Tacoma's newest farmers market, the 6th Ave., kicks off at 3:30 p.m. today, just off Sixth Avenue on Pine Street, in front of Engine House No. 9.
Here's a new Farmer-Friendly Food Challenge, specifically for Sixth Avenue-area restaurants:
Buy some products at the farmers market -- anything from fruit to veggies to cheese to seafood to meat -- and use them in menu items.
Chefs: If you've got any Farmer-Friendly food up your sleeves, promote them here.
Diners: If you come across any Farmer-Friendly food -- or simply have suggestions for chefs after cruising today's market -- promote them here.
