Fresh Friday is on right now

By Michael Swan on June 18, 2010


Parkland's not typically one of the first "neighborhoods" that comes to mind when you hear the term "cutting edge." That said, you'll find a sustainable swap meet every Friday on Garfield Street. Titled "Fresh Fridays," from 3-6 p.m. every Friday, you may sell, buy, trade or barter fresh produce, plants and flowers on a small grassy spot with a picnic table in front of the gravel parking area on the south side of the street. Can you picture the spot? It's more toward the Pacific Lutheran University end of Garfield Street.

People are welcome to come and set up a spot. There isn't a fee – just folks sharing their bounties.
