Flashback and Foodie Friday ~Farmers Market Memories
Today was the day the Broadway Farmers Market opened in Downtown Tacoma. Luckily I am just a couple of blocks away, so I'll be spending most Thursday lunch hours perusing the market for the next few months! I didn't bring a camera today, but I have some older pics from 2007 that I am flashing back to for this Flashback Friday. Happy 20th Birthday Farmers Market!
You just can't beat the market for reasonable color bouquets. Today I saw them priced between $5-$15...they'd be $75-100 at most florists!
Its always hard to choose when you want to buy one
This one would be in the running though for sure...that red flower is crocosmia.
Of course there are fruits and veggies too! I think the middle ones are Pluots. Have you tried them? More Plummy than Apricotty
And neat architecture...it could be San Francisco!
The market is held in an area known as the Theater District and there are a couple of neat ones to check out along the way
Don't ya dig the old signs?
More flowers just because...
And some colorful "art"
And another masterpiece....
There's lots of good food. Today I had Peruvian Tamales. They were really good...filled with chicken and olives and who knows what else. In my flashback...I was loving the pierogis and cabbage rolls
Looks like I took home quite a nice little haul
My favorite image of the day...this sweet kitty relaxing in a garage just down the street from the market. The car is pretty cool too!
Hope you enjoyed the flashback. If you have a flashback of any kind...an old picture, memory, recipe, post..whatever, join me by placing your link below, then link back to me! You can borrow the Flashback Friday logo if you'd like.
I'm also joining in on Foodie Friday this week over at Designs by Gollum. There's always something pretty to see over there and I'm sure there will be lots of recipes shared too. Go check it out! I was thrilled to see that I won a wonderful little prize in one of Michael Lee's contests. I chose the Le Creuset bowls!
