We’re “blogging live” from our booth at the season opening of the Burien Farmers Market today (open until 6pm), with many new vendors on 5th Ave SW in Town Square, with mostly sunny skies, live music from “Two Scoops” Moore, lots of fresh locally-grown produce, and of course great flowers just waiting to be bought for Mother’s Day.

Of course, we’re here at our booth (for the third year in a row), and aside from coming down just to say hi, we’re also selling 16 15 autographed copies of the locally-written “Three Tree Point” historic books, on sale for just $22 bucks each (can you say another perfect Mother’s Day gift?).

Here are some photos taken today by Michael Brunk and Scott Schaefer:

Lori Alden of BTB Advertiser Prudential Northwest cuts the ribbon for the market's official opening. Watching from behind her are (L to R), Discover Burien Executive Director Steve Gilbert, Margie Gibb, Jeff Kearney and Discover Burien Event Manager Debra George.

Mostly sunny skies made for a mostly nice opening day.

There are plants aplenty at the Farmers Market.

First-time vendor Giuseppe Sordello of "Via Rosa 11" brings his Mama and Nonna's authentic Italian pasta and sauces to the market.

Jerry Robnett of Robnett Apiaries is selling his homegrown honey at the market. Despite "a shortage of queens" this year, as well as a recent worldwide drop in the honeybee population, Jerry is keeping his honey prices the same as last year.

At our B-Town Blog booth you can buy autographed copies of the "Three Tree Point" historic photo book for just $22 each.

  2. Thanks so much to everyone who have helped to make the Burien Farmers Market such a great community program. From the vendors who show up every Thursday, sun, rain or monsoon to the folks who come for the farm-fresh delectables, plants, prepared foods, artisan wares and music…sun, rain, or monsoon.

    Discover Burien, its members, board and staff are proud to bring this to Burien each year. Special kudos to Debra George for making this happen, to the City of Burien for their continued support and patronage, and to all of our illustrious sponsors.

    We hope that you will continue to spend Thursday’s at the Market. Make it a special treat for you, your family, friends and colleagues – then check out all of the other fine establishments Burien has to offer.

    Of course, don’t forget to check out the B-Town Blog for the latest on what is going on in town. Stop in at their booth and let them know what your favorite thing about Burien is.
