Two Pre-Thanksgiving Weekend Events

1) The next MaDCAP neighborhood cleanup will be Saturday, November 17th, beginning at 10:00 am and ending at 11:30. The positive changes in the neighborhood of late allow for a later start time and an earlier finish as we've found there just isn't as much to clean up. We will gather in the open space behind the Prince of Wales apartment building at 1818 20th Ave. Starbuck's coffee will be available beginning at 9:40. The MaDCAP cleanup is designed to bring together committed neighbors interested in bringing about positive change to the area. Being a presence on the street while keeping the neighborhood clean is our goal. We hope you can take the time to join us.

2) Sunday November 18th is the LAST Broadway Farmers' Market of the 2007 Season. Here's a list of what will be available.

The Broadway Farmers Market takes place every Sunday, 11 am - 3 pm, from May 13 through Nov. 18, in the lot behind the Bank of America at Broadway & E. Thomas. The market is operated by the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening Washington's small family farms.

Hello Market Shoppers! This Sunday is the LAST MARKET DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING – and the last market day of the 2007 season. Stock up with winter squashes, potatoes, apples, onions and other long-storing produce (keep in a cool, dark cupboard or cellar – check out the links below if you’re inspired to learn more and plan on saving money by buying in bulk from local farmers).

There are plenty of winter greens and vegetables to choose from, for side dishes, raw salads and soups (and remember, left-over soup freezes easily for use at a later date).

Other great stuff to get: local honey, pastries, fresh pasta, delicious salmon, cheeses, meats and eggs (YES, we’ll have eggs on Sunday!). If you don’t see what you’re looking for, be sure to ask at the market info tent – market staff are knowledgeable and it can be surprisingly easy to miss something, even when you’re sure you’ve seen every market stall.
