The sun is out, the flowers are in full bloom, and the veggies are in the ground. June, how I love all the possibilities you bring to summer. I’m especially excited to start wandering through my local farmers markets. Did you know there are ones to be found on week day evenings, as well as the standard weekend mornings? Some with even food trucks to share the food love, how awesome is that? Buying a weeks worth of fresh produce, wandering around meeting neighbors, and ending with supporting yet another local resource for dinner before calling it a night?! If you’re really lucky, you’ll end up listening to live music, children’s laughter, and a whole lot of happy go lucky chatter. That’s what I call a reason to celebrate the season!
Here’s a guide to some of my favorite “local” markets, including Seattle and the Eastside. If I don’t mention yours, please add to the comments below, TIA!
