  • The egregious separation of immigrant families: What can we do?

    The egregious separation of immigrant families: What can we do?

    The policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border was outrageous and tragic. Now that policy has changed, and we are not sure what the impact will be or when families will be reunited. We have heard from many community members, and we will be passing along, through Facebook, information from Northwest Immigrant Rights Project about the situation and actions we can take. On Friday, June 22, over 100 community members at the Phinney Farmers Market wrote messages to officials, both national and local, who can have an impact.

  • See you at the Market!

    See you at the Market!

    Environmentalist Bill McKibbon says that we have 10 times the number of conversations at farmers markets as we do in regular grocery stores!...One of the most important elements for health and happiness is interactions with other people. Most of us go to the market because we care about our health in terms of eating fresh, organic food.  And of course, of course, that’s important. But “social capital” is just as important, if not more so....
