Washington Farmer's Markets - Where's your favorite?
I love my local farmers market in Ellensburg. Sure, it's not the biggest or most dazzling, but there is something truly special about connecting with locally grown food, and the people who share it. Washington state is riddled with farmers markets spanning all corners. As we slowly (painfully slow) move into our sun season, there is no better time to take advantage of "the fruits" of artisans, farmers, and crafters alike.
