Adventures at the Farmers Market

The kids are out of school, the sun is (mostly) shining here in the Pacific Northwest, and farmers market season is in full swing. In the past couple of weeks, I've had the pleasure of vending at the Kent Farmers Market, Burien Farmers Market, and my favorite (I'm biased because I live here!), the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market. Needless to say, it's been a very busy time of hauling soap to and from locations, and of course, making more soap! Here are some notable highlights from the past few weeks of farmers markets.

Bartering for Berries in Burien

I had the opportunity to trade my soaps for a flat of local, organic berries from another vendor at the Burien Farmers Market recently. It doesn't get much better than this! I've also bartered my soaps for bakery bread, signs, and jewelry in the past.

Fresh, local, organic berries. It doesn't get any better than this!

Oh, the People You'll Meet!
