Letter from Ed Barnes:

Nearly 10,000 small coho frye were planted into Boeing Creek just below the Seattle Golf dam during the first quarter of 2015.  Hopefully these fish will survive in the stream until next spring (2016).  At that point in time they will then journey out into Puget Sound.  From Puget Sound they will migrate towards northern Vancouver Island and southern Alaska.  The frye will mature over the course of two years and then return…. to Boeing Creek!

Hindrances to these fish, while they are in Boeing Creek over the next 12 months, will be cutthroat trout and silty water, such as what was experienced last month when a decent slide sent a lot of silt into the stream.

Thanks again for the opportunity to enhance and restore a salmon run in Boeing Creek / Reserve ‘O’.

Shoreline Farmers’ Market:

Our 4th season kicks off June 20th and is every Saturday from 10am – 3pm until October 3. Please mark the dates on your calendar

We are very excited about our NEW LOCATION. We’ll be in the Sears upper parking lot next to Central Market. The market address is:  15300 Westminster Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133, (near the corner of 155th & Aurora). This is a busy place on weekends and we estimate 2,000 shoppers per Saturday. Please help us spread the word about the new location.

We have 30+ vendors signed up so far and we have extended the vendor application deadline to May 15 — please spread this news (we’ll do a Facebook post shortly that you can share). We are looking for farmers, plus local breweries, cideries or wineries, and accept a wide variety of vendors. See our website for more information:  www.shorelinefarmersmarket.org

It’s going to be a good time! In addition to our farmers, we’ll have food trucks, cooking demos, and local Shoreline businesses vending as well as buskers and bands throughout the season. We’ll have games and activities for kids too, and the new location is easy to reach since its near Aurora bus lines and the interurban trail. Plus, parking will be plentiful!

This year we have formed a Market Advisory Committee.  Kevin Osborn from the Council of Neighborhoods Board and Hopelink is serving on this committee, as well as representatives of the community, our vendors and the City of Shoreline. The purpose of the committee is to provide community input and to work to support the operations of the market. Since we’ve had a great response and have 15 members at this time, we are not accepting to members currently. If you have ideas to engage the neighborhood associations and community members more directly in the market, please contact me or Kevin.

I look forward to working with you to make our Shoreline Farmer’s Market a success. You can reach me at manager@shorelinefarmersmarket.org or 425-802-3076.

All my best,
