HOT DOG! It's Pepper Place Market Time!


Keera sporting her PPM cap!

Come Saturday, I'll be a very happy camper. That's the day the Pepper Place Market cranks back up for a new extended calendar. It's been a long winter and I'm ready to get a cup of coffee from O'Kafe's booth and park myself at a table, listen to some fine live music and snap away.

Today, a little preview. I've been secretly stashing PPDs (Pepper Place Dogs) for the past two years, so I thought I'd let these cute pooches be the stars today. For you Alabama readers, the market is on 2nd Avenue South and open every Saturday from 7:00am - 12:00. Come and support our Alabama farmers and craftsmen, see cooking and gardening demonstrations, listen to some terrific Alabama musicans and eat some good food!


Elvis brought his human along.

What can I say, Teddy's all ears.

Lovely dogs! Great!

Beautiful shots! A good idea...I have not done a series of dogs. Can't wait for our market to open, but it won't be for awhile up here.

That first one looks like someone I know...I'd love to see the person who put that hat on her head.

And a handsom lot they are, too. I knew Elvis was alive.

Cute dog photos even though I'm not much of a dog fan personally. However, my "Eagan Dog series" seems to be popular on my CDP blog.
Bon weekend mon amie

Oh they are all so cute! My folks first dog was like Teddy. I am sorry we never met.

Just love Pepper Place. Have written an article about it on Squidoo. If you care to visit find it here: Pepper Place Saturday Market in Birmingham. My photos were taken with an iPhone, so they are not nearly as wonderful as yours.

Virginia said...

Mickie,
Great article and your photos are as well. I often wonder why I lug my big camera around when folks are taking such good photos with a phone!!!

PS I cracked up at your remark about keeping the kids on a short leash. Well that's the truth!

We have a chihuahua next door named Elvis too! Funny how these little dogs have such big shoes to fill!
