The first Renton Farmers Market of the season was today. Even though it was hot – almost 80 degrees – I went to sketch. I’d long admired these brightly painted carts made for the vendors to use. I resolved that today I would sketch them and I found a view that was almost in the shade.
The King County Library’s book mobile was also parked nearby.
I drew much more attention than I ever have! Staff from the Farmers Market came to talk to me. Then the volunteers started coming over. Meri took me over to meet several of them who had been involved in the painting of these carts many years ago. They are members of the Piazza Renton Volunteers I was told that Don Sorenson was the main volunteer behind the painting of the carts.
