Closed for the Season/Possibly Longer

Sorry, due to lack of funding and volunteers, this event has had to stop for now. Maybe down the road someone will get excited about it and open it up again. But that might have to wait until after our bridge is open again.

In the meantime, stop by alaboutsouthpark.com to find out the latest events and come support our businesses trying to hang in there until August 2013 when the bridge reopens.

Market on Wheels closes for this Year

Sorry to tell you that the Market on Wheels will close for the remainder of the 2010 season. The group will be reorganizing, taking stock and planning for a bigger better market next year. If you are interesting in helping, jump in and contact kate@ecoss.org

If you still want local organic veggies from Jose, he’ll be at his commercial plot at Marra Farm every Saturday while the veggies are still growing. You can come meet him there, he’ll pick it fresh right then for you. See him on Saturdays 10am – 2pm. On Sept. 18th he’ll be selling at Fiestas Patrias however at the community center in SP. Matter of fact a bunch of the market folks will be there at the fiesta.

It is with great honor I have had the chance to work on marketing for the market. I have learned a ton about markets, food permits, and what great neighbors I have. I have made some good friends. But I didn’t learn a lick of Spanish even with sitting through so many meetings. Whatup. Oh well. Thanks for the opportunity to work with you all. Come back to hear what is happening with the market.

I was camping but this is what I heard

Yes, even I need to get away every once in a while…so yes, I missed the market this past weekend. But it didn’t stop me from hearing about it. Did you go? What did you see? You can always leave a comment and tell us what worked well and give us suggestions.

So I hear we had 21 vendors this time. Or something like that. food, services, clothing, jewelry, ice cream, veggies, and massage. But they also brought in a bouncy house for the kids to play in for free while parents shopped. And there were boxing demonstrations as well.

It’s never a dull moment in South Park and why should the market be any different. So our next market is August 14th. You should just come for the day. Start with coffee. Get your brakes fixed or that new set of tires, shop the market, mingle with and in our community, walk down to the river and look for the resident otter, grab dinner and stay for our outdoor cinema. The movie events start at 8:30pm and the movie title that night will be “Where the Wild Things Are”. Admission is free, bring the family and friends, join us for a small town feeling, down to earth, day in Seattle. If you want, bring a can food donation for the local food bank.

Tools, Clothing, Food, Flowers, Jewelry, Boxing?

This Saturday come join your neighbors at our third market. What does Boxing have to do with a market? We may not provide cooking demos, but there will be boxing demo’s this weekend. So what that means is you learn some new trick about exercise…so you can eat and then go get a little workout in. How cool is that?

And with the flea market part there is word of used tools, hardware, clothing and more.

Rumor has it Full Tilt will be back so come back sure you snag yourself a Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream bar…yummy!

See at Napoli’s between 10am and 4 pm on Saturday, July 31st. Grab a coffee, eat some good food at our neighboring restaurants, and maybe even have your brakes changed at the Tire Store while you shop.
