Sunshine and the Farmers' Market
What a lovely day it has been today!
I was up very early (more like not having been to sleep last night). I was out of the apartment by 7:00 a.m. and drove into Poulsbo to stop at Sluy's Bakery (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sluys-Poulsbo-Bakery/331792313564023) for a cup of coffee and a pecan roll.
It was still too early to go to the market, so I stopped in to Walmart for a few items and then headed to the Farmers' Market.
Though still a bit chilly in the shade yet, the market was buzzing today. With sunshine and a high of 65F (18C) degrees, one might think that it was summer in the Pacific Northwest!
I made several purchases: Two lamb shanks and a bag full of braising greens from one vendor; two bunches of French breakfast radishes at another; leeks and three apples from one more; and a pastry bar--Texas Pecan Pie Bar--at yet another.
Of course, there was also a cup of fresh, brewed coffee from a local roaster, and a sausage sandwich for lunch.
Our local farmers' markets anywhere I have lived are my favorite pastime on a Saturday morning.
It is to be another beautiful day tomorrow. I am meeting my daughter and her Dad for brunch in Tacoma to celebrate his birthday, which was on Thursday.
