Auburn Market - Saturday Snapshots

Every Sunday during the summer, my little town of Auburn, Washington, hosts a farmers' market. It's a small set-up--only a couple dozen vendors--but my husband and I have bought some good produce, beautiful flowers, and delicious balsamic vinegar there. Here are a few photos I took in August. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

Peaches, nectarines, and other delicious fruits

A large variety of vinegars and oils from
A Taste of Eden, Chehalis, WA

Frou-frou fashion

The market is set up at the commuter train terminal.
I thought it was strange that the band's name was "Trainwreck."

Oh nice market! I love markets and when in Europe see some great stalls. We don't do it as well here as a rule.

I'm glad Texas has a state holiday! AND... I grew up in Washington (by the way, your statehood day is November 11th. I looked it up. LOL ) I have a sister in law who lives in Auburn. I'm going to have to do to the market next time I visit her!

What fun!. We have a small farmer's market here too. I have never been. I must try to go next season.

The market is held on Sundays, from June through mid-September. I think you'll enjoy it.

Seattle's Pike Place Market compares to the amazing markets I've seen in Europe. But our little market in Auburn definitely does not compare. Still, it's fun.

I like to go to the Auburn market just to support our local farmers and artisans. There's also a market in nearby Kent. It's on Saturdays.

You photos are so vivid, Sandra. The fruits and veggies look delicious. Isn't this a beautiful time of year? I am trying to include more vegetables in our diet. My daughter loves greens, so the other night I made a soup and tossed in a few leaves. She loved it.

I love going to our historic Farmer's market here in Houston. It's nothing like fresh vegetables pulled right off the shelves/bushels and the pickings are plenty.

Have fun!

I'm glad you enjoyed my photos. I prefer getting fruits and veggies from local farms when possible.

We bought some of the peaches, and they were yummy.

What a great Farmers' Market! I love the variety of products you have in yours...we usually have a few things, but I don't recall any jewelry. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I do love a market too. This looks wonderful- I love stone fruit season.
