Farmer's Market Fail


I tend to mostly just stay at home during the weekends. It's very rare that I go outside at all, and if I do, it will probably be for a walk. This past Saturday however I made big plans to go downtown where there's this amazing and big Farmer's Market in September. Or so I thought...



I grabbed my bike and had a lovely trip downtown, the sun was shining and I was in good spirits. I was wearing my new vegetable dress from Poppy, excited about photographing this dress amongst heaps of veggies and fruits at this incredible market.


Upon arriving to the Farmer's Market I was nothing short of disappointed. I saw a total of five carrots, ten potatoes and one single pumpkin. It was my first time going to this Farmer's Market, but I had expected loads of colourful vegetables lining the stalls of the market, I imagined it would be fantastic and beautiful - what a let down. The Farmer's Market was packed with meat, fish and bread though... That's northern Sweden for you!



Anyway, I ended up photographing my lovely vegetable dress not amongst piles of vibrant veggies, but in a park that had just donned its autumn frock, so it turned out quite well in the end.

Belt: Asos (old)
Shoes: Ecco (here)

Is my imagined Farmer's Market a fantasy? Have you been to any cool Farmer's Markets? Or are they just in my imagination?




In other news, you can now find me on Facebook. I recently created a page for the blog and it's possibly the best way to keep updated with my posts and other stuff. So if you like, give me follow right here.


Much love!

  1. Sorry to hear about the rather disappointing farmer's market! That so strange that they didn't have many veggies! (That's mainly all I see at farmer's markets over here.) However, your new photo location is gorgeous! That little bridge is so picturesque, and I adore your dress! So pretty!

    1. Yeah, you would expect a Farmer's market to have veggies!! That's what a farmer's market is for isn't it! Maybe our farmer's market just had to prove that swedes like their meat and fish better.
      Thank you, I was pleasantly surprised by the park, and it was just next to the boring market, haha!
      Thank you, you're too sweet darling <3
      Much love

  2. Hey there! Oh Mona this dress is a dream. It suits you so well. I have to take a look at Poppy's homepage. I exactly know what you mean when you say you rarely go out at all. Your problem with the Farmer's market is totally understandable. Sometimes I think this is another consequence of capitalism. It is the same with Christmas markets. Between mulled wine and groceries there are weird shops which didn't even have anything to do with Christmas. Clothes, bags and everywhere are Minions... why??? To much supply I guess.
    What a pity but it seems that you cheered up in the park.
    I have to say it once more: I adore your outfit and your hair and everything about you :*
    Much love!

    1. Well hello lovely Christine! <3
      Oh thank you, I fell for the dress instantly, with it's quirky print and lovely bow I just knew I needed it. Poppy is pretty pricey, put you get good quality clothes, with that little bit of extra whimsy.
      Maybe you're right. Maybe it is capitalism. I definitely think it is about what people want to buy, supply and demand. Unfortunately the demand for veggies seem to be non-existent in my little town. hahaa.
      I did cheer up in the lovely park, it was so beautiful and the sun was shining :D
      Thank you so much sweetie. You are far too kind. I adore you!
      Much love

  3. These photos are so stunning Mona. The dress looks lovely on you too. Sorry the market wasn't do great. We have a small market on sundays that sell lovely veg and cheaply but it's pretty small, otherwise in the town they have a french market but I don't think I've seen veg there too mostly sweets! Although we both like those hehe!

  6. How lovely you look in this dress. The collar and golden bow detail are quite charming. I feel disappointed for you that the farmer's market fell short of what you were expecting. I am fortunate that where I live in Southern California, there is an abundance of such markets with loads of vegetables and fruits. I don't think I've seen any meats or fish, all the ones I've attended anyway. There might be one stall with breads. I suppose we are opposites in that matter!

    1. Oh thank you darling. The collar an bow was what made me fall in love with it. Yeah, well, you can't always get everything, we have a lot of other good things in my town, but the farmer's market is not one of them. Oh I would love to go to a market in SoCal. Lucky you!
      Haha we do live in quite different places.
