Saturdays come alive in May with the smell of freshly brewed coffee, the sight of bright green plant starts and the smell of locally made food. The Orcas Island Farmers' Market is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday from the first weekend in May to the first weekend in October on the Village Green in the heart of Eastsound. This weekend, May 7, marks the launch of the 2016 season. Vendors this year include crafters of all sorts, food vendors and, of course, farmers. Sunday is Mother's Day and the market is a great place to shop for gifts. Mixed in with all these wares will be educational booths, workshops and demonstrations throughout the season.

Marilyn Anderson, 89, died peacefully at her Eastsound home on April 22, basking in the kind words and gestures from people she loved (oh how she enjoyed the music, laughter, chocolate, and chardonnay!). Abiding by her favorite motto – "Prior planning precludes poor performance" – Marilyn left a legacy of outstanding accomplishments.
