buy local

I’m sure you’ve heard all of the talk and debate about how far our food travels, buying locally and supporting local farmers. I won’t pretend to be an expert, because I’m not. But I went to Pike Place Market on Sunday and purchased everything that I possibly could for our dinner that night. The market was bustling with tourists and locals alike.  Everyone was marveling at the vibrant produce and fresh seafood. I left with a bag full of groceries and a smile on my face.

While I don’t have the time or the money to ‘buy local” everyday, it was delicious and made me appreciate our dinner even more. This summer, I hope to check out the local Farmers Markets in Ballard, Fremont and Magnolia.   

Derek took a few pictures while we were there.

    There’s a market in West Seattle on Sundays also… and they’re going year round. They have great produce, flowers, and live plants… and usually music!

    From Kindra: Aunt Janae, I would LOVE it if you painted me a picture! You pick whichever one you feel most inspired by.
