The steamship Virginia V is 90 years old next year. All who built and ran her in the early days of her Mosquito Fleet career are dead now. The vast majority of folks who walked her decks over the years have passed on as well–most of them, peacefully. However, there are a few contentious souls who linger in the afterlife wandering the ships passageways late at night. Come in Halloween costume and learn the chilling tales of ghost ships and see if you can find evidence of recent hauntings.
The market offering will be pretty much the same lineup as last week. Fresh Fall veggies (Squash, Kale, Root Vegetables, Garlic, Cabbage, Gourmet Potatoes, Onions, Beets, Sweet Corn, Pears & Apples, etc.). Fish Tacos, Tamales fried beans for lunch. Sample wonderful Olive Oil and Balsamics from 11 Olives. Munch on Gluten Free baked goods from Maria’s. Seattle Bagel Bakery makes addictive Bagel Chips too. Come talk to us about our new FarmBoat gift crates for the holidays!
Attendance was pretty sparse last week. This may be the last market of the year due to the increased construction activity around South Lake Union. The lack of parking and reduced access to the park has made it more of a challenge to get visitors. Despite the appearance, Lake Union Park is still open so bring your friends and co-workers! It’s a great place to get away from the modern (and sometimes annoying) buzz of the city. Have Lunch, Relax, Learn Some History, and get stuff for Dinner.
Always FREE Admission!
Every Thursday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
