Special Events Will Spice Up Burien Farmers Market Every Thursday
Burien’s Farmers Market starts Thursday, May 6th (you can see our countdown clock in the right sidebar), with the usual market fare as well as plenty of new features, including special events like a dog fashion show and the Seattle Humane Societyâ€™s MaxMobile, sure to spice things up.
Produced by the Discover Burien Association, the farmers market will unfurl its tents and tables every Thursday through October in the Burien Town Square with farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, locally made food items and unique handcrafted goods.
On opening day (Thursday, May 6), enter the family pooch dressed to thrill in a dog fashion show at 3pm. The fashion show is the senior project of a local high school student. On May 13, consider adopting a pet from the Seattle Humane Societyâ€™s MaxMobile from Noon to 3pm.
For customers concerned with freshness or sustainability, the marketâ€™s just-picked produce is grown by Washington State farmers, mostly local, plus a few from Eastern Washington. Quality is particularly high since there are no middlemen or delays. Great prices are another benefit of shopping the market, even for organically grown produce, according to Debra George, Discover Burienâ€™s events manager.
This year, a meat vendor will join the many returnees offering such food finds as local raw honey, handmade gluten-free pasta and fresh-baked goods.
Customers can enjoy an affordable al fresco lunch from the marketâ€™s hotdog cart, or relax at one of the marketâ€™s patio tables while catching live tunes by Eric â€œTwo Scoopsâ€ Moore from noon to 3pm. Or stop and chat with us at The B-Town Blog, the marketâ€™s official blogger, which will blog live from the market.
