Farmer's Markets say a lot about the community.

I have the good fortune of living the the Pacific NW and when summer hits so do the farmer's markets all over Puget Sound. Of course we have the Pike Place Market all year long, but the smaller local ones are fabulous this time of year. Some of our rural farmers even have small stands that work on the honor system with fresh picked product.

Blogger's Note: The Fiercly Blue Sky in the first photo has been a rarity this Summer!  Being a maritime State, and this El Nino weather year, most every morning we wake up to a low-lying cloud cover called "on-shore flow" which takes many hours of work by the sun to burn off!

Hello Roseanne, Clark County is blessed with many excellent farms and farmers markets.  We may complain that the State's Growth Management Act makes for smaller lots for new homes and such however, once our local farms are gone they won't come back.  We believe much of our food should come from local sources - at least as best we can.  Thanks!

Those hanging baskets are beautiful, so are the fruit and vegetables.  I enjoy shopping and supporting our local farmers.

Hello John, The BiZi Farms store stays open for a goodly portion of the year, and they're also well known for their Autumn Pumpkin Patch and Hay Rides!

Diane, we picked up one of the $35 baskets -- and it is Huge!  Love it!

Paul, thes markets are great.  And yes, I do remember the time when cartoons were only on Saturday mornings!

Steve, you are like me -- gotta sample some here, some there,... yummmm.
