Among our recent Greatest Joys has been the joy of a year-round Farmers Market – TWO in the summer! Here's a sampling of one July Mendocino Market. THANK YOU! Sakina and farmers, for delicious eats.

Not a huge market, and very much northern, with a shorter growing season, but warmer here in the 'banana belt' of the Hood Canal. We got here two hours after it started, and it seemed uncrowded. There's also a Saturday Market here, as well as a Sunday Market in Chimicum ... and there's Hamlet in the Park on weekends, a candlelight concert in the Methodist Church tomorrow night, and, our hostess informs, the loveliest old-fashioned movie theater imaginable downtown. Too many restaurant choices, too. 



So we made a big Farmers Market salad and drank a beautiful local cider, and stayed in. More adventures in Port Townsend tomorrow.

Saturday in Silverton, so there's a market. This compact little market has a lot of good food, but not much organic (maybe they haven't gotten that memo yet?) and lots of dogs: one woman with three nasty little mutts, a big backpack, a shopping bag, and zero sense of her footprint, knock tomatoes on the ground. "Oh, sorry," she said, unapologetically. 

This little person stoutly denied that her thumb was watermelon flavored.
