Summer is quickly drawing to a close– Labor Day is here! Keep in mind that traffic will be iffy over the weekend. People will be heading out for their last vacation hurrah Friday and returning Monday. Bumbershoot will be ongoing at Seattle Center all weekend. Blues for Food Fest will be playing over at Magnuson Park. The Evergreen State Fair, in Monroe, runs through Monday. The WSDOT says to follow the Know Before You Go policy this Labor Day weekend and utilize their mobile app, Twitter profile and Facebook page to stay connected to current traffic conditions.

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning on Mercer Island, so let’s take advantage of the sunny weather while it’s still here! Looking ahead, the farmer’s market season ends in mid October, and then reopens for one Sunday in November before Thanksgiving. Mark your calenders so you don’t miss out!

This week, as the transition into fall begins, I want to feature beverages that are loved all year round. The following vendors are all at the farmer’s market, and are definitely worth the visit!

Wilridge Winery: Known for being Seattle’s original winery, it is the oldest continuously operated winery since its opening in the 1980s. They have over a dozen wines to choose from and information on tastings and events here.

Middlefork Roasters: Raise your hand if you’re a coffee lover! This coffee roasting company has 6 incredible blends. So just when the kids are gearing up for back to school, you’ll have the caffeine you need to get through all the early mornings and late nights right there with them.

Piccola Wine Company: This winery is taking a new approach to their packaging, providing reusable and sustainable solutions. They have wine on tap, and 1.5 liter totes for portable ease! Check out their website here.

Shen Zen Tea: Everything is by hand. This tea label even hand throws their own line of pots and mugs on their own pottery wheel. The amount of thought and care that the two founders have put into their business is unbelieveable, and their tea is incredible. Check them out at the market or here.

MI Farmer’s Market, Sunday 8/17


Good morning, Islanders! The summer is at the beginning of its end, which means back-to-school is almost here. We have a couple sunny weekends left, so take advantage of it before the weather turns. This Sunday the market is open as usual, with music by the Folichon Cajun Band and painting at the kids booth.

My favorite vendor for this week is Camp Robber Jam, with an assortment of flavors to choose from. I’ve always been a fan of jams and jellies because they allow us to take summer flavors into winter with us! Check them out today at the market, or here on their blog.

Originally posted on Weekly Property Report:

This week made clear that there are two different markets out there. The first, well-priced and desirable homes, are flying off the shelves with multiple offers allowing sellers to dictate terms to their liking. The second, homes priced at the top of the market or not in turn-key condition, are struggling with little showing activity and lengthening market times. Right now, more than ever, the rewards for sellers come from solid home prepping for sale and pricing right.
