When you come to the market this week, be sure to stop at the BrokersGroup booth to say thank you for supporting your local market. This local business is one of our major sponsors. They are at the market this week to answer any questions and to be of service to you.
The music this week is Sequim's Cort Armstrong on steel guitar and Sean Divine playing a smoking harmonica. They play soul-stomping country blues brought from the heart of Appalachia to the Olympics.
Ellen Olga Lloyd became addicted to working with fiber in 1992 when her sister introduced her to felting. When she and her husband, John, moved to the Olympic Peninsula in 1997, they opened a cottage industry, Olga's Yurt of Fiber, to process llama, alpaca and wool for local spinners and weavers. She has been a member of the Sequim Open Aire Market since 1997 and can be found there most Saturdays busily working away, demonstrating her skill. She always is happy to share with others what she has learned and loves to help others get started working with wool. Stop by and see her at the market to purchase one of her unique creations, some roving for spinning, to visit or to sign up for classes.
For those of you who have not tried Viaggio Pizza, it is a must. This is a wood-fired pizza with colorful toppings that are locally grown. Come see the oven on wheels and watch your pizza come out sizzling hot. Viaggio Pizza is run by John Bridger and David Johnson, who are relocating from Bremerton and looking for leads on a rental house. Catch them on Saturdays or on Wednesdays from 2-6 p.m.
The community booths will be hosted by the Grand Olympic Chorus and the Audubon River Center.
