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!
Do you grow your own veggies and fruit at home? We have just the contest for you! Bring one home-grown ugly produce to display at market and see how ugly yours are compared to other market patrons!
And of course a we have a vendor category. Let’s see just how ugly some of our own vendors’ items are this week.
Don’t forget to stop by the Market Information Tent to pick up tickets for the 2nd Annual Pig Raffle. Support the market and you might just win and fill your freezer with delicious L & B Mini Ranch pork this winter.
And hey, did you know that September 5 has been Kasey Kahne Day in Enumclaw since 2005? And of course our market is on Kasey Kahne Drive/First Street.
Come to market this week in your favorite KK gear. Let’s celebrate everything KK! Hometown kid that made it big in racing and NASCAR. KK will not be in attendance.
