February Farmers Market

Last Saturday was the monthly winter Farmers Market for February. We moved from the Grange hall in downtown Friday Harbor out to the fairgrounds as a chance to see if this might be a good place to move the market permanently. We are looking for a permanent home with a roof over our heads as we currently set up in a parking lot in town. We've been at the parking lot for years and it works pretty well, except for those days of torrential downpours when even though we have a canopy over us and the vegetables the rain drips off the edges and runs down our necks, etc. We lucked out with a sunny day and no wind. We were very bundled up but didn't get cold.

The picture shows a bit of what is available in this neck of the woods this time of year: winter squash of several kinds, leeks, Brussels sprouts, cabbages and various Asian greens. It was a very successful market and we only went home with a few squash.
