Farmers Market Season is Upon Us Kitsap FolkApril 3rd, 2009 by adice
After a season of mostly flown-in or frozen foods, I’m ready for a little freshness. I’ve been dreaming of heirloom tomatoes, strawberries ripe from the vine, really anything that I don’t have to open a factory-sealed plastic bag to get.
Kitsap County’s first market of the year opens Sunday in Port Gamble.
The early pickings may be a little sparse with the somewhat cold and wet start to the season, but it’s a start nevertheless. Check our site Monday (or buy a paper) for a story by Brynn Grimley on what local market organizers have to say about this year’s season.
For now, I’ve started compiling a <a href=”http://pugetsoundblogs.com/foodlife/farmers-markets/”>searchable map/database of local markets</a>, including some in Seattle and Tacoma. You can find it to the right under the “More Stuff” heading. I’m going to try to make it out to all the markets in Kitsap this year to meet our local food growers and producers, so expect updates, photos and more info in the database as the season progresses.
