Farmer's Market 5/6/17

Today was the first day of summer hours at the Beaverton Farmer's Market.  That means on Saturdays, the market is now open from 8:00 am - 1:30 pm.  I thought it was a great time to check out the spring produce.  I also heard that there would be some early strawberries so of course I couldn't pass that up!

There were beautiful displays of the spring bounty - onions, leeks, radishes, greens, and rhubarb. 

One of my favorite spring finds are these delicious and gorgeous fresh asparagus spears from Alex Farm in Wapato, WA.  I always buy them when they're offered.  These delicious spears were just picked fresh from the Yakima Valley.    

My search was a success today as I found the organic strawberries from Denison Farms from Corvallis, OR.  Denison managed to outsmart mother nature by growing these beauties under covers.  Most other farms are about 2-3 weeks behind their growing season due to the cold and WET winter we've had this year.

Sooooo gorgeous! I'm anticipating the summer market when we go to France (Provence) next month. The last time we were there, we came home with a bunch of Cavaillon melons - they were divine!
