Scene in Edmonds: Holiday market returns for another season

The Edmonds Holiday Market is back, with more than 70 vendors offering craft booths, late-season produce, fresh meat and seafood, flowers, wine and coffee tasting, and a selection of hot and tasty street food to please every palette.

The morning rain and wind of opening day soon gave way to partly sunny skies, and the aisles were filled to capacity with shoppers searching for that one-of-a-kind gift for special someone – or themselves.

Located along 5th Avenue South between Main Street and Centennial Plaza and up Bell Street to 6th Avenue, the Holiday Market will operate from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on five more Saturdays: Nov. 13 and 20, and Dec. 4, 11 and 18, skipping the Thanksgiving weekend Saturday, Nov. 27.

  1. Wild salmon caught on a commercial hook and line (troll set up) and killed and processed quickly vs. farm raised or mostly commercially caught gill net harvested fish where they may be dead for a prolonged period of time in the net before being pulled in and processed or dead in the storage area on a boat for a prolonged period . “Troll caught” assumed to be a higher quality product in fish speak.

    1. Thank you Clinton!

      Here’s what I found —
      “Trolling is used to catch pelagic fish such as salmon, mackerel and kingfish.

      Trolling is used both for recreational and commercial fishing whereas trawling is used mainly for commercial fishing.”

  2. Most people who are not new here in the Puget Sound region know what the term “troll caught” means, but a little education is never a bad thing, thanks to Clinton for that info.
