Friday Afternoon Club: Pops, Pups and Produce

Highlighted events for this weekend include the annual Father’s Day Salmon Bake in Manchester, a pet adoption event sponsored by the Kitsap County Association of REALTORS and the Kitsap Humane Society in Silverdale and the seasonal opening of Port Orchard Produce farm stand (aka POPS) near Farmer George Meats in South Kitsap.

First things first.

Friday & Saturday
Port Orchard Produce
Port Orchard Produce opened today (Friday) for its fourth season selling Washington-grown fruits and vegetables. Fresh this week: Chelan cherries, beets, snap peas, snow peas, English peas, asparagus, and more.
Owner Gary Leckie drives to farms regionally and in Eastern Washington to hand-select his wares. Last year Leckie donated more than 2,000 pounds of produce to South Kitsap Helpline.
The stand is open Fridays and Saturdays through October next to Farmer George Meats, 3870 Bethel Road in South Kitsap (not to be confused with another, recently opened produce stand farther down Bethel past the Fred Meyer shopping center).
