Jeanette and I have been to The Great South Amana Swap Meet & Farmer’s Market on a couple of Fridays this summer, selling Creating for a Cause cards and enjoying the atmosphere. There are musicians playing, people selling all kinds of things, food to eat there and produce to take home.
As a city dweller it’s grounding for me to get out and see the fields and animals along the way. The lovely barns are well taken care of and make me want to paint the colors in the old wood. We can sit in the shade, listen to bluegrass, and talk to interesting people from all over the country. I come back home at sunset feeling like I’ve truly experienced summer.
Update: The 2019 season of The Great South Amana Swap Meet & Farmer’s Market has ended. Keep an eye on the Iowa Theatre Artists Company to see what they’re up to next!
