It’s time for another Family Day at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market this coming Sunday, July 31st! Of course, the farmers market is always a family-friendly spot for one and all, but this Sunday’s festivities will feature lots of fun extras for young and old alike.

Lake Forest Park Mayor Jeff Johnson and others will be greeting folks and passing out goodies in the City’s special tent while the community’s Public Works, Police Officers, and Firemen will be giving kids an up-close-and-personal look at a street sweeper, police motorcycle, and firetruck. (The firetruck is scheduled from 11 AM to 1 PM and the motorcycle will be onsite much of the day, but exact appearance times may vary slightly.)

Live music will also fill the market with “Seattle’s totally relaxed ukulele musicians” Strum, appearing from noon to 3 PM. Plus we’ll start the day at 10:15 with a special performance from gifted singer/songwriter (and local high schooler) Sarah Holman making a return engagement after her successful performance at Third Place Commons earlier this year. Other busking musicians will be around as well, ensuring a day full of music and song!

For the Pokémon GO obsessed in your family, be sure to bring your devices to catch the local Pokémon. (Just don’t wander into traffic, please!)

While enjoying the day’s offerings, grab a tasty, hot lunch from Vespucci Pizza, Patty Pan, or Drummin’ Up Wontons. Or enjoy a sweet treat like Whidbey Island Ice Cream, Seattle Pops, or Classic Kettle Corn. Yum! Of course, like every week, the market will also be filled with all your staples including fresh from the farm produce, meat, fish, eggs, and cheese.

The LFP Farmers Market is presented by Third Place Commons, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering real community in real space. The market is open from 10am to 3pm every Sunday through October 16th and takes place in the parking lot of LFP Town Center adjacent to City Hall at the intersection of Bothell Way and Ballinger Way.
