It seems like we just opened the Summer Market a short time ago, and here we are welcoming in the month of August already.
As many of you may have noticed, most of the crops are early this season, due to the elevated temperatures. So if you are looking for a late season fruit, stop by this weekend and talk to your favorite farmers to see when they are expected. Last week we saw the arrival of the early nectarines, and a bounty of fresh corn. For those of you looking for berries, Anthem Farm has joined us from Whidbey Island, with some fresh strawberries, a great late-season variety, along with a diverse selection of unusual plums. As far as other berries, get them while you can. The blueberry season is in full swing now, with only a few weeks left to pick, if we are lucky. .
With the Blue Angels in town this weekend and all the sunshine, check out some of our great barbecue options — perfect for having a home celebration of Seafair weekend. And if you are entertaining some guests for Seafair, visit all the fabulous crafters and artists who join us at the market each week. From eclectic glass blowers, to wood turners, jewelers, photographers and more, there is something for everyone.
So come down this Saturday — pick up some flowers, maybe some breakfast or lunch, and enjoy the day shopping with us! See you at the market.
