It was a perfect day. The weather cooperated, with gray clouds giving way to blue skies. The market was a sea of booths full of fresh produce and flowers.

Pandemic protocols were strictly observed. Every vendor and shopper was masked and staff were very careful to control the number of shoppers in the booths.

The lines were long to get in but moved constantly. Waiting shoppers used dots on the ground to keep the family groups and individual shoppers physically separated.

People were thrilled to get out of the house after over a year of quarantine and have a fun destination - not to mention the strawberries that are in season right now.

One booth that everyone seemed to be talking about was Egg Song Farms with the adorable helpers behind the table.

The most talk was about "the mushroom guy" i.e. Skagit Gourmet Mushrooms. He sells gourmet mushrooms of different varieties.

The Egg Song workers were not the only cute kids working the market. Seven year old Mercer Lemkin created a chalk advertisement for the market. He attends Parkwood Elementary and his father, Brendan Lemkin, started Shoreline Farmers Market a decade ago.
