Cheese Festival, U-Dist Street Fair, Celebrate Norway

Lots going on this weekend! 
Don’t forget the Cheese Festival today and tomorrow at Pike Place Market.  More than 200 cheeses available for tasting.  And there’s more!  See the site for all the info. 
The first of the summer street fairs is this weekend.  The University District Street Fair is also today and tomorrow.  You’ll find it covering  about ten blocks along "The Ave" (University Way).  For those who planned to attend the U-Dist Farmers’ Market this morning, you’ll be out of luck.  They take a break for the street fair.  On the other hand there’s all kinds of street fair food to check out…. 
And finally, today is Norwegian Independence day which will be celebrated in our own Scandinavian community, Ballard.  The festivities start at 10:00 and culminate with a parade at 4:00.

    Actually, the farmers market was open this morning. It was about half the usual size, but all of the main vendors were there (Skagit, Sea Breeze, Asparagus…)

    What?  I was wrong?  How could that have happened?  :-)  I could have sworn I saw a notice they were closed for the fair…. must have been having a flashback to prior years.  Glad I didn\’t keep you away from it!
