The weather has turned autumn-like and the days are getting shorter. However there is so much good food at the market right now. Squash has transitioned from summer (zucchini) to fall (pumpkins and delicata) and even winter (acorn, butternut, kabocha). There are still berries to be had. And don’t forget that we have cheese, honey, Alaskan fish, pickles, and preserves!
In preparation for the final market day next week, here is the schedule of events for September 26. Let’s celebrate the great things of 2019 together!
- 3:00-6:30: For the kids: A scavenger hunt! With prizes!
- 3:30-4:30: Chef Lesa of Lesa Cooks! She’ll create something delicious from Farmers’ Market products
- 5:00-5:30: Gramma Berta will give a Canning Demonstration using seasonal produce
- 5:45-6:45: Jess Morse, Enumclaw local musician and singer will end our market with her talents
This is our thank you to our customers, our vendors, our sponsors and our board and market manager for being part of the village that made this market happen this year. Please join us!
This will be your last chance to stock up on produce and products for your dinner table and even purchase unique Christmas presents!
We had a great week on September 5 celebrating Kasey Kahne Day. Kasey’s dad Kelly brought Kasey’s first race car to market and Marilyn from CC’s on Cole loaned us Flat Kasey for selfie and photo opportunities.
School is back in session and fall sports are also in full effect. The market is just now hitting the peak of harvest season. The farmers on the plateau are bringing the best products ever for our final weeks. And we are gearing up for a big market celebration on September 26th. We have a chef demo, kids’ scavenger hunt and more fantastic live music planned for the last market day of 2019.
If you are interested in helping out with setup, load out or other market activities in these final weeks, please reach out to the Board. The days are getting shorter, so load out help after market is closed at 7:00pm is especially needed right now.
The 2019 season is starting to wind down and we have only 3 markets left. We hope you have enjoyed coming to the market each week. Our volunteers and vendors have really enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. We are already looking forward to next year!
