I don’t want to “leek” a good secret….but this farmer’s market was fantastic!
Even though Isaac and I had no need to visit a farmer’s market today, I wanted to go. I found two in the Seattle area, and while I originally wanted to hit both, I knew that one would likely satisfy my needs.
At the West Seattle farmer’s market the shops offer a great selection and variety of veggies, fruits, breads, cheese, meats, and other food-related items. For example, there were several shops that offered rhubarb, which is something I’ve been on the lookout for, during the past few weeks. I saw one place and thought, oh, I’d better get some this is probably the only shop to have it anymore! but then I saw another, and another! It was like Christmas.
I plan on going back next Sunday (or possibly to a different FM on Tuesday…), so I have some rhubarb on hand for the Rhubarb Festival at the Columbia City Farmer’s Market on May 16th. And then I will go back again next month in preparation for Rhubarb Days in Sumner on June 13th and 14th. …I’m hoping the Rhubarb will still be producing by then.
I bought a loaf of beautiful delicious sourdough bread. I couldn’t resist it, it was calling to me. I bought it from Tall Grass Bakery‘s booth.
Yum! (Note to self: Order that King Arthur book already!)
And a few others:

I look forward to checking out other Puget Sound markets in the coming months. If anyone knows of a particularly awesome one (or ones), let me know!
