We love all our local WA farmers markets!
All over America farmers are sharing the ‘fruits’ of their love of farming. We here in WA have the most amazing markets. The pacific northwest sun is finally showing itself and the temp is getting back to normal. People will flock together,ooh and aww over the wonderous bounty. For some this is a grand ritual event that takes place in their community all summer long. If they are lucky it even last well into fall. Some folks are very protective of their markets and will only shop at their farmers’ stall. This has been going on for generations and for some its a way of life. Those we salute and for all farmers we say you are all the best. For without farms and farmers we would have no food.
There is an annual contest for the faithful and the summer casual market goer to let their market and farmers’ know how much they are loved. The America’s Favorite Farmers Markets™ contest.
