SFoodie has always found shopping the farmers' market a powerful kind of therapy, hooking our hemp shopping bag over one shoulder, digging the gorgeous colors, and wallowing in the sensual luxury of sniffing herbs and flowers.

For shoppers at Seattle's newly launched Cannabis Farmers' Market, that kind of retail therapy reached new heights yesterday.

Seattle's KOMO 4 reported Sunday on the launch of the monthly marijuana market in South Lake Union, a neighborhood in the heart of the city being converted into upscale condos and office parks. The Cannabis Farmers' Market lets medical marijuana patients browse a collection of weed vendors, reports KOMO 4 vendor Ray Lane:

With names like "Pineapple Express," "Kungfoo Goo," and "Stimulus," a wide variety of marijuana roped in a packed house at Seattle's first Farmers' Market for pot ... With a valid I.D. and the correct medical papers, patients could shop freely. Each gram goes for about $10 to $12.
Tacoma, Wash., hosted the first Cannabis Farmers' Market last fall. It returns there next Sunday, then appears again in Seattle in late March. KOMO 4 reports that police know about the market, which is expected to grow as word gets, uh, passed around.
