You might be shopping for plants or farm-grown berries, looking for scrapbooking supplies, or seeking ways to prevent a home burglary. Or perhaps you want to fun family activity or even help raise money for families in need. (And did we mention, you can even make your way to the ballpark and support your local high school baseball team?) You’ll find opportunities for that and more in or near Edmonds Saturday, May 5. Here’s a sample:
