The Queen Anne Farmer's Market ran from June 2nd to October 6th this year and I personally enjoyed it this year. According to their website, we had some pretty amazing stats this year on Queen Anne Hill:
As the 2011 market season comes to a close, we thank each and every one of you – our sponsors, local businesses, patrons, vendors and volunteers who were instrumental in producing a very successful season. QAFM is a unique community-managed market and your support shows what we can accomplish together. Despite getting a late start this year, the market continued to thrive and to grow. We, as a whole, provided access to Washington farmers and their fresh, healthy food, hosted food education programs for children and adults, offered a rich variety of ready-to-eat meals and a diversity of free musical programs, all while being a gathering place for our community and greater Seattle. Our impact on the local economy is substantial and we are proud of our results this season.
  • Hosted 41 vendors (59% farmers/41% prepared food)
  • Average customers per market – 2513 (74% increase over 2010)
  • Average vendor sales per market – $22, 231 (9.0% increase over 2010)
  • Three jobs created and filled by QA residents
  • 25 volunteers donated 299 hours.
  • 1857 pounds of food donated to Trinity Methodist Saturday Soup Kitchen and Queen Anne Methodist.
  • Donated booth space 21 times to 13 non-profit organizations
  • Introduced EBT-matching program to double the value of food stamps
  • New web site designed and content re-created
  • New Facebook site introduced (450 “friends” reached in 4 months)
  • New Twitter feed introduced (225 followers secured in 4 months)
  • Hosted 30 chefs and food educators
  • Brought in 21 musicians for 29 performances
  • Featured two Tae Kwon Do and Yoga classes, and a community Talent Show
Pretty fabulous that Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood can boast such wonderful accomplishments when it is just one of many farmer's markets across Seattle neighborhoods! Queen Anne Hill is a great place to live! If you are interested in living in this neighborhood, then you should definitely check out Queen Anne homes for sale right now!

About Me: 

Seattle real estate has been a huge part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home.  Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.

Move up Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine!  I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week.   Other aspects of Seattle real estate that I adore include Queen Anne Real Estate,Wallingford Real EstateBallard Real EstateGreen Lake Real EstateLaurelhurst Real EstateMagnolia Real Estate,and Seattle Waterfront Real Estate

Something that has captured my attention is all the Halloween events around the area. Not sure what I was thinking, but times for many are challenging financially and it's great to see so many events going on for kids that are free, safe, and fun! Happy Halloween, Courtney!
