To Market, to Market.

What an amazing weather week for all of us from Skagit through Whatcom County. As I write this most of the vendors of the Bellingham Farmers Market will have weathered at least 4 storms, sustained sub-zero temperatures, and up to a foot of snow in just the past two weeks. Depending on where [...]
