Week of October 18 - Scavenger Hunt at the Harvest Market

Although Harvest Fest is virtual, the Lake Stevens Farmers Market's Harvest Market is still going strong, Saturday, October 23, 11 am - 4 pm at North Cove Park. As an essential service, the market continues to provide a low-barrier entry point for beginning farmers, stimulates our local economy, and increases access to fresh, nutritious food that in turn, supports a healthy community.  

Join us for the Harvest Market Scavenger Hunt!  Click on the photo or link below to print out the scavenger hunt sheet, bring it to the Harvest Market, and explore the Harvest Market and North Cove Park to complete.  The first 150 completed scavenger sheets turned in at the City of Lake Stevens booth at the Harvest Market will receive a shoppers' bag with candy and fun items from the Lake Stevens Police Department. Limit one shoppers' bag per participating child.  There will be a very limited number of printed sheets to pick up at the City's booth, so we advise you to print yours off before you visit the Harvest Market on Saturday, October 23.
