Happy 9th Birthday Mercer Island Farmers Market!

Oh man, this post did not publish as I planned. Did you attend the Mercer Island’s Farmer Market on Sunday and help celebrate their 9th birthday? Did you take any photos of the party? If you did, please share in the comment section.  Cheers to MIFM’s 9th year of operation.  Really looking forward to their 10th birthday in 2017!!

Mercer Island Farmers Market We offer a hearty “Happy Birthday!” to Mercer Island Farmers Market! On Sunday, August 14th, come to MIFM and celebrate its 9th season of operation. There will be a special tasting of peaches from Harvesting Autumn, Martin Family Orchard, and Collins Family Orchards. Sample different varieties of peaches and pick some up to enjoy at home!

MIFM is teaming up with sponsor Covenant Shores to feature a live chef demo with their resident chef, Jerry Phipps. Homemade cookies will be on the menu for shoppers to enjoy! Over at the Info Booth, volunteers will be giving out the 2016 MIFM shopping bags, so stop by to pick one up.

Live music will be provided by Joe Ross & The Birdwatchers. Their lively honky-tonk/swing music will keep your toes tapping while you cruise around the market. With musical influences including Louis Prima, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and the Rolling Stones, Joe Ross & The Birdwatchers will play the perfect party music for a festive birthday celebration.

Over at the Children’s Table the kids will enjoy painting with blackberry ink. The kids will enjoy learning how to use these yummy berries to create beautiful artwork.

The birthday vendor of the week is Collins Family Orchards. They have been a terrific addition to the market over many seasons. A 4th generation family farm located in Selah, WA, Collins Family Orchards is managed by the father-son team of Calvin and Brian Collins.

A big huge THANK YOU to everyone who works so diligently to make Mercer Island Farmers Market the success it has become. It’s a cherished annual tradition on Mercer Island!!
