Market Fresh

As the market season continues, more fresh vegetables and fruits become available to eager herbivores in the Puget Sound area. This week ushers in leafy green cabbage and crunchy broccoli and cauliflower, to the delight of those who love to stir fry. What's even better than buying fresh veggies is sampling them for free, especially when the free samples include sugar snap peas, snow peas, and English shelling peas. This munching opportunity—which occurs at the Lake City market Thursday, June 17, and the University District market Saturday, June 19—should be taken advantage of, because peas are now at their seasonal best! The opening of the Federal Way market on Saturday, June 19, should also be exciting, with an Elvis-style rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner, an impressive variety of locally grown foods, cooking demonstrations, gardening booths, crafts, and many more events and edibles!
