Gerald Holmquist (right) of Lynden visited Anacortes today with his delicious hazelnuts, “natural” and packaged with a variety of flavor enhancements. Behind the counter with Holmquist is his friend, Tom Skillman. Had to settle for a sample as I had no cash … but I’ll be back! Anacortes Farmers Market at the Depot, every Saturday going forward into fall.
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.
