Scene in Edmonds: Second night of Uptown Market

The second Edmonds Uptown Market made a splash Thursday evening along 236th Street Southwest next to Edmonds Lutheran Church. The final event of the summer will be Thursday, Sept. 9.

  1. I volunteered as a greeter last night at the Uptown Market and wanted to share that the people who came really liked that they could easily park at the Lutheran Church or just walk from home.

    I got to see a beautiful swath of Edmonds neighbors ranging in age and ethnicity, friends and families, and lots of cute dogs! I live nearby and really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with nearby neighbors.
    I got to chat with a few too, which was fun.

    Food choices were popular and the vendors used primarily paper-based and biodegradable containers, so the waste seemed very minimal to me.
    Floral bouquets were $10 and were spectacularly beautiful.
    There was a Parks & Recreation booth where visitors could give their feedback on the future priorities of parks in Edmonds and have face to face with the Director, Angie Feser.

    The live music was fun! There were 2 musical groups doing live performances throughout the evening.
    The second act, lead by Greg Kramer, provided an inspiring jazz backdrop to the gathering that truly created joyful moments for me, and I’m sure others who joined.

    Kudos and thank you to the Mayor and the City of Edmonds staff for putting this event together! It felt really special and brought people together in a very natural and community-driven way.

    Try to go to the Sept 9th Uptown Market,
    unfortunately I’ll be out of town or I would be too!
