We hope you all have had a good week. Now, what's a great way to start a weekend of great meals with family and friends?...come to the farmer's market with your friends and family and pick up some fresh, local vegetables, meat and baked goods.

Walla Walla Sweet Onions:  Big, sweet onions that are especially great for fresh eating in salads and on burgers, as well as fried as onion rings. Mild and sweet.
Red Onions: Fresh harvested red onions that are great raw, grilled or caramelized.
