Marietta Square

On our trip last weekend we made a stop at the farmer’s market in Marietta.

I always love going to Marietta Square.

I wish the weather had been better. The gray skies did not make for pretty pictures.

The market was filled with lots of home grown and home baked goodies.

I would have loved to take some of these home.



 The Strand theater was brought back to it’s old glory.

It’s so pretty inside. It’s been around since 1935.


In the center of the square is a beautiful fountain.

The kids can run around and play.

There are lots of benches to sit and read or just people watch. 

There is always something going on in the park.


So many gorgeous old homes are around the square.

Look at that deep wrap around porch!

I wish I had taken more shots. But it was starting to rain.

Do you know who lives in Marietta?

Aton Brown from The Food Network.

Not in that house though.


Also, have you seen the movie Zombieland? You should, it’s hilarious.

Anyway, there were some scenes shot in Marietta.

That evening we stopped in a coffee shop for some cappuccinos.

A friend, who’s more like a 4th son, works there and he made them special for us.

They were so good!


I hope everyone is have a relaxing weekend.

  1. That theater reminds me so much of an old timey theater I use to go to as a girl because they played kid movies on Saturday mornings.

    I want that house and I want to make pretty coffe toppings like a barista when I grow up!

    Looks like a great place.

    Btw, for some reason, I'm having a problem commenting on the giveaway post from my iPhone. I'll have to retry from the laptop tomorrow.

  2. I love picking up fresh flowers from the market - they're so much cheaper and last twice as long!

  7. I've not written this so I can muscle in on your wonderful giveaway but to say hello and to say what a beautiful place Marietta is. I am quite envious and Hubby would love one of those coffees.
