When I'm up in Bellingham on a Saturday, I love to go to the farmer's market. Especially when the weather is nice and the market has extended to the outdoors. There are lots of local treasures - the fruits and vegetables are fresh and plentiful (the last time I went I was planning to make a soup - I was able to find the celery heart and parsnip I needed). There are many choices of prepared food as well. Whether you want coffee and a fresh baked good, bread with fruit and cheese, or a hot meal, you will have many delectable things to choose from. Then there are the performers, sometimes musicians or perhaps a juggler. There are also other products - soap, jewelry, ceramics, plants, etc. Shopping for fruits and vegetables is way more fun when you do it at the farmer's market. Plus you are getting fresh local food and supporting the locals.
