Shop local for seasonal treats and treasures galore!!
Farmers Market Season is in full swing. It’s evident from the sound of musical buskers entertaining foot traffic, side-walks lined with lush bouquets and garden starters, booths stocked with bottles of cider, wine and kombucha, the bright colors of fresh fruits and veggies and the smell of warm pastries and lumpia wafting through the air. Tacoma loves “local” and where better to find fresh, locally-sourced produce, hand-made goods and more than at the nearest farmer’s market. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your lunch break or morning run-around. Color code your calendar this season to keep up with the cycle of these long running pop-up shops around town.
