Cannon Beach Farmer's Market...

~simply delish!~

My family and I just returned from a visit of a Southerly nature to Cannon Beach, right on the coast in Oregon just outside of Seaside(about a 3.5 hour drive from Seattle). We have traveled there numerous times with much joy and fun-filled excursions such as jaunts to Tillamook creamery, EVOO cooking school, a winery here and there and various restaurants, bistros and cafes. This time was no exception, with the only one being that we stayed right in town this time, chilled and hung out on the beach and enjoyed the sun(well, overcast for the most part), surf and local scene. The emphasis of this post and the highlight for me this time was our attendance and finds at the local farmer's market on Gower Street in the center of town on Tuesday. The fare was that of many a Seattle farmers gatherings...uber freshness, exciting ingredients, interesting "cultivateurs" of the land, and just down right tasty foodstuffs! Enjoy this "journey" of ingredients we sampled and savored as we drifted through the stalls sipping our Sleepy Monk Coffee...
