Market Friday downtown Milford

A post for Market Friday hosted by @dswigle, if you haven't followed her yet you should she is one of the kindest and most supportive people here on Steemit, a comment from her is like a ray of sunshine on your page.
This is the one tag and daily challenge that I always make a point of joining, and also look through the posts of others that join the challenge and seeing markets from all around the world.

For this weeks post, I am going to share a few shots of some shops in downtown Milford CT, starting with a shot of the Cafe Atantique, a charming little Cafe with a European feel, that we used to often pop into a couple of times a week, now that we both don't drink and my wife has to be careful what she eats we do not go there much at all, but I do pop into it at least once a month as the owner hosts a different local artist each month who can hang there art in the cafe and I always enjoy checking out the art each month.

Across the street from the cafe and you can see it behind the Cafe in the first shot is this office for Stacey Blake Realty, in a couple of months with luck I will need to make contact with a real estate agent soon to start preparations to seel our condo, not sure which one we will use at this stage

and finishing off a shot of a relatively new restaurant El Barrio, which was opened and took over from another small shop, it is owned by the same person that owns the Bistro Basque restaurant next door to this one, the food in both is excellent I must say

Those shops should pay you royalty for promoting them with such lovely pictures :) Just kidding. About the royalty, I mean. About the lovely pictures, I'm serious. Anyway, I am happy to announce that yesterday I submitted my maiden contribution to Market Friday, which I wouldn't have known if not for you. Thank you.

Thanks and you to have a great weekend ;)

Welcome to #marketfriday most definitely a wonderful place to support with cheerful greetings always from Denise.

Quaint little village with Whispers of delight in El Barrio inviting one in to enjoy a light meal and coffee.

@tipu curate

El Barrio and Bistro Basque are well worth visiting with a nice layout and great food

Always a pleasure to join Denises Market Friday

Upvoted 👌 (Mana: 5/10 - need recharge?)

Like to see small thriving local stores. 👍

Ohh yes me to sadly they are getting less and less

I love these photos, you always get very light colors and a lot of sharpness in the images ... Congratulations friend...


I'd go with the pink one for sure! :) Good luck with all of that. I know how stressful it can be trying to sell a home and find a new one! Fantastic shots of course!

Thanks and yeah moving can sure be stressful but I have done it so many times over the years I am hoping It won't be too stressful for us this time ;)

Have a great weekend

What a beautiful colorful and peaceful looking town 👍

Thanks I do love it here ;)

And i can see why 👍


Nice small shops, I love it!


Great shots @tattoodjay. That first one has a European flare to it. Thanks for sharing. Btw, could you explain what exactly is the Market Friday tag

Thanks and yes Market Friday is a weekly Challenge hosted by @dswigle, where she asks people to share shots of Markets they visit, its cool to see Markets from all around the world ;)

"Markets" which means any establishment doing a place of business. Whether it be a hotel, subway, or some grocery store ?? Just curious so I can start participating ;)

Denise who hosts it is pretty easy going, any way you want to interpret it is fin with her, I have streteched the term a few times myself lOL

All of the photos you show here and all photos in the Market Friday shows you do are so very colorful! How I wish I knew how to capture colors the way you do! They have a whimsical feel to all of them, the way great movie production cinematography are(such as Disney’s animated films)!
Happy a Friday, my friend @tattoodjay, and take care 🥰🌺🤙
