New to Market

I visited Seattle’s Pike Place Market today.  Pike Place Market

It sprawls over nine acres at the base of the city where Seattle dips it’s toe into Elliot Bay.  If you get there before eight in the morning, the usually crowded aisles are free to roam at your own pace while the vendors put finishing touches on their daily setup.Pike Place Market

New to market this week: fresh local asparagus, super-sweet strawberries, Ramps ready for choppingramps and fiddleheads.fiddlehead ferns on the cutting board - _MG_3575 

Spring lamb, shad roe Shad Roeand king crab King Crabare plentiful as well.

The coming and going of seasons are all well and good enough when looking out your window, The first of the pear blossoms!but to stroll along the edible bounty of spring into summer into fall brings every sense to attention.

Local farmer’s markets abound with local gifts, and most are just opening their doors this time of year.  Patronize them and they will continue to flourish, offering us all a deeper look into the nature of our surroundings and all things edible.Odd Ducks...Anhinga with fish
