By noon on Sunday, there wasn't a parking spot left in the upper lot at Lake Forest Park Town Center, but people continued to come in a steady stream to shop at the November Winter Market at Third Place Commons at Lake Forest Park Town Center.

Some were headed straight for Thanksgiving dinner, buying vegetables, jellies, jams, and relishes. Others expanded the menu to include Lopez Island Wine, exotic cheeses, and teas. And some went for the here and now, buying Whidbey Island ice cream and gourmet popcorn.

Those planning ahead for Christmas went for stocking stuffers of gourmet dip mixes, and multiple honey based items from the Beekeeper's Secret. Gardeners bought plants in starter pots, perhaps to decorate the table. Huge door wreaths sold for only $15.

There was a violin player upstairs and a native flute player downstairs. Honey Bear Bakery and the other restaurants did a booming business.

Somehow it was always busy but never crowded, and everyone was happy and friendly.

You'll have another chance - a December Winter Market has been scheduled on Sunday, December 15, 2013.
