Phinney Farmer’s Market is from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Friday in the upper parking lot of the Phinney Neighborhood Association, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., with fresh veggies, fruit, meat, eggs, honey, flowers, bread, ice cream, and several places to get a nice dinner. It’s also a special day for the Zucchini 500 Races – decorate a zucchini, put some wheels on it and run it down the track, from 4-6 p.m. And it’s Free PNA T-Shirt Day – visit the market’s PNA booth to sign up for a PNA membership and get a free T-shirt (or a PNA hoodie for only $10). If you’re already a member, you can add a year to your membership and get that free shirt.
