Market Weekends.

The weather gods sure are shining on Seattle these days.  When I have long days of needing to get a lot of work done, they make it gloomy and grey so that I don’t mind sitting in my office and watching the misty rain come down outside my window.

And then as soon as Friday rolls around, they always seem to know that the weekend is here, and they blow the clouds away to reveal gorgeous mountains and sunshine, and temperatures that finally allow me to pull out my summer dresses!

Sunday was my idea of the perfect summer weather – glorious sunshine and 75 degrees with a light breeze.  Doesn’t get any better than that.  Sarah and I took advantage of the weather and headed out to the Ballard Farmer’s Market…

I have been getting recommendations to come to this market since before we even moved here, and I can’t believe it took me this long to finally do it! 

IMG_0559 (640x427)

Families, musicians, dogs, food trucks, produce, fresh flowers, and so SO much more!

IMG_0560 (640x427)

Gorgeous succulents…

IMG_0564 (427x640)

Every type of organic grain imaginable.

IMG_0565 (640x424)

Greens, greens, and more greens!

Any so many other fun specialty items.  I can’t wait to go back and try a little bit of everything.

If we weren’t getting ready to go out of town for the holiday weekend, I would have stocked up on a ton of fresh produce.  LOVE summer beets!

IMG_0570 (640x427)

One of my favorite things about Seattle is the amazing FLOWERS!!  I have never seen a city with such an abundance of colorful, gorgeous, and cheap flowers all year round. 

IMG_0575 (640x427)

Couldn’t resist picking up a bouquet for us to enjoy this week at home.

IMG_0578 (640x427)

Gorgeous blooming peonies.  Would you believe that this cost me TEN dollars?

IMG_0579 (640x427)

With our flowers in hand, we were hungry for lunch!  One of my favorite things about living here is how vegetarian friendly everything is – even food trucks at a farmer’s market!

IMG_0585 (426x640)

Apple sage vegan hot dog topped with grilled onions and peppers, dill relish, ketchup, and mustard on a grilled bun.

IMG_0589 (640x427)

Eaten on the curb in the sunshine.  It seriously does NOT get better than this.

IMG_0588 (426x640)

Oh wait, yes it does.  Washed down with an old-fashioned root beer that Sarah and I shared.

IMG_0592 (426x640)

After massive hot dog consumption, we headed home to get our gorgeous new blooms into water…

IMG_0593 (425x640)

Do you know that the entire reason our wedding was in May was because I knew I wanted a bouquet full of peonies?  They are by far my favorite flower, and only available here for a few short weeks a year.

IMG_0595 (640x427)

Peony season makes me very happy, and I’m excited to enjoy these all week long.

IMG_0597 (428x640)

Looking forward to many more market weekends this summer, and hoping the weather stays this beautiful for each and every one.

I thought of you and your favorite comfy maternity jeans when I saw J Brand had maternity jeans on sale on Rue La La today. I thought about getting a pair for days like today when I have a big lunch then have to sit at a desk all afternoon ;) Happy Shopping!

I think Farmer’s Markets are my favorite part of summer! I look forward to them all winter! Peonies are my absolute favorite flower – they’re so beautiful and smell heavenly! My mom grows tons of them in the yard so I always leave her house with huge bouquets when they’re in season! :)

Going to the Farmers’ Market is my favorite part of every weekend. I love it. Mine is not near as ‘big or fancy’ as yours, though. :)

Even when I travel, I make it a point to seek out the local farmers’ markets.

Peonies are gorgeous, but the smell – I can’t take it. My almost-MIL brought me a bouquet earlier this summer (from her yard) and they STUNK. Maybe it was just hers? I don’t know…
They didn’t last a couple of hours in my house, before I had to move them to the patio…
