Farmboat Floating Farmer’s Market: I’m on a boat!

Just as many of the seasonal farmers markets in Seattle are closing down for the year, the new Lake Union Park is bucking the trend by playing host to a brand new market, but with a fun new twist- it floats!  Starting today, and happening every Wednesday  in October, Farmboat.org is turning the Lake Union waterfront into an old-fashioned port of call, featuring local produce, crafts.  Shop for fall veggies and handmade items while you explore more than half a dozen antique floating ships!  (And you can do it all while singing T-Payne’s most famous parody song).

If all goes well (read: if enough people come and visit), Farmboat wants to turn their floating farmers market into a travelling, year-round occurrence, visiting various neighborhoods in the Puget Sound.  So go support the mission!  After all, tomorrow promises to be a gorgeous day (and possibly one of the last good ones we’ll get this year), you should eat more vegetables and Lake Union Park is totally rad- what kind of excuse can you possibly have for NOT stopping by?

Best of all, the market lasts from 12:00 – 7:00 pm, so you actually have time to go after work.  See you there!
