Old 6th Avenue had a Farm…EE I EE I O

Okay, well they don’t really have a farm but what they do have is one fabulous Farmer’s Market!  Now of course I may be biased as I do share the same pea patch with the awesome Prez of the 6th Ave. Business District, Mr. David Printz, however, I also am a big supporter of everything local in our wonderful community and of course around Tacoma.

Having said this, I am excited to tell everyone about the 2011 6th Avenue Farmer’s Market Harvest Festival Fundraiser!  YEEEE HAWWWW!  Now I don’t know about you but every time I hear the word ‘festival’ I think beer.  Well, I actually think beer most of the time but enough about me. 

Our locally famous pub and eatery, E-9, will be presenting specials on handcrafted beers which are not to be missed.  There will also be a knock down battle between local restaurants in a chili cook-off and home-made soups from our local farmers and vendors.  But wait, there’s more!  They are bringing  back the pie eating contest!!  Puyallup Fair, eat your heart out! (or your pie).

Mark this date on your calendars:  Tuesday, September 27th from 4 – 7 p.m. on North Pine St. between 6th Ave and 7th Ave.

Tickets are only $10!!!  How do you get one?  Contact us or visit http://www.tacomafarmersmarket.com/calendar

This is the very last Farmer’s Market of the year for 6th Ave so come on out and show some love for the people who make it happen.  Oh, and maybe buy a carrot or two and some squash and zucchinis, or homemade apple butter or chocolate covered bacon, or fresh oysters and crabs, some bling, or lavender seeds or maybe some killer cookies, a blanket, some corn, peas (if you really want to), jams, jellies, spices, fresh handmade cheese, some more carrots, a dill plant, root vegetables, fresh caught salmon or clams, fresh-cut valley flowers, then take a long beer break and buy buy buy!!

See you there! 

Hugs and Carrots.

Ever Wonder…. WHAT’S HAPPENING IN TACOMA??

Ok, ok! I know you’re used to snappy posts about what we’ve been up to Around Tacoma but it occurred to me recently… if I didn’t already LOVE Tacoma and all the cool stuff we find to do around here, what then?  So I went looking and boy, did I find plenty!  Right here on the internet!

I know, you’re saying “Naw, you really found information on the internet?”. Really, I did!

Besides all of the fantastic blogs published by the many opinionated Tacomans out there, I found a plethora (cool, I got to use that word in a sentence) of super stuff about our city and all around Pierce County.

I will never have to say “Hmmm… what is there to do this weekend?” again and neither will you! Here are just a few links to local pages….
