it is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I spent part of last Saturday a the Union Deport. The out-door European Market is bigger than ever this year. There is even a warming house. There is a lot of food and plenty to drink. Last weekend was the official tree lighting but don’t worry if you missed it because they leave the lights on.
There are train rides too and the annual holiday bake sale will be held this Saturday. For more details and times for events please see the Union Depot website.
My goal this weekend is to get to the indoor Saint Paul Farmer’s market , in the Market House building. The downtown Farmer’s market has had winter hours for as long as I can remember but the whole outside in the cold just wasn’t fun.
I should probably mention that downtown St. Paul is also a great place to live. I’ll be writing more about that next week.
