Flowers and Cherries and Baked Breads, Oh My!

I love the farmers’ markets around Tacoma, especially the downtown Broadway Market on Thursdays.  I really don’t need a reason to go other than the thrill of people watching and saying “hi” to friends but for those of you who keep putting off that visit, perhaps saving it for ‘next week’, here is a list of top ten reasons to attend this fabulous event:

  1. Food (Ethnic cuisine from India, Mexico, Peru and more)
  2. Fresh cut flowers (Say “I love you” or I’m sorry” or buy a gift for yourself because you’re cool!)
  3. Locally made arts and crafts (Fuzzy hats, hand blown beads, smelly…er, I mean scented soaps)
  4. Food (Fresh baked breads, rolls, cupcakes, cookies and other calorific goodies)
  5. Hand dipped chocolate bananas (Food that’s fun to watch people eat!)
  6. Locally grown and organic seasonal fruits and vegetables (a.k.a. the “goods”)
  7. Music (Lay on the grass in the sun and watch your ice cream bar melt while listening to local talent)
  8. Balloon Lady (Not just for kids anymore)
  9. Henna Lady (Not just for adults anymore)
  10. Food (Hot dogs, fresh pie and kettle korn)

So there you have it.  If you are anywhere near or around Tacoma on Thursdays, come and see the Broadway Farmers’ Market (on Broadway of course).  They have now expanded their hours from 10:30 am – 4:00 pm….YAY!
