Stop-- It's Market Time!

It is the first weekend in March and more produce is slowly making its way to the market! The All-Local Farmers' Market operates every Saturday, 8:00am - 12:00pm at 711 Whaley St. in the Olympia neighborhood. Come by for the season's best produce, meat, dairy, flowers, baked items, art, and crafts from all-local producers.
The move raises one important question for me: What about breakfast?

Rotating between Rosewood Market and the restaurant Gervais & Vine, the market has for the past few years featured affordable breakfasts prepared with local food by excellent chefs. Breakfast always helps to build the social dimension of any market!

In the meantime, customers can buy bread, pastries, and quiche from market vendors such as Rachel’s Wild Flour Confections, Heather’s Artisan Bakery and It Bites. Also, Petite Crepe will continue to serve made-to-order crepes at the market. Those gooey ham-and-cheese or apple-cinnamon crepes are affordable and delicious...Most importantly, there will be coffee.

Rosso will be providing breakfast this Saturday as well as having live music on the scene!
