SATURDAY MARKET 4-12-14

I usually don’t post a blog on Saturday’s but I’m making an exception today. I though you might enjoy walking around the Coupeville Saturday Market with me. It runs every Saturday during mid spring to mid fall from 10:00 to 2:00. If you are ever in town on a Saturday and want something fun to do come to the “Market”.

Here’s an overview of the field.

There are all sorts of things to look at and buy along with some entertainment. These guys were singing Sea Shanties for everyone to enjoy.

On any given Saturday you’ll find vegetables, fruit, soap, woodworking, crafts, flowers and plants, purses, food and much more. I’ve downsized the following photos to save some band width but if you click on them they’ll open up to full size.

I like this young woman who pulls this large trailer full of salmon and other fish products behind her bike. It takes her about two hours just to get to the market.

Willowood Farm pulls this trailer full of wonderful vegetables with this really old Ford tractor.

Just to tide you over it’s always fun to get a bag of freshly popped Kettlecorn with some caramel mixed in, yum!

  1. Thanks for the bonus offering on the first day of our Farmers Market, Ken! I am happy to have “met” you a few months ago through your blog photos and comments. You love Coupeville and our island as much as my husband and I do! You have been in my prayers for good health, and it sounds like you are doing well. Maybe we’ll run into each other along 9th Street one day. God bless you.

    • Thank you for the kind words Catherine, they are appreciated. My wife and I really do love Coupeville. We moved here seven years ago to retire and it’s one of the best things we’ve ever done.

      I walk a lot of different routes but more often than not I on the short piece of 9th Street between the end of Front Street to Perkins around 8:00. I hope to see you to.
