Yesterday The Girl and I were in Mt. Vernon for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The Bellingham Farmers Market wasn’t to far away so we decided to stop by and check it out.
Mary from Hammerhead Coffee Roasters left a message on facebook page letting me know she was excited about opening day at the market so The Girl and I set out to find her. And we did! Hi Mary! It was nice to meet you in person.
As soon as we took this picture people started swarming Mary’s booth so we went and checked out some of the other vendors while Mary served up some freshly brewed coffee.
Check out this succulent wreath. What a beauty! I need to make one of these! I have a wire wreath in the garage so maybe I’ll try and whip one up with some leftover succulants from the Sedum and Succulent Living Wall Planter I made last week.
These succulents were so tempting. I wanted to snatch them all up.
The Girl and I dropped $1o on a gigantic loaf of bread to enjoy with tonight’s dinner — Beef Stew. I’ll show you the picture of it tomorrow.
More local, fresh produce.
There is not doubt about it, farmers markets rule! There is always something new and exciting happening at the market and you can’t beat the fresh produce, funky arts and crafts and cool vendors who stand outside in all sorts of weather selling their wares. I love them!
