Does your fowl have pluck?
The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market invites customers to bring chickens clad in their best party attire to the market this weekend for the Poultry Pageant. That’s dresses, not dressing; the fun will include rounds of Fowl Bingo and lots of educational tidbits about our fine feathered farm friends.
The market runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Town Square by City Hall; bring in your bird by 11 a.m.
Seales to tickle the Sunday ivories
