Patricia Lovejoy, of Garden Treasures, nurses the baby plants in the greenhouses at her farm in the Stillaguamish River valley. Patricia’s husband, Mark Lovejoy, coordinates the Arlington Farmers Market that opens Saturday, June 20, in the city parking lot next to Legion Park in downtown Arlington by Sarah Arney
ARLINGTON — Patricia and Mark Lovejoy are launching their third year as coordinators of the Arlington Farmers Market, offering fresh organic produce grown in the Stillaguamish Valley, and other items.
“One of the main missions of Garden Treasures is to promote and revitalize the agricultural businesses here in the Stillaguamish River Valley,” said Mark Lovejoy.
The Lovejoys got a bit of a bonus this year when they were approved by the state of Washington to accept WIC and senior farmers market coupons. WIC is a federal grant program for which Congress authorizes a specific amount of funds each year to help provide nutritious foods to women, infants and children. click here to read more
