(SKYKOMISH, WA) -- The first Skykomish Open Air Market of the spring and summer season will be held Saturday, May 11th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm in Skykomish, Washington.
Great Northern Cascade miniature 7-1/2 gauge railroad that now has over 2,000 feet of track
The location is Depot Park, a grassy picnic area along Railroad Avenue in Skykomish’s historical district.
New for this year is the impressive Great Northern and Cascade miniature 7-1/2 gauge railroad that now has over 2,000 feet of track and more loops to follow as volunteer labor permits.
The railroad is now open each weekend this summer with free train rides for children and adults around the developing Skykomish Town Center highlighted by the restored old Skykomish Depot and new landscaping.
Visitors are invited to come and take in the charm of this historical railroad town, ride the train, shop the businesses, and on the second Saturday of each month, May through September to walk the promenade of Open Air Market vendors along Depot Park on Railroad Avenue.
There you will find a variety of jewelry, hand-turned wooden bowls by award winning wood crafter Fred Abeles along with rag rugs, photography, bird houses and feeders, sewn and quilted items from cup cozies to Kindl Fire covers, crocheted rag rugs, homemade laundry soap, items shaped with burls, driftwood, candles and many other unique one-of-a-kind handmade items as well as seasonal garden produce and Eastern Washington fruits.
And two businesses have just opened in Skykomish in the east end of Maloney's General store: Skykomish Toot Sweet, a delightful train-oriented candy and gift store, and a quaint one-chair hair salon named Amy's Hair Depot.
The Skykomish Open Air Markets are held on the second Saturday of each month, May to September.
Open Air Market dates for 2013 are: May 11, June 8, July 13, August 10th, and September 14th from 11:00 to 3:00.
