Celebrate local vines and vineyards at the Proctor Farmers Market’s Vineyard & Orchard Day, with special discounts on fruit, ciders, hard ciders, and wine.
July signals the arrival of the first stone fruits at the market, and Martin Family Orchards and RP Guerrero Organic Farm will have great deals on their Bing and Rainier cherries. For those who like fresh apple cider from the farm, Lattin’s Country Cider Mill & Farm will offer special pricing on both their apple and berry ciders.
Wine and Hard Cider tastings and discounted sales will also be available from local, family-owned Dragon’s Head Cider and Stina’s Cellars. Dragon’s Head Cider features quality hard ciders made with apples and pears that come from their very own orchard on Vashon Island. Stina’s Cellar’s offers a fine selection of boutique wines, produced in Lakewood, with grapes sourced from Washington’s preeminent vineyards.
Be sure and stop by Green Heart Smoothie for a special event price on a freshly blended drink made with raw, organic, local orchard fruits and greens, and then check out the cooking demo hosted by Market staffers “Ginger & Dill” who will provide free samples and recipes for “Spiralized Zucchini with Pesto Sauce.” Market goers can enjoy a snack or lunch in café seating, while listening to lively entertainment presented by talented musicians Spare Thyme (9-11 a.m.) and Burgundy Pearl (12-2p.m.).
