local. We did buy some stuff from one of them and I had a brief chat with the proprietor. He is from New York and drove up for this. He claims he also does Sandwich Fair. Not sure that they are all related but to I it would make sense just to have two tents. But, c’est la vie.
If you can please do try to make it.
Concord is vibrant. They really make an effort. Thank you.
This was at Concord Market Days yesterday. Happened to see it and was thrilled that my Canon EOS RP, with the 28-300mm Tamron all-in-one zoom, was fast enough to let me snap two pictures — because it was floating fast and furious.

This was so clever and her pieces so delicate, fascinating, captivating and attractively priced. Plus, she is from New Hampshire and, to boot, a graduate from Keene State College (which Devanee will be attending as of August).
I was blown away. Wow.
You have to check out her work. Visit her Website and Etsy store. You will THANKS me for telling you about her.
This young lady is going to go FAR.
The BEST THING I saw during 3.5 hours of strolling through Concord Market Day 2019. And just this made it worthwhile.
Wow, these Atoll hats are IMPRESSIVE! I kid you not. As good as their 11′ iSUP that I am getting very fond of.
Those who know me will attest that I typically shy away from apparel — T-shirts, hats, sweats — that endorse a company, product or service. It has to be very special to I before I will endorse anything by wearing ‘branded’ apparel.
It is going to be different with Atoll. I am going to be wearing these hats regularly over the Summer. Wait and see. I will post pictures as proof. Smile.
