I am perfectly fine with welcoming fall but there is one thing that I will miss this fall/winter, and that is the Puyallup Farmers Market. Luckily we have another month to enjoy the fresh and locally grown fruits/vegetables, plants and other fun vendors. However, fall weather is here so be sure to run into Anthem Coffee Shop for a beverage to keep you warm as you wander thru the market and enjoy the limited time left this year.

Saturday, September 19th, the Farmers Market will have an extra special booth set up giving our local peeps in Puyallup the opportunity to show appreciation and give thanks to our Men and Women in Blue. Operation Thank Our Police is set up to collect signatures on thank yous for all of our very brave men and women of the
