Queen Anne Farmer’s Market
June 22, 2012 § 1 Comment
I’ve been wanting to visit all the farmer’s markets around Seattle neighborhoods for some time! Since my friend, Lena, lives near the Queen Anne market, we decided to meet up and explore.
I was blown away by how nice this market was. Parking was easy and the vendors were set up on either side of a wide side street off Queen Anne Ave.
I admired the beautifully presented vegetables and fruit.
Then we came upon the strawberries, which are FINALLY in season. They were gorgeous and red all the way through. I picked up a half pint because I couldn’t just walk away!
Around the corner in a medium-size parking lot where vendors with specialty foods and an abundance of food trucks. The samples were out of control…we sampled fresh mozzarella (that they were making on-site), fresh chevre, ginger caramel, pastries, jam, salad dressing, olives and ginger beer.
After all the sampling a chatting with vendors we had to choose which food truck to try. This is one of the toughest decisions at the market…from wood-fired pizza, po-boys, tacos, pulled-pork to Indian and Venezuelan food (what!!?) we went with Tandoozi.
I got the chicken tiki masala on fresh, made on-site naan, so.good.
To end our adventures at the market, we stopped at parfait ice cream, which still had a pretty long line even though the market was wrapping up.
Another tough decision, but since strawberries are just now in season, I went with the strawberry. This is a pretty bold statement, but that was seriously THE BEST strawberry ice cream I’ve ever had!
You’re doing great things Queen Anne, until next week!
