Writer appreciated Farmers Market
October 3, 2008 · Updated 2:09 AM
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Mount Si Senior
Center and the North Bend Parks Department for sponsoring our
first-ever Farmers Market the past few Saturdays. It was wonderful to have
vendors from Walla Walla, Yakima, Monroe, Duvall and more locally.
A big thanks to Kaaren Lee and Marie Wan of the Parks
Department, who stayed on-site every Saturday to see that vendors had what they
needed. The price for the vendors for the booths was very reasonable and
the weather was great every Saturday.
I hope the local shoppers enjoyed all the fresh produce that came in
each week. I particularly was fond of the baby bok choy and Yukon gold
potatoes. The armloads of flowers that were purchased every Saturday
must have really livened up many homes in the area.
Thanks again for a great job, and I look forward to next year.
