|Upon entering the Market @ Franklin we immediately met Natalie who's natural bath, skincare and beauty line, Naturally Spellbound, is made with all organic products and essential oils. Natalie can be reached here.|
|The Market @ Franklin is held the last Sunday of every month in the historic Palais Theatre in Franklin, Huon Valley, Tasmania. This attractive venue may be rented for weddings, celebrations and other events.|
|As we moseyed along the rows of displays, this display caught our eye, especially after we were offered a sample.|

|After tasting the naturally "smoked" sea salt, we couldn't resist making a purchase from Smoked Salt Tasmania.|
Many have shared that they'd longed for the less hectic lifestyle of big city life to eventually relocate to Tasmania for a simpler, easy paced life on this remote island. Less than a two hour flight to Sydney and more to other big cities, many locals have found the move to Tasmania fulfilling in many ways.
|There were a few home grown vegetables left but we had all we needed. We arrived at the market around noon after we'd uploaded the day's post.|
|Cute, homemade little felt booties.|
|All the displays were set up beautifully and overall, prices were reasonable.|
|More items included in Julia's display.|
After viewing all the remaining displays, drooling over a few food offerings, we headed back outdoors where additional items were offered for sale. With too many photos for one day's post, we'll include the remaining photos in tomorrow's post.
|The homemade cupcakes looked delicious.|
Have a peaceful and yet meaningful day!
