Supposing you take a break from opening and closing windows in your house, positioning fans, and looking for a cool spot on the bed sheets, and head to the Bellevue Farmers Market!
There was an old Coca-Cola ad that used to run when I was a kid: during the heat of summer, they would show people frolicking in the snow. Along those lines, I thought I'd refresh you all with some heat-relieving Market offerings.
If you haven't tried Seattle Pops yet, they're luscious, not to mention seasonal, fresh, and local. Better yet, they have a punch card, to encourage you to try every one of their tempting flavors.
Then there's the slushies at Martin Family Orchards...
Whether you favor pear- or apple-cider slushies, they're worth the brain freeze.
And of course you've walked by Bluebird Ice Cream, with its small-batch artisanal flavors:
You may have inexplicably missed Solstice in Fremont this year (or you were too busy parading to stop in at the store), but that doesn't mean you still can't sample Bluebird's wares.
And then finally, I noticed La Panaderia keeps its cupcakes nice and chilled, so all that generous frosting doesn't melt into puddles...
Pair a cupcake with one of their agua frescas and you're good to go.
Rain or shine, heat wave or cold snap, we'll see you at the Market tomorrow.
