Burien is a little city on the south side of Seattle. It's the main shopping area around the area, hosting some staple stores as Safeway, RiteAid, Starbucks, Trader Joe's, BigLots!, Fred Meyers, etc. You can also find the post office, public library, service stations, restaurants galore, sewing machine repair shops, thrift stores, car dealerships and everything else under the sun here.
Today, we went into Burien to check out the farmers market that we saw advertised on the street. The Burien farmers market is located on SW 152nd St. and 5th Place SW. It is pretty near the Burien Public Library in the Burien Town Square. It is open every Thursday from 11 am - 6 pm.
There are a load of booths here - from handmade jewelry, dolls, and paintings to honey, produce, and freshly baked bread. There are also a good handful of food trucks off to the side where you can also find outdoor seating.
The Burien Farmers Market sits right next to the Burien Town Square Park, where you can find loads of grass to chill on, a lot of paved side walks to chalk draw on and a wonderful mini fountain for your kids to splash around in.
Visiting the farmers market to day was a really good half a day of fun. We got to have lunch here, shop around, meet some new people, sun tan in the lovely Burien sun…and just enjoy life. It truly felt like the perfect summer afternoon.
It's good being back in the Pacific North West!
