Kirkland Weds Market 2008: It's time! It's time!

W107211 Sunny skies can't be far off if it's time for the Wednesday MarketMay 7th is the kickoff and they've changed the time up a bit:  it's 2-7pm for the 2008 season which runs thru October 15th.  I recently sat down with Jodi Bardinelli, the new Director for the market, and she's got lots of great vendors and cool new ideas in store for us. 

There will be 60 booths in total (12 artists and the rest farmers) where you can pick up oysters, jams, honey, cheeses, vegetables, flowers (<---attn: Steve, these are only $5-10 and on your way home from work), croissants from the French Bakery, La Pasta's fresh-made pasta, Wooly Pigs bacon, or Willie Green's organic greens just to name a few.   

The first Wednesday of every month will have a family/kid focus with a Sprout Story-time at the new demo booth.  For Opening Day, our mayor Jim Lauinger, will be reading "My Pet Goat" at 3pm.  The Lake WA High School choir will be singing the Star Spangled banner and the kids can participate in a 'plant a seed' activity. 

Stay tuned for chef demos on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month and future events such as 'Touch a Tractor', 'Adopt a Greyhound' and the Seattle Humane Society's 'Max Mobile.'  Sur La Table will be showing us how it's done at the demo booth on the 3rd Weds of each month.  We can look forward to a beer garden and grill-off for Father's Day where dad's grill up steaks to be judged by local chefs.  And in September, there will be a Grape Stomp where teams of 3 will each get 20 pounds of grapes to stomp- the team with the most juice wins!

This year you can also sign up to get "The Fresh Sheet" which is a weekly email to let you know what items to expect at the Kirkland Wednesday Market each week.  You can sign up for that by sending an email to [email protected]
