17th Century meets 21st Century at Staunton Martin’s Food Market

I was checking out at Martin’s Food Market in Staunton Saturday when I happened to look down one of the aisles when the 17th Century met the 21st Century. The Frontier Culture Museum ladies took a step out of history to pick up a few comfort items. Just imagine the reaction of historical characters of that day if they saw all the easily accessible luxury foods available today … and the variety! Historical interpreters Sally Landes, the lady of the English manor at the museum, and Eryn Landry didn’t even see as I pulled out my iPhone and snapped their pictures. It was a photo op too good to pass up.
