Northwest Spring : Portland Farmer's Market

A sure sign of spring in the Northwest : last weekend the first spring farmer's markets opened in Portland! I found the market to be a feast for the eyes as well as for my tummy ;-) I wandered around the Hollywood area Farmer's Market and snapped these photos.

I am very thankful to live in a community where I have farmer's markets to shop at ---bought the best fresh fish, and local strawberries...and more. If you can't grow your own food, shop at a farmer's market!

Great pictures, Grandma Alaska.

I had so much fun going to the market with you!
