Saturday Market Revisited


I stayed in town last weekend so I could attend the Edmonds' Saturday Market and buy raspberries.  I needed to make more jam.  I am off in a couple of weeks to visit my friends on Nantucket.  If I don't bring jam I suspect that my friend's husband won't be nearly so happy to see me.


There were lots of flowers.


And all sorts of beautiful, locally grown vegetables.


I bought a lot of veggies and made a roasted vegetable salad---beets, tomatoes, carrots, Walla Walla Sweet onions, fresh corn, garlic and fingerling potatoes, all roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Once the veggies had cooled off, I added a good splash of red wine vinegar, a couple of handfuls of chopped fresh basil and some croutons I made from a home baked baguette.


There was music, too, from several sources.  I like this fellow and his bluesy numbers.



I found plenty of fresh local raspberries, enough for two batches of jam.  I think my welcome will be insured!


To cap off an almost perfect food day, a friend dropped by with a Dungeness crab he had just pulled from the cold waters of Puget Sound.  My dinner was complete!


Thanks, Rune.  Your crab was delicious.
