Last Saturday, islanders visited the Village Green under blue skies to check out the bounty of fresh produce, artisan-made foodstuffs, crafts and other locally-produced items on offer at the Vashon Farmer’s Market.
It was the second Saturday market of the season, with a number of COVID-19 safety protocols in place, including “one-way” shopping that kept shoppers moving in the same direction through the market’s various spaces. The market will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday in March. In lieu of shopping in person, islanders can also visit vashonfarmersmarket.org to find locally-grown delicacies and made-by-hand wares.
Also, last Saturday, some islanders and a few folks who looked like visitors wandered through town, window shopping or stopping in local businesses. Just south of Vashon Pharmacy, it was impossible not to notice the aromatic outdoor grilling underway at Gravy, where acclaimed local chef Dre Neeley was flipping his famous Trifecta Burgers in front of his eatery. It was the third Saturday in a row Neeley has set up his grill; previously, he has served duck and shrimp fried rice and Philly Cheesesteaks.
