Farmers Market








Not a favorable weather day last Saturday for the opening of this year's Port Townsend Farmers Market, but folks turned out in droves. Part of the northwest psyche, I reckon, that inclement weather just doesn't matter when it's time for getting out to market. I will be posting about the market often through the season. Much to cover.

75 and sunny here, but I bet there's no better farmer's market wares! I think I see someone familiar in one of those shots....hmmmmm, who could it be?

The produce and the flowers (Oh! the flowers!) look amazing! I wish I had been there to see the dance around the Maypole!

A May pole. What fun!! Haven't seen one of those is a long time. Cool!

The first thing I noticed upon visiting your blog was the people at the Farmers Market wearing hats! I suddenly felt cold thinking of our delayed Minnesota Spring as well. I like your pictures, especially of the Victorian days you had there. Very cool. I would love to see all the outfits if I ws there!

Oh, don't the fresh greens look good! I have farm delivery and weekly markets now too, so I also will have more shots to come over the season. I'm looking forward to seeing yours as well.

Trivia time from "Louis la Vache": The font used in the "Port Townsend Farmers Market" sign is Optima, designed by the great German calligrapher and font designer, Hermann Zapf. His wife ["Louis" thinks her name is/was Gundrend (sp?)] also designed fonts. Among Hermann Zapf's other famous fonts are Palatino (named for the hill in Rome), Zapf Chancery and for Apple Computer, Zapf "Dingbats".

Here endeth the trivia of "Louis".
