I'm not a farmer, but I play one on the internetCOMMUNITY MEETING FOR 6th Ave MARKET NEXT MONDAY ...
I'm not a farmer, but I play one on the internet. You would have to look long and hard to find someone less knowledgeable about gardening and farming than me. Somehow though, I’ve gotten dragged (willingly) into a couple of projects that involve those skills. Fortunately, my role has more to do with data management and writing about what other people know than anything I personally know.
On Thursday, May 15th, the Broadway Market will open. There’s still lots to do. If you’d like to volunteer a bit of your time and energy to help get The Market running and keep it running, drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s also a place to sign up for our newsletter and volunteer opportunities at our web site.
The Broadway Market is looking for street musicians. There
is an actual performance stage, which has been booked for the season. What
we’re looking for now are musicians who would be willing to set up in a more
casual setting, busking on a street corner, like minstrels, for atmosphere and
ambiance (and yes, for tips). If you would enjoy making some noise on our
downtown streets and getting some public exposure, contact me at email@example.com.
Poets and dancers are also welcome.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about localism, supporting local businesses and buying locally-made products. The Tacoma Farmers Market is proud to be a big part of that movement, helping to bring people, commerce, music, and fun to the streets of

|Thanks for helping to promote this new market and the Tacoma Farmers Markets in general. Now, more than ever, we should all be buying local produce and supporting these folks who are dedicated to growing healthy food for us, in environmentally sound ways. My husband and I have played a lot of music at the markets and gotten to know so many vendors, and they're truly special people who have the right priorities. That's why I put their link on my blog Good Life Northwest, and will continue to spread the word about this great feature of our community.
