It’s Market (and Pet) Day: Queen Anne Farmers Market Special Events & Vendors for August 3rd

Posted on August 3rd, 2017 by Laura Fonda

It’s Thursday, and that means another market day along W Crockett. The Queen Anne Farmers Market is open from 3pm to 7:30pm to fill your market needs.

Here’s the info you need to know to plan your late Thursday afternoon and/or evening:

3pm: Pet Day!
Bring your four-legged friends to the market on Thursday, August 3 (also welcome: two-legged friends, no-legged friends, and eight-legged friends – if you have a pet octopus) for a special pet-focused day*. It’s going to be a really fun PAWty.

Pet day will be complete with pet water stations, games, giveaways, and a pet photo booth.

One of the scheduled events is from MEOW Cat Rescue. They will be hosting a stuffed animal adoption event for the young and young at heart. With a pledge to be kind to animals and speak up if one witnesses animal abuse, kids will be approved to adopt the stuffed animal of their choice. They will also be accepting donations for their public spay/neuter voucher program which provides no cost vouchers for spay/neuter surgeries at either an Eastside or north end clinic for folks needing financial assistance to get their pet altered.

Downtown Dog Lounge will be giving grooming touch-ups at market for pets that need a summer trim.
