At last! Summer has arrived and with it, early season favorites such as strawberries, cherries and sugar snap peas. Find these summer delights at the Pike Place Market farmers markets on Pike Place and around downtown Seattle.
Strawberries are always perfect star players in smoothies, on scoops of vanilla ice cream or nestled in granola but they are also terrific supporting players in green and fruit salads.
