Late Season at the Farmers’ Market

November 15, 2009

Most of Seattle’s neighborhood farmers’ markets have closed for the season, but the University Market goes year round.  I stopped by yesterday to see the seasonal produce.  I was especially taken with the large cabbage roses that were being made into bouquets with flowers.  The vendors were bundled in sweaters, caps, and gloves against the chill, but it still was a lively place.
