Goat Herding Attire

Let’s imagine you travel to Canada. It’s cold. It’s somewhat rural, at least in this case, so what do you do? Check out Goats on Roof at the Old Country Market of course! And yes, it’s Goats On Roof, not Goats On A Roof though I’m not sure why. The goats seemed a little camera shy but I can promise you this place is quite quaint!

Apparently it started out as a fruit stand and slowly morphed into a full on market. The original owners were from Norway, where many hillside homes have sod extending onto the roof; Itching for a little slice of home they decided to include that in their design. Legend has it that after noting how tall the grass had become, and maybe a few glasses of wine, they borrowed some goats to “mow” it. That was over 30 years ago and the goats have made their home there each spring – fall.

What does one wear to an old country market? Well, since my evening gown was at the cleaners I went with denim, plaid, stripes and ridding boots; opting for cute classics. A leather jacket and fun accessories topped things off during our day of fun. We really did enjoy ourselves! It was like one stop shopping and really reminded me more of a Pier One that has food…. and goat’s. heh heh.

Afterwards we made our way to an English pub for dinner and drinks where I was a big dork and ordered a spinach salad. Mr. T laughed at me but I swear it was really good!!! I made a deal with myself because I was dreaming of the chocolate we’d bought at the market. If you make it up to Coombs, BC stop by the Old Country  Those goats are good salesmen. Just saying 😉

XOXO
