Flashback Friday ~Farmers Market Season in Review

This week's flashback is a look back at this season's Broadway Farmers Market in Tacoma. This was my last week to be able to visit it since I'll be gone next Thursday on the finale. Here's what it looked like in the Spring! Just look at those fresh green leaves :-)

Rhubarb, onions and greens were mostly all that was available veggie wise.

My favorite Crepe stand, Paprika was back! Love the crepes and the lady that runs it is so friendly and cheeful. She does catering too!

Dr. Terry was there with his pies

This may have been the day I brought Randy a piece of rhubarb

And the flowers...well they were very springy too!

As spring moved into summer I discovered the Bacon Forever booth with all of their goodies

Starring none other than...BACON! My favorite was this. Do not turn your nose up at this ladies and gentlemen. This is a seriously good apple pie...

Leaves were definitely in full summer swing

It was a busy summer so I apparently didn't have time to take many at the market! But I made a point of taking a few at yesterdays market to round out the season.

The bouquets had definitely taken on a fall flavor

How cute are these pumpkin arrangements. All you Martha Stewarts out there get hoppin' and make one of these.

Still tons of gorgeous dahlias

Veggie stands were decked on in fall gear - also known as dried corn stalks.

Sweet potatoes, concord grapes and fresh apples....mmmmm

I love to see all of the furry friends that come to the market each week.

I enjoyed my lunch (Indian shishkabobs) in this little park. I love the trompe l'oeil at the far end.

I'll miss the market in the winter months but it does give me something to look forward to! I'm so lucky to have this market just a long block from my office.

If anyone has a flashback they'd like to share please add it here.

Looks like a fun place to stroll...those flowers arranged in the pumpkins are gorgeous and the price is to my liking, too!
Have a great weekend, Suzy.

What a great market. So much to look at, so much to inspire. So much to buy!

Suzy, I truly enjoyed the transition from spring to fall at the farmers market! Their prices on the bouquets are very reasonable. I am certainly going to miss our farmers markets, but I heard that several vendors are taking their goods to the indoor market which is great news.

It looks like you have a beautiful market, Suzy. Ours is done too and I will really miss it over the winter. I'm spoiled by all the fresh produce.
