Wanolitto’s Musings for this Saturday’s Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market


Last Saturday the market and the marina made a big welcome to the Tacoma Yacht Club, some 30 boats strong. It took a while for the sun to come out but club members were seen all over the market enjoying shopping and music and visiting with new found friends. This is what the market is about; meeting new and old friends and catching up on what’s been going on in the community and in their lives.

Just in time for the fall/winter season: check out the new Knit Beanies at the logo wear/info booth. All proceeds benefit the market foundation.

Knit Beanies

Back this Sat is the kid’s all-time favorite Highline MaST center with their touchy-feely tanks filled with wild creatures from Puget Sound waters.

Volunteer group Girl Scouts Troup will have a booth celebrating Super Saturday all across King County.

Market sponsor Down & Out Demolition has donated their booth space to the North Hill Elementary WatchDOGS. They will be doing a fundraising event. They will have baked/food goods available for purchase by donation. These donations will allow the WatchDOGS to pay for their events, such as Pizza Nights, Open Gym Nights and Doughnuts with Dads. North Hill Elementary PTSA will be there along with the North Hill Elementary School WatchDOGS Dads!

Also sponsor Judson Park Senior Living will be showcased this Saturday. They are celebrating over 50 years of service to retired seniors in our community. Since 1963, Judson Park has earned a reputation for quality, stability and leadership in the Seattle area. They are always looking at the future of retirement living, so they can anticipate and address the changing expectations of those they serve.

Food Trucks: Bing of Fire, Six Coins Japanese Mobile, and Peasant Food Manifesto
