LFP Farmers Market every Sunday 11 am to 4 pm

Sunday, July 11, 2010

The Lake Forest Park Farmers Market is held every Sunday, rain or shine, from 11 am to 4 pm in the lower level of the Towne Center at the juncture of Ballinger and Bothell Way. 

This booth offered huge fresh heads of romaine and other greens.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, plants, meat, fish, jelly and other, more exotic wares are for sale. 

Fresh blueberries taste different, perhaps because "they slept in their own beds last night." 

Street musicians busk with their cases open for donations.  Buskers are welcome at the Market.  Adam Borkoski (photo left) played Appalachian folk music on banjo, mouth harp, and vocals. 

There are different buskers every week.

Several booths offer lunch, which can be eaten in a common area, covered with a canopy.

New this season is a booth offering a variety of freshly made crepes.  The hot dog and kielbasa booth offers a fast and inexpensive lunch.
This 4th of July bouquet was purchased as this photo was being taken.  There are a variety of cut flowers available, as well as booths selling rose bushes and other plants.

 The Pickled Gourmet sold everything which could possibly be put in a jar and pickled.  The McSweet company started with pickled cocktail onions and expanded to include garlic, dilly beans, asparagus, and giardiniera.

Pacific Crest Foraging was easily the most interesting booth, with a variety of hand-picked and dried mushrooms and sea beans which grow in the salt marches and tidal flats by the ocean.  

How do you eat sea beans?  They are good in salads or as a condiment with fish, the Forager said.
