Come See Us At Opening Day Of The Burien Farmers Market Today!
The B-Town Blog is proud to be the “official blog” of the weekly Discover Burien Farmers Market, which kicks off its 2011 season at 11 a.m. today near Burien Town Square.
And new this year – you’ll be able to use credit, debit or EBT cards when you buy farm-fresh produce, locally-made food products and one-of-a-kind handcrafted goods. Some vendors accept credit cards directly. Otherwise, shoppers can use debit, credit or EBT cards by purchasing market tokens at the Discover Burien Association booth. EBT tokens are only good for produce purchases. Debit and credit tokens can be spent like cash with the majority of the market’s 40-plus vendors. The nonprofit Discover Burien (we’re members), which produces the market, will not charge a fee for debit card use.
This will be the third year we’ve been there, and this year we’ve even got a brand new, pristine tent, where we’ll be blogging live and enjoying the fresh foods, crafts and of course the people – so come on over, find us and say hi. We’ll demonstrate our website, pull the curtain back and even let you see how we post stories. Heck, if you’re interesting enough, we might just do a story on YOU right there (and we’re also open to story ideas and news tips too…).
If you’re a local business person, we’ll prove to you that we’re your best (and still affordable – you can get on for as little as $30!) ad buy, because we get more local eyeballs than any other media outlet in the area (read about our recent stats and transparency policy here). And we’re updated more frequently, with more relevant local news than any other website. Period.
The Burien Farmers Market runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Burien Town Square Park, located at SW 152nd and 5th Place SW. Look for the big LCD monitor and B-Town Blog banner!
