Living Green Olympia: May 2010

This Weekend at Olympia's Farmer's Market

This weekend's visit to Olympia's Farmer's Market had so many goodies that I had to make two trips back out to my car!  I actually went to the market to get some more veggie plants for the garden, but got sidetracked a time or two on the way - not unusual for a market full of yummy, yummy things!

Asparagus at Olympia Farmer's Market

The asparagus from Eastern Washington was still looking so good that I NEEDED some of that....and a couple more apples....  And oh my - just look at the Walla Walla sweet onions that just came in!

And then the flowers reminded me that I really MUST have a few more things for my pots on the front walkway.

Plants galore at the market

I did manage to also get what I truly came for - several varieties of tomatoes, some cucumber plants, a couple zucchini plants - then had to run back again since I forgot the cilantro.  Gotta have cilantro so I can turn some of those tomatoes into salsa!

Farmer's Market music

As we got ready to leave the market, we also had to listen a bit to some toe-tapping music from the band on the market stage.

Smiley face cookie - yum!

And how could we think of leaving without getting Addy a "smiley face cookie"?  Oops that means I also had to get a mixed berry scone for me - LOL.

 

A very good visit to the Farmer's Market - can't wait to see what they will have next week!
