Will A Farmers’ Market Make Mercer Island More Like Capitol Hill and Fremont?

Of course we want a farmers market on Mercer Island. Lots of places have them- there are 37 in King County, according to the citizen’s group organizing ours.

But I can’t help but wonder: if we get a market, like Capitol Hill, Fremont, and Ballard, will Mercer Island become more like those neighborhoods?

Will we erect a statue of a famous communist and host a naked Solstice parade like Fremont?

Will we begin loitering and looking for local singles scenes?

Will someone start an MI-ku blog in the spirit of Hillku?

Is not defined by the edge
But by the middle.

Will we drink better coffee?

Will we get a radical street fest like Ballard?

Who knows what the future will hold. Personally, I hope it holds fresh vegetables and delicious jams, come whatever else may.

  1. Nah, but the parking lot will probably be jammed with the SUVs, Hummers, and BMW 5-series of all those environmentally-conscious Mercer Island shoppers doing their part to support local farmers and community sustainable agriculture. 🙂
