At the West Seattle Farmers’ Market: ‘The Sallys,’ and the Kiwanis

November 20, 2011 at 11:15 am | In Kiwanis Club of West Seattle, West Seattle Farmers' Market, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Though it’s not out of the 30s yet, it’s sunny, and it’s a lively morning at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market. Above, City Councilmembers Sally Clark and Sally Bagshaw, making another stop on their citywide conversation tour as “The Sallys.” They’ll pour you a free cup of Rockridge Orchards cider (while supplies last!). As for topics, you don’t have to stick to these, but – Clark chairs the Committee on the Built Environment, which tackles issues like zoning and development, and Bagshaw chairs the Parks Committee. Meantime, you’ll also find the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle at the market today, promoting their upcoming holiday Pancake Breakfast:

It’s 7-11 am Saturday, December 3rd, at the Masonic Hall (40th/Edmunds) and you can buy your tickets at their booth today for the discount price of $5 adults, $3 kids (adults will be $6 at the door). Santa photos are included in the price – and you’re asked to bring new, unwrapped Toys for Tots donations.

  1. We had a talk, Sally Clark and I today at the market I of course was direct and pretty vocal of my opposition of the density on the way to West Seattle. She understood, with so much available land (in “The Triangle”)and inevitable population boom they got to call home somewhere. I would like to know more about her and how she plans on helping this area out with the growth. I left with an overall positive impression of her.

  2. DF, I too visited Sally Clark yesterday with just the opposite take on construction. Some of the DPD regulations are inflexible to the point of nonsense.

    The West Seattle zoning density increases have been encouraged for the last couple of decades.
    They have brought back life to much of West Seattle and put it back on the map. They have brought many positive things to our peninsula that many of us old time West Seatleites sometimes forget. Do you remember when the West Seattle Junction was languishing in decline? Do you remember when there were virtually no fine restaurants and bars here? Do you remember when we had no community centers, no community organizations, no state of the art athletic fields, no commercial fitness clubs, no new parks, no new schools, no new grocery stores, no bicycle shops, the old Westwood, the old High Point?
    Density has been a driving force for all of these.

  3. Good point, I guess I just don’t like seeing all the change and liked the small town undiscovered and well semi delinquent days now gone. Like the Blew Eagle along spokane street.
