Starting the 10th week of the COVID-19 outbreak in King County, here’s our Saturday night roundup:

FARMERS’ MARKET REOPENS TOMORROW: The hours are the same (10 am-2 pm) but otherwise, lots of changes. The entrance will be at California/Alaska, and you’ll move north from there.

NEIGHBOR DAY, PANDEMIC EDITION: Today was Neighbor Day! Since events are still not allowed, that meant neighbors doing acts of kindness for others. Example: Tamsen Spengler of the West Seattle Timebank reports, “West Seattle Timebank member Alice made 9 face masks for member Rachel’s family. Happy Neighbor Day exchange!” Tamsen also sent this photo of two of the recipients wearing the new masks:
SPEAKING OF MASKS … they were the hot topic in our weekly update on local grocery shopping.
