Where do I begin? Blue Collar Dog Treats is leaving the Anacortes Farmers Market. I spent a great five years there but the opportunity to create and grow a new Market at a sensational location has presented itself and I just can't pass it up. With two good friends, Kate and Janet, I've spent the last several weeks finding high quality vendors to join us at the SKAGIT VALLEY SATURDAY MARKET at the Farmhouse Restaurant, a local dining destination. It has left little or no time for much of anything else but I couldnt stand the cobwebs growing on this blog, so I'll try to get back into the groove here.
The Farmhouse Restaurant is located out on the 'flats' in the heart of the Skagit Valley, amid fields of daffodils, tulips, and vegetable crops. We'll have more farmers joining us as the crops come on. The Farmhouse is where Skagit county locals go for a hearty, family style dinners so the location is perfect for a Saturday Market. Centrally located between Anacortes, Burlington, MtVernon and La Conner, everyone will be headed in our direction at some point every Saturday. Everyone- customers and vendors alike are excited about the location.
