Your Perfect Saturday in Kent, WA


I say it all the time, but truly, one of the best parts of running NW Healthy Mama, is sharing fun things to do and then hearing success stories from you guys! Our area is so full of healthy family fun and NOW is the time to get out and enjoy it! Grab your calendars, tag your friends and get ready for some awesome summer fun. Here is your perfect itinerary for a Saturday!

In today’s post, we’re heading just a few minutes south of Seattle to Kent, WA. Here’s what’s going on and what you can’t miss. The PNW has awoke for summer.  Everyone is coming out of their hibernation and we’re all ready to soak in every second of this wonderful season. Here are suggestions for you, your kids, your day out with friends or your next family day!   *Please note, it’s always a good idea to check with the venue for specific hours of operation.

  • Skip gym class and breathe in the morning air with a walk around the Kent Farmers Market. Kids of all ages will enjoy the opportunity to sample mouth-watering fruit, savory kettle corn and fresh-squeezed lemonade. (Open Saturdays 9 a.m.-2 p.m.through Sept. 23)
  • Ready for a lunch break? Enjoy locally sourced ingredients at family-friendly Airways Brewing Bistro. Offering an upscale take on pub food, adults can enjoy a craft beer and burger while the kiddos enjoy a mac and cheese or grilled cheese on brioche. (Open Saturdays, 11 a.m.- 9 p.m.)
  • Kid friendly takes on a new meaning at Whistling Train Farm. Buy the best in organic fruit and vegetables from 12-year-old Cosmo, a fourth-generation farmer who operates the family produce stand. (Open Saturdays, noon- 2 p.m.)
  • Don’t let all the fun fool you, education is on the itinerary with a tour at Mary Olson Farm. As a popular destination for field trips, this piece of living history features a restored barn and farmhouse, painting a picture of what life was like at an early 20th century farm. (Open Saturdays, noon- 5 p.m. through Aug. 17)
