I’ve updated the list of Portland/Vancouver area farmers markets as many are opening this weekend and next weekend.
It is still very early in the season. I’ve been going to the Vancouver Farmers Market the past month and buying last season’s root vegetables and fruit, plus some lettuce and plant starts. I’ve actually become addicted to buying a lovely bouquet of flowers for my table. It helped jump-start spring before my own bulbs bloomed.
I’ve missed the local lettuce tremendously, but the lettuce starts I bought four weeks ago are now producing enough for salads for me twice a week. And it is great to supplement that with more lettuce from the farmers markets.
