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.
