In The Junction now: Sophia’s Lemonade Stand, River Farm at Farmers’ Market

(SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE: Family friend Aaron says Sophia’s stand raised more than $1,500!)

12:51 PM: Went to the West Seattle Farmers’ Market to check in on two benefits we’ve mentioned in recent days – and found both very busy! Above, Sophia’s Lemonade Stand outside KeyBank at California/Alaska, with lemonade and Bakery Nouveau treats, available by donation to help 7-year-old cancer patient Sophia Thompson and her family. (More about their story here – including a link to donate if you can’t get to the stand before 2 pm.) And inside the market itself, long lines for River Farm Organic Produce – you can’t miss the yellow-topped tent:

As reported here on Friday, a family friend e-mailed to make sure everyone knew this Central Washington farming family had lost a home in the big Taylor Bridge Fire – but they made it to the market and, since the farm itself was spared, have lots of vegetables to sell. The market continues, as usual, till 2 pm.

  2. Yes, great to see so many stopping by. A quibble: would have been gracious if the anti-war crowd let them have the limelight for one Sunday.

  4. Thank you to Bakery Nouveau for their over-the-top donations and to the very generous community we live in! West Seattle is the best! Sophia and her family were overwhelmed by the amount of love and support that was received yesterday.
