Mercer Island Farmers Market: What’s Happening Sunday, Sept. 9th

For those who are fans of the Mercer Island Farmers Market (MIFM) Facebook Page, you may have already heard who will be the special musical guest at Sunday’s market. If not, become a fan– it’s an awesome place to get up-to-date market news!

Okay, back to the special musical guest— first hint is that this weekend’s market theme is Kid Stuff. Second hint— parents with pre-schoolers are probably familiar with his songlist, which includes Sugar Ant, Crazy Blue Beetle, Messy Face, Stompy the Bear and Eleanor the Elegant Elephant. Third hint: fans of the Presidents of the United States of America are probably familiar with the lead singer’s side project…

Yep! Caspar Babypants will be rockin’ MIFM, playing his 3-string acoustic guitar. Joining him will be co-author, Kate Endle, bringing fun songs, and accompanying sing-along books, to children (and their parents!) during MIFM. It promises to be a high-energy, fun event.

The other musical guest during Sunday’s market day is Yammba-Conga Drum Group. I like the poster for this particular market, which says that they will be providing the Market Beets =) The Children’s table will be featuring flower prints and collages.

The following produce vendors will be on hand so you can pick up fresh, seasonal produce for the week: lvarez Organic Farms, Collins Family Orchard, Hedlin Family Farm, Kittitas Valley Greenhouse, Martins Family Orchard and Tonnemaker Family Orchard.
