ARLINGTON — While the Arlington Street Fair might have brought some extra attention to the weekly Arlington Farmers' Market July 12, organizers pointed out that the selection of farmers' market vendors at the street fair is significantly less than they can expect to see most other Saturdays.

"You'll see a lot more produce when we return to the city parking lot," said Samantha Schuller, who handles communications and media for the market. "People who came by during the street fair asked if we have peaches and carrots in addition to berries, and the answer is yes. From farmers to artisans, we've grown a lot in the last four years."

Schuller also encouraged those interested in the market to check out the Red Rooster Route, which kicks off July 19-20 — the same days as Biringer Farms' Raspberry Fest at 21412 59th Ave. NE in Arlington — and continues through July.

"There are maps that show the locations of all the Arlington farms along the route, and if you can get each one stamped, you can turn in your card for giveaways and prizes," Schuller said, as she referred people to www.redroosterroute.com for more information.

The market continues through Sept. 27, and offers different activities each weekend, from music for youth to yoga in Legion Park, which are listed at www.facebook.com/pages/Arlington-Farmers-Market/148219895193047.

"We try to offer special activities to draw people out each Saturday," Schuller said.
