Saturday mornings I cherish heading to Coupeville to run onto the ferry to Port Townsend. Why would I do this you might ask. It’s all about the Farmer’s Market. They have my favorite farmer’s market but it’s also about the experience. The 20 minute ferry ride to Port Townsend is quite lovely. You can easily see cruise ships, freight ships and if you are lucky possibly a pod of orcas. Once in Port Townsend you can meander thought the tourist shops and great cafes or head uptown and be greated by the local vendors. Don’t miss the Farmer’s Market.
The assortment of vendors at the Farmer’s Market is quite varied. You can find easily a dozen veggies booth, flowers, bakers, clothing, jewelry, fresh meat and seafood, wineries, musicians can also be found every saturday. My favorite bakery is Sweet Lamb. This young baker is the bomb. She always has great danishes and my very favorite the Kouign-Amann (queen amonn) If you can’t make it over on a Saturday and still want a fresh Sweet Lamb pasty you can head to my favorite coffee shop, Velocity Coffee (431 Water Street) When I was still living in Kalipsell, MT I had a friend that told me I had to go to Velocity for the best coffee! I still agree with him.
If you have a free morning it’s worth the trip. If you have a free afternoon take your car and drive to a couple of wineries and the Finn River distillery. Several of the wineries will have music in the afternoon. Enjoy my lovely home and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions about housing on Whidbey or relocation.
