Farmers market ready to shine at Les Gove

I would like to invite the Auburn community to the opening – and the ensuing 17 weeks – of the Auburn International Farmers Market on Sunday.

This year, after nine years at the Sound Transit Center, the market welcomes shoppers to Les Gove Park. It is hoped that the new location will draw more people and make the experience better for vendors and shoppers alike.

Among the attractions at the park: a new restroom facility, kids play area and the Spray Playground.

I have been a market volunteer since it opened in 2009. It has been a great experience – the chance to buy fresh fruits, vegetables and other food products and quality crafts; enjoyable entertainment; getting to know the vendors; working with other dedicated volunteers and Market managers – and, the best part, seeing old friends (and making new ones) from week to week.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday at the market at Les Gove Park. Kiwanis will be serving breakfast and lunch.
