Market season is here. We're all excited to head down the the Eugene (OR) Saturday Market tomorrow. I live outside of Portland, OR which does have a big Saturday Market (it's also open on Sunday). While the Portland market is big, and well attended, it's also somewhat of a junk sale- lots of cheap imported junk. There's also some cool local stuff, but the vibe just isn't there for me. Anymore, I rarely go.
On the other hand, the Eugene Saturday Market is limited to only handcrafted items, including the food. It's a vibrant scene with a substantial farmers market (pretty much all organic), great food and some pretty cool handcrafted items. I'm ready to dig into my first Ritta's Burrito of the season. I know you guys like tacos, but Ritta's is better
Oh yeah- the people watching is pretty cool too. I may have to buy the kids another joke book from Frog (it will depend on when he had his last bath)
How bout it? Do you have, or know of, a great local market?
