Where's Waldo at the 2017 Moscow Farmers Market

Transitioning into Summer's Bounty

Fresh fruit and crisp produce. That's what summer brings to mind for me. Snacking on some crunchy cucumbers, snap peas, or carrots to try and beat the summer heat. Or maybe it means biting into a juicy apricot and savoring the sweetness. Either way, longer days allow us to conjure up all sorts of ways to pass the time. If the Moscow Farmers Market isn't part of your summer checklist, definitely consider it. And for those of you that faithfully visit the market each week, your presence is duly noted! Whether you are a visitor or resident, be sure to look for 'Waldo' at the market the whole month of July as part of the Where's Waldo on the Palouse. Many thanks to BookPeople of Moscow for organizing this annual, family-friendly event.
