Farmer’s Markets

by

One of the things I love the very most (trust me, you can verify this with my bearded man) is a farmers market.  And Seattle has amazing farmers markets.  From the amazing and iconic – and gigantic – year round “farmers market” at Pike Place Market to the quaint summer-only Saturday markets, its hard to visit any of the city’s neighborhoods in the summer time and not run smack into a white tent filled with locally-sourced produce, big bouquets of flowers and hand-churned ice cream*.

And how lucky am I considering myself that there is one – literally – right outside my front door.  The Cascade Farmers Market teed up its season in late June, and a bit over a month in, the market is sporting an amazing selection of cupcakes, berries, the prettiest $5 bunches of flowers that money can buy and make-your-own-ice-cream-sandwiches.  Yes, you read that correctly.  MAKE YOUR OWN.  I may or may not have yelped audibly when I saw the truck.  Top all that goodness and yumminess off with live music, live entertainment and a handful of Seattle’s most colorful vendors.  Thursdays through the rest of this summer are going to be fabulous.

Are you a farmers market fanatic?  Do you have one in your neighborhood?

*Other than the flowers and the ice cream sandwiches, the tip top of my favorites list at Cascade Farmer’s Market is Whidbey Island Ice Cream.  They have the best, slightly icy yet so creamy, peanut butter ice cream I’ve ever had.  Seriously.

    psssssst…if you buy me one of those flats of berries I’ll make something to bring into the office. 😉

    I love farmer’s markets and we tend to go to the Fremont Market almost every weekend. Even if we don’t buy anything, we love watching the hustle and bustle of the vendors and patrons and it reminds us of why we love the city so much.
