Summer in the Pacific Northwest comes with an overwhelming abundance of produce and plant life. Nearly every small town has its own weekly farmers market, and living seasonally becomes accessible and fun! I collected four images that represent the span of our market season, from the first maple leaves of the late spring to fresh corn in late summer and early fall.
