Food and junk are two things that make me happy. (No surprise, I know). This weekend is Pig Out in the Park in Spokane and the Funky Junk sale in Sandpoint.
I rarely need an excuse to eat and hunt for treasures, but if you need one: it is the end of summer—schools are starting up and the weather is marking the change in season—it is time for a last hurrah of summer.
Pig Out in the Park:
Over 50 food vendors will be at Pig Out all weekend—31 are local, Spokane food business. My old favorite is Taste of India—I love their food. A new favorite is Mommy G’s Grilled Cheese truck. All of their sandwiches look good, but my heart belongs to the Sammy’s Sammich. Cheddar, smoked bacon, and avocado? Yes, please.
Pig Out is an experience--take some time and spend a few hours in Riverfront Park. To make your trip down to the park more green, why not bring your own utensils and a drink in a mason jar? Both are easy to tuck into a purse or backpack and make the event a bit more sustainable.
Pig Out in the Park runs until September 5th and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Funky Junk Antique Show:
I’ve introduced myself to Funky Junk Jennifer and she is delightful. The big Funky Junk show is this Saturday (today) and Sunday in Sandpoint. If Farm Chicks has been overwhelming (or overpriced) for you, Funky Junk is the answer. I never come away from their shows empty handed, but I also don’t break the bank, either.
Funky Junk runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is only $2 and is good both days.
Location: 621 Oak Street at the corner of 6th Ave and Oak.
