A new mural for a new market

I made my way down to the 6th Avenue Farmers Market this evening. I’m sure all you folks-about-town have already been there, buying cheese from Estrella Family Creamery and sausages from Cheryl the Pig Lady.

Though today was only the second week of the market’s existence, a sure sign of its future (besides the crowds that were buying out entire stands of berries) was an artist painting a mural on the side of a building.

Jennevieve Schlemmer, a mosiac artist, was working on a scene showing a delivery truck towing a trailer full of fruits and vegetables. The mural is sponsored by the market and the 6th Avenue Merchants Association.

Schlemmer, of Tacoma, said she’d be painting the mural over the next few weeks.

The next time you’re stocking up on blueberries check out Schlemmer’s live art show.
