May 15, 2013 St Anne School

A group of eager third graders from St. Anne School explored the Market today, experiencing some amazing sights, sounds, and tastes. One group made an early stop to talk with Shandra from Mount St. Helens Sculpture, and learned a little bit about the big eruption:

Later on they visited Beechers to watch the cheese-making. While they enjoyed some tasty samples, they learned that Beechers started in the Market in 2003:

Still looking for foods for their scavenger hunt, they stopped by Corner Produce, where they tried out a delicious Opal Apple, a new variety, grown in Yakima:

Time was winding down, but the group managed to squeeze in a trip to the Magic Shop in the Market, where owner Sheila amazed them with the classic cups and balls trick:
