University District Farmer's Market

Well, The farmer's markets are back in full swing now that May is upon us.  I love this time of year!  The University District's market is year round but the vendors are a bit sparse during winter.  It's great seeing everyone's tents back up again now that it is warming up.  First stop was Belle Epicurean for some sweets.  I picked the chocolate liqueur mousse and  Don went with the Apple Brioche.  Their traditional French desserts are all so decadent.  I don't recall ever eating a treat from here that I didn't like.  

Seattle area organic farms were out selling starts.  This might just be the year that I break down and build a window box.  I am dying to have all of my favorite fresh herbs at home.  It's just not as fun walking by these beautiful stands when I don't have a garden to spoil.

Tulips, tulips, and more tulips.  All of the flowers stands were filled with them.  All for less the $10 a bunch.  

Fiddleheads from Foraged and Found Edibles!  This stand of mushrooms, berries and greens is full of great seasonal produce and beautiful presentation every time I see it.

I miss the tulips up there. And the strawberries and the Copper River Salmon. In fact, I'm hitting the two butchers in walking distance tout de suite to see if they happen to carry the delectable fish the few weeks it's in season.
