Before join this party, I went to the farmers market in Trot and bought "Peach pie". I really like peach pie and tried it many shops. This shop's is better and filling are sour and sweet.
In the party, we experienced "Nagashi So-men". The noodle are placed in a along flume of bamboo across the length of her garden. The flume carries clear, cold water. As the So-men pass by, people pluck them out with their chopsticks and then dip them in a container of some seasoning. We are so exciting and it was so fun. I am Japanese but I have never done it before coming America because it is special event and we can only experience in summer festival or something like that. I was satisfied and enjoy eating and talking with other guests!

Next, I went to Crisan to buy bread. Today, large cake was showed in this shop. It was so lovely. Inside the cake is artificial but surface of the cake is real cream and sugar. Especially, flowers were so beautiful.

My Indian friend recommended me to go to "Karavalli(http://www.karavallilatham.com/index.htm)" for long time ago... I went to there to have dinner with my husband today. We went around 6:00pm, then there were many people in this restaurant. We ate "Chickpea Salad", "Karavalli Meat Sampler" and "Chicken Ammwala". As for the "Chickpea salad", it was good but amount of it was big for us, then we took half of them to our apartment. "Karavalli meat sampler" was really nice. We could taste 4 of different kinds of meat menus and all of them were spicy and tasty!! I like them. "Chicken Ammwala" was the first meal that I had a strange feeling during eating. There were some Chicken which was marinated with mango and some spices. So, this curry's taste was mixed sweet with spicy. It was so interesting for me and love them. Also, my husband liked this taste. I want to try other menu in this restaurant. Furthermore, my friend recommended me to try lunch buffet on Saturday and Sunday. I will try!!

In the morning, I had to ware Yukata (Japanese traditional kimono made by cotton) but it was sooo difficult to ware by myself. It took over 30 minutes. Also, it was difficult to drive waring Yukata. I arrived the church almost 9:45am and some members have already prepared and decorated our booth. half of our booth was Anime area and rest of them were game and Origami (Paper holding) area. In Anime area, 3 of our members brought some magazines and comics, and showed animation with PC. In the game area, we presented the game with chopsticks. As for the Origami area, we made some model and presented them for the people who visited our booth. Also, we taught how to make them.
All food and drinks were free in this event and I got soda, hot dog, pop corn, shaved ice and so on. It was fun event and I enjoyed very much.

I love farmers market because I can see some interesting fruits and vegetable. I think I should go to another farmers market because I always go to Troy's. But this market is attractive to me, so I cannot help going there.
