This week was WILD at the market as we paired up with Bristol Bay Salmon Co. for a Pike's Place inspired fish throwing competition! Bristol Bay Salmon Co. sells wild caught salmon every week at the farmers market until owner Jarret Stevens goes away for the summer on a fishing expedition!
We kicked off after 12:30 and had a mass of people waiting to toss fish. People paired up with friends, family, and even strangers and wrapped themselves in disposable gloves and aprons before lining up across from each other at the center of the market.
We had an absolute awesome time pulling people out of the crowd to toss fish across the width of Normal Street! In our winners face off round we had a pair of young brothers against a young couple for a chance to win $25 of merchandise from Bristol Bay Salmon Co.

Join us next week for face painting at the Info Booth, followed by our monthly Visiting Chef Series on May 29!
