Mother's Day Farmers Market was colorful and full of food

It was a semi-sunny Mother's Day and the Lake Forest Park Farmer's Market was open for business. 

The upper and lower parking lots were full and if you were lucky someone was leaving as you circled the lots opening a spot for you.
The rain stopped and the sun appeared in time for the opening and it remained sunny until an hour after the market closed. 

Many long time vendors returned and a few new vendors joined them.

It was definitely the place to go for lunch. Regular food booths cooked won tons on site, sold pizza, and for the opening a whole food court with half a dozen food trucks set up in front of City Hall.

For dessert there were hand-made caramels and orchard fresh bottles of cider. The Lake Forest Park Water District promoted clean, fresh, additive free water.

Four booths sold huge, gorgeous, variegated bouquets of flowers - one specialized in tulips of every color.

Craft booths sold a variety of hand made goods, such as metal birds at Metal Wings Studio.

The market was busy from opening at 10am and was still busy after the official closing time of 3pm.

The Lake Forest Park Farmers Market will be open every Sunday, from 10am to 3pm on the lower level of Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way.
