The Pasco Farmer’s Market opened on Saturday, so my son and I headed down after his hilarious teeball picture session. I knew there wasn’t going to be a ton of produce variety, but I was itching to get out and shop the market again.
We found tons of greens, herbs and more asparagus than I could ever figure out what to do with in my lifetime. What made it really fun was that they had several local vendors selling eggs, beef, honey, crafts and several even had full vegetable starts. I had to talk myself out of a rhubarb plant. I wanted it so bad, but would have had to plant it in the bathtub since I’m out of room in the garden. We listened to a young musical ensemble and sampled Gypsy Girl Granola.
We couldn’t leave empty-handed, so I let my son pick out a cucumber from Schreiber & Sons. He was pretty proud of his loot. He even helped peel it when we got home, which made less work and a delicious salad for Mom for lunch.
Although we didn’t leave with much, we did leave with a promise of good, good things to come this spring and summer. Did anyone else head down to the market this weekend? They are open again Wednesday morning at 8 AM, pretty sure we’ll be there again.
Don’t miss out on my round-up of Tri-Cities farmer’s markets.
