This Sunday is the perfect time to start preparing for your Thanksgiving feast and to get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping thanks to the return of the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market and Holiday Crafts Fair!
Start making your Thanksgiving dinner shopping list now so that you can hit the farmers market Sunday to pick-up all the freshest and best in Washington grown and produced fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, and more. Fall always brings lots of delicious seasonal produce like apples, artichokes, arugula, beets, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, garlic, pears, potatoes, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, winter squash, zucchini, and so much more. So whatever your seasonal favorites, look for them at the market!
Did you order a turkey from Hidden River? Make sure you make it to the market to pick it up! Of course, Hidden River will have lots of other meat choices as well to keep your family well-fed over the long holiday weekend, and Wilson Fish will also be on-hand to serve up your chosen catch-of-the-day. You can even pick up a gorgeous holiday themed floral arrangement to dress your table in style!
You’ll also want to beat the rush of Black Friday by shopping at the Third Place Commons Holiday Craft Fair featuring the unique works of over 30 gifted Washington crafters and artisans. You’ll be dazzled by a beautiful array of handcrafted works and sure to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list (maybe even yourself) at the fair.
Offerings will include handcrafted jewelry, watches, pens, home décor, toys, and holiday novelties. Indeed, from fine arts to fabric arts and wearables to potions, lotions, and notions, the Crafts Fair will truly have something for everyone!
The Holiday Crafts Fair will also include a special performance by the International Folk Voice Band ushering in the season of good cheer with spirited folk music (including lots of your favorites) from around the world. The band will perform from noon to 3 PM.
The Farmers Market will take place in its usual outdoor location (in front of the Professional Building at Lake Forest Park Town Center) if the weather permits. In case of inclement weather, it will move inside to Third Place Commons on the upper level of Town Center. The Holiday Crafts Fair will take place in the lower lobby of Town Center. Both the farmers market* and crafts fair will take place from 10am to 3pm. (*Note that the farmers market will end one hour early at 2 PM if moved inside to the Commons.)
And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the final fall market and crafts fair on Sunday, December 18th! (More details to come.)
