Who wants a Fried Pie? I'm partial to an Apricot Fried Pie. I've only had one once. At Canton's First Monday Trade Days Flea Market.
When I first learned of the existence of Fried Pies it sounded like a bad thing to me, like when I learned they fry turkeys here.
But, just like I learned with Fried Turkeys, Fried Pies are a good thing. And not greasy. Just tasty.
Today is the start of February's First Monday Trade Days in Canton. The Trade Days are held the 4 days before the First Monday of every month. The First Monday in February is February 2, which makes all of February's First Monday Trade Days take place in January, beginning today.
I have gone to Canton for the First Monday Trade Days 3 times. It is fun but exhausting. I've never seen the entire thing. It's just too big.
You can rent electric carts to haul yourself and your purchases. They are sort of like the electric carts you see at Super Wal-Mart. But there they are mainly used to haul super big people around the Super Wal-Mart. In Canton you see all sorts of people, of all sizes, driving around in the electric carts.
That's a pair of Canton shoppers tooling along at walking speed in electric carts in the photo on the right.
I've not been to Canton for a couple years. The last time was the First Monday Trade Days before Christmas. It was very crowded. I webpaged what I saw that day.
Maybe I'll head east this weekend and go to Canton.
