Glenrose summer market planned

The Glenrose community is sponsoring a summer market to gauge interest in a new neighborhood farmers market.

The event is 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 21 at 37th Avenue and Fancher Road.

The Glenrose area had been a farming and orchard area and organizers of the market hope to rekindle interest in local foods, art and music. The market is sponsored by two nonprofit groups, the Glenrose Association and Community Solutions Northwest.

Organizer Barbara Baumgarten said if there is enough interest they could continue markets this year, or start a weekly market next season.
