Farmer Market Fresh

As I said in my previous post, I have so many awesome things to blog about and one of my favorites things from my trip was going to Farmers Markets.
First, was the market on Grandville Island in Vancouver, Canada. It ended up being one of the most beautiful stops on our trip. We took a ferry over to the island and the second we stepped on the dock we were hit with scents of fresh flowers and amazing produce. The island was like a crafters paradise with all these little unique artsy shops selling everything from handmade brooms to silk scarves. But of course my favorite was the market. It was full of the most fresh, colorful and gorgeous foods, accessories and flowers.

The broom store, we think Harry Potter got his brooms here
Second, was the famous market in Seattle, Washington. The market wasn't as big of a surprise because it's so well known among tourists, but that didn't take away from the awesomeness. Known for their fish, Pike's Market was bustling with people from all over the world. We were lucky enough to have family in Seattle, so we decided to make a fresh and delicious meal all with fresh ingredients from the market!
