Weekend Recap: Farmer’s Market and James River Winery

Who would have thought we’d have such warm weather in December? In Richmond it got up to the mid-70s this weekend, which means spending time outside!

Saturday morning we began the day by walking to the St. Stephen’s Farmer’s Market.

Marlee was excited that she got to come too!

It’s a little over a mile from our house, so we got lots of steps in. When we got there Craig and Marlee stayed outside because Marlee gets nervous with new places and new people. The market moves inside for the winter, so this was my first time going inside.

I went to several different tables and ended up getting sweet potatoes, apples, kale, sausage, eggs, and gizzards (for Marlee of course). I love eating local and it’s great having a farmer’s market so close to us!

After the farmer’s market we walked to a restaurant nearby, The Grill. I got scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage, and an english muffin (cheese and english muffin being treats for me). Craig got a sandwich with mac and cheese as a side (his favorite and something we never eat at home). Marlee was exhausted by this point so just laid down or sat next to us the whole time. And then we walked home. A successful morning!

That afternoon we wanted to do something outside to enjoy the weather. I’ve been dying to go on a hike but need to wait until my knee and hip start feeling a bit better. So we settled on a winery (no complaints here). We have a couple in Richmond, one of which is James River Cellars Winery. Neither of us had been before so we went there with a couple friends (and Marlee of course). It’s in Hanover so just a short drive away. The house was super cute where they do tastings and sell the wine. We got a couple glasses while we were there and a couple bottles to take home!

And we caught a sunset on the way out!

Did anyone else spend time outside this weekend?
