Friday Harbor Permanent Farmers Market-Update

Anna participated in another charrette last Saturday for the Friday Harbor Permanent Farmers Market at the Brickworks site. The current charrette team includes architects, designers, landscape designers,  San Juan Agricultural Guild members, neighbors, and other property owners.

This charrette was focused on the site. Richard Hobbs, FAIA, laid out the vision for the meeting, which include defining "event facility" and "farmers market", how the space can work as both and be connected to the greater community. Participants were asked not just to show how the site should look and how it will work, but the experience that one should have while in the space.

For more information on the project, see our previous blog post.

We have been blogging more recently about farming, with Anna's involvement in the Farmer's Market visioning and my neighborhood's development of a shared garden site on a commercial property in our First Hill neighborhood. Below are a few of my favorite books about food politics:
