UDistrict Farmers Market 8/16/2005

There's lots of great organic produce, but don't miss the cheese vendor who sells 8 different flavors of Gouda or the half-sheets of rosemary focaccia. It's best to arrive when the market opens or shortly thereafter, because the best produce will go quickly and late comers will be left picking over second-rate berries and tomatoes. There are cooking demonstrations some Saturdays, but I've never found these to be especially compelling. Some vendors take debit/credit, many take WIC vouchers, and all take cash. more

As fresh as it gets 8/16/2005

If it grows in Washington State, you can find it here. This is the place to find incredibly fresh, local (grown in-state) tomatoes, berries, peppers, lettuce and nearly anything else that is farmed, foraged or fished. Careful shopping can yield produce, cheese, fish and baked goods that are organic and cheaper than their grocery store counterparts. It's a lively scene, with dozens of vendors, musicians and master gardeners to give you advice on growing your own. There are cooking demos most weeks as well. What a great way to watch spring turn to summer to fall: strawberries, then asparagus, then tomatoes, peppers, squash, mushrooms... more

Great neighborhood farmers market! 7/26/2005

The U district market has a little of everything...veggies, flowers, veggies, cheese, seafood, beef, pastries, nuts, berries, seedlings, and honey. It's a friendly and easy-to-get to market, with well-loved vendors who've been there for years. My favorites: Taylor Shellfish for fresh oysters and clams. They occasionally have geoducks and even rare olympica oysters. Also try their pre-made Oyster Stew Mix...good for instant oyster stew and great tossed with warm pasta and butter. Papa George Albacore. Best smoked alabacore in town! Garlic pepper is my favorite. Get a piece with belly meat for the most flavor. Port Madison Farm--best chevre I've ever had in my life. Really. They sell it in local grocery stores for a $2 markup, but it's at it's freshest and cheapest directly from the owner in this market. Peggi's organica. Peggi makes some strange, dense, indestructible loaves of organic bread. Surprisingly, they're really really good and they keep for a week on the counter. DEFINITELY try any pastries she's made, especially the lemon bars. La Pazanella Bakery. Get one of their tomato-topped "pizettes" and see if you can keep from eating the entire thing in one sitting. It's a perfect appetizer for any meal. Their rosemary crackers are fabulous (and cheaper here than in Whole Foods.) So much good stuff. Enjoy! more
