UPDATE: Public Health – Seattle & King County announced on its website Monday (Sept. 23) that it has re-opened ‘Mama Sambusa,’ which had a booth at the Burien Farmers Market closed last Thursday due to “Imminent health hazard: No handwashing facilities available.”

We spoke to Mama herself, and she confirmed that she has met all the requirements that Public Health asked for, and that, “God willing,” she will be at the market Thursday. The market is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. at Burien Town Square Park.

Mama, who is from Somalia, has been in America 16 years.

Her Burien restaurant, which is located at 15217 6th Ave SW (map below), has been open since November, 2012 (in the spot formerly occupied by Captain G’s), and serves authentic African food. She won third place in the 2nd annual Burien Bites on June 2 (read about that here).

Here’s what Public Health posted on their website:
