Let me take you to the Market

Lovely fruits and veggie vendors are back in numbers - and each stall is a little different, and the picking is fresh and inspiring.

It was a very hot one today, so the Shave Ice, Hawaiian style, was very popular - like with Pam and Lee Chiccoine right here. Uh, Pam - can I get a bite of that?

Emily Garland, reporter for our local rag, The Renton Reporter, was showing her Renton love in her T-shirt and getting some fresh photos and fresh goodies.

The lovely vendor with the Russian baked delicacies is back this year - heaven help my hips!

Darrell Westover of Westover Farm down Maple Valley way is back again this year starting off with some fresh salad greens and a big smile.

The Harmony Kings from Federal Way were a lot of fun and well, just plain cute. They even had a couple of youngsters joining them, preparing the way for future singing generations.

Friends Jenny and Jerry both had armfuls of delicate sweet pea flowers and were taking a spin around the crowded Piazza. The turn out today looked good.

I love that you can also find plants for the garden at the Farmer's Market. From this viewpoint, the Piazza grass looks transformed into a colorful garden.

The opening ceremonies had our council prez Randy Corman (though I sheepishly just missed them!) and with him is Rich Zwicker, council member, Randy's fair wife, Kathy and also Don Bressler of the Renton Technical Institute (you know Don is the head honcho up there).

The neighboring children's school on Burnett lead the kids out for a turn around the market - and they all send you out a great big Hi and say - let's make it a date for next week!
