The Tacoma Farmers Market had its first Harvest Feast dinner Saturday. The event was at Terry's Berries and was a multiple-course buffet prepared by top Tacoma toques.
Sadly, I missed it. I was stuck in the newsroom working the night editor shift.
In a small way, on my Saturday night, it was delightful watching wire editor Kathleen Cooper George pull together a tremendous Hurricane Ike news package for Sunday's paper. But would I rather have been eating cheese from Estrella and pork prepared by Charlie McManus? You bet.
Were you there, at the Harvest Feast? Comment and tell us what you liked, or didn't. Would you go again?
Here, a few photos from market manager Laura Edwards:

People eating! And having fun! Wish that was me Saturday night.
