Roasted Chestnuts, Special Farmers Market This Thursday

Join Sustainable West Seattle and the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance at Junction Plaza Park this Thursday, December 22, from 5 pm to 8 pm.  We’ll be set up in the park for a special West Seattle Farmers Market event.

SWS will be working with the West Seattle Farmers Market folks to hand out small containers of roasted chestnuts.  We’ve tested several recipes and after a series of kitchen experiments, we now have the right formula to give you an amazing flavorful treat.  Come on down and get your bag of roasted chestnuts, shop the market, enjoy the Junction Christmas Tree, and celebrate the holidays with us.

Sunday, December 25 and January 1 are holidays so the West Seattle Farmers Market will NOT be open and the farmers and vendors will be taking the day off.  Because that’s a long time between fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, breads, and the rest of the great items at the market, the Farmers Market Alliance is holding this special event to celebrate the holidays and to give the farmers one last chance to market their produce and foods.

Also, whoo-hoo – December 22, Thursday, is Winter Solstice.  Starting the next day, the days begin to get longer.
