Skinny Kitty Farms pops up for the Queen Anne Farmers Market this Thursday

From our friends at the Queen Anne Farmers Market:

qafm-skinny-kitty-farmsIf you are counting down the days until the 2017 market season, we have a treat for you: Skinny Kitty Farms will be setting up shop on Queen Anne this Thursday, November 3rd, from 3pm-6pm to fill your pantry.

They will be bringing:

  • Winter Squash
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Kale — Red Russian, Spigariello, Green and Scarlet Curly
  • Mustard Greens
  • Cabbage
  • Dry Beans — Black and Pinto
  • Apples — Kings, Crispins (early and late crops too), Akane, Shazuka, and a fall medley
  • EGGS (limited supply, 1st come, 1st served; sorry no reservations)
  • Heritage Chickens
  • Whole Ducks

It’s about time for holiday parties, so they also have some great farm-made gifts for your hosts or guests:

  • Apple Sauce
  • Apple Cider
  • Plum Conserve
  • Apple Jam

They will be parked in the same area as the market, but will not have a tent up. Look for their bright yellow and white van. David and Bonnie will be there to help you find just what you need.

If this first pop-up is a success, they will continue to come down the first Thursday of every month until the market opens. You should never be without access to your farm-fresh produce and goods, so let’s help them as they support us.

Musical Guest: Seattle-based Billy Brandt w/the Thing & the Stuff Band is the latest top contender in the groove tradition. His music seems unconcerned with popular trends, just committed to excellence in musical execution. Billy’s lyrics adroitly use simple stories to tell tales of desire and daily spiritual truths, his songs bringing back a jazzy authenticity to modern songs about city living.

Queen Anne’s first Play Street happens Thursday, next door to the Queen Anne Farmers Market

playstreetflyerLocal community group Queen Anne Greenways has been busy behind the scenes getting ready for our first Queen Anne Play Street. They were at last week’s Queen Anne Farmers Market, talking about the inaugural Play Street that happens tomorrow, Thursday, July 28th.

A Play Street makes sense for a neighborhood like Queen Anne, and if you’re a regular at the Queen Anne Farmers Market, you know that kids are a big part of the summer community event. Now, kids are the center of attention with the Play Street, thanks to help from QAFM, the Queen Anne Community Center, and local businesses Once Upon a Time and Blue Highway Games.

The Play Street runs from 3pm to 6pm on 1st Ave W between Crockett and Howe Streets, right next to QAFM, and along the stretch that houses Queen Anne Pool and the Queen Anne Community Center. What can kids expect from this great community event? Free balloons, face painting, toys, a games table, and fun activities to keep them engaged.

Remember to bring the kids to the Play Street, a great companion for the kiddos who are often so patient with us adults at the Queen Anne Farmers Market – tomorrow is their day!
