Farmers Market

Published June 28, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

You’re bound to find something you simply must have at the Anacortes Farmers Market, open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday (rain or shine) until mid-October. The market is located at the Anacortes Arts Depot at 7th and R Avenue, next door to the W.T. Preston. Vendors offer a variety of tasty goodies, from baked goods to cheese. Also on the menu are local fruits, vegetables and seafood. Many generous vendors offer free tastes of their wares. Those interested in “homegrown” items other than food will find a number of arts and crafts people at the market.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
