First Rule of Pie Club

My mother and I  took a walk from our August rental place to the Saturday Sag Harbor Farmers' market. We are enthusiastic patrons and we made numerous purchases of the usual goodies. 

At our final stop at one of the flower vendors, we noticed this  ONE and ONLY wonderful looking tomato pie. My mother, curious about the pie, proceeded to ask the vendor about the ingredients. At the same time, a woman was finishing her purchase, so we were waiting patiently when all of a sudden the patron said, "Give me that too"- pointing at the remaining pie. After leaving, the vendor said she only wanted that pie because we noticed it. 

We hope that this woman and others like her remember to bring their manners with them to the market and everywhere else.
