This was my first week of Heather's Eat Local Challenge. I almost didn't make it. The week turned out to be a little more crazy/hectic than I thought. I started out missing my weekly trip to the Ballard Farmers Market due to a long/hard training workout that was immediately followed by a nap. The rest of the week looked very similar. But on Friday night, I hit the Phinney Ridge Farmers Market after work. I'm so glad I went. If you haven't been to this market, I highly suggest it. I think it could quickly become my favorite one! I bought everything for our dinner:
- Beef Rib Eye from Olsen Farms in Colville, WA
- Lettuce from Carnation, WA which was mixed with lettuce from my container garden & carrots from our organic delivery service (they came from another farm in Washington, but I'm not sure where)
- Potatoes from Carnation, WA
- Blueberries and Raspberries from Fir Island
I added that with bread from the Essential Baking Company and a couple of glasses of wine from Chateau St. Michelle. It was a fabulous dinner. I look forward to more of these!
