Neither Rain Nor Sleet Nor Gloom Of Wind Shall Stop Today’s Farmers Market

Neither rain nor sleet nor the gloom of wind shall stop today’s Burien Farmers Market from going on as planned, running from 11am to 6pm in the Burien Town Square.

Tents are set up, and we’re almost certain you own an umbrella or hat, or perhaps one of those funky combo umbrella hats, which you can utilize effectively to prove that yes, you’re a rugged Northwesterner who won’t let a little rain or wind stop you from venturing out to get some fresh produce or baked goods or handmade crafts or numerous other great items worth buying.

While there, be sure to stop by the bright yellow Discover Burien tent (near SW 152nd) and pick up coupons and special deals from local merchants.

Please note though that we B-Town Bloggers will not be present at today’s market for two reasons:

  1. Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer is fighting a terrible cold, and from what his Mommy taught him, it’s not a good idea to get all wet (“you’ll catch pneumonia!” he claims to have heard from her more than once while growing up).
  2. Our computer and LCD monitor don’t do well in wet weather.

The expert weatherfolk say to expect this kind of stuff today:

Showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 11am.

High near 56.

Southwest wind between 7 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph.

Chance of precipitation is 80%.

But don’t let that stop you – in fact, from our personal experience, rainy days often result in the best deals, as vendors want to move product so they don’t have to re-load everything when it’s quitting time.

Just a tip.

  1. Thanks to all those who braved the wind and the rain – the vendors, the shoppers, the lookers, the listeners, the volunteers and Debra.

    It was a great day to practice your bartering skills and walk away with some great goods and fantastic deals. The Burien Farmers Market endeavors to persevere despite wind, rain, and whatever else Mother Nature throws at us.

    Make sure you stop by this Thursday and join us for another great day of shopping. We’ll see if we can bring back the sunshine.
