Dance Information

Vancouver, WA has a lovely Weekend Farmer's Market, but you have to get there early on Saturday to get the hydroponic lettuce. 1st couple practically run over each other getting ready for the market (bars 1-4), travel to the market (bars 5-8), and wander among the stalls looking for the best prices, the best produce, and the beautiful lettuce (bars 9-24). They got there in time to get the last one, and celebrate with a circle round and back!

Tune: Any Good Jig
