Sorry for such a late "What'd I Miss?" post for May 10th. We've been very busy with the 2009 season launch of the Madrona Farmers Market, which returned this past Friday, May 15th, and the Wallingford Farmers Market, which returns this coming Wednesday, May 20th. Check out each market's new blogs.
May 10th was another warm, sunny Sunday, brightened even more so by market mom, Eiko Vojkovich (left, above). We have been assured that her husband, George (right, above), actually loaded that truck for Eiko in honor of Mom's Day.
Summer Run Ranch, Empire Ice Cream and Oxbow Farm all returned to Ballard Farmers Market this week. With them, we saw beautiful tomato plants, ice cream flavored with bacon and hazelnuts, pea vines, purple sprouting broccoli and more.
So don't you dare miss another week of the Ballard Farmers Market, or you could miss out on Five Acre Farm's gargantuan heads of lettuce -- what we like to think of as the lettuce that ate Manhattan.
