Cherry pick the best of Vashon Island’s charming honor-system farm stands (info at stov.us), including our favorites: Pacific Crest Farm (23720 Dockton Road SW; 206.463.9002) for luscious tomatoes, and a stand outside the Eagles Lodge (18134 Vashon Hwy. SW) run by an old salt in suspenders (think: Wilford Brimley) for fresh fish, such as king salmon, halibut and albacore.
There are 93 days between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox—that’s 93 official days of summer. But as experienced Seattleites, we know that number doesn’t translate to 93 days of sun (we’d be thrilled just to break last year’s record of 48 clear days in a row). That’s why our summer guide offers ways to make the most of every summer day—rain or shine.
