Many of us associate the summer months with visits to a local farmers market.

It’s a great way to meet and support local farmers and stock up on fresh, locally grown produce as well as many other items. It can also be a fun, community event for the whole family to enjoy.

We don't have a farmers market in Mill Creek, but here are ten local markets you might want to visit in the coming months.

Money really does grow on trees! People wandering through the south end of Mill Creek Town Center can now see tags attached to trees featuring dollar signs. The tags are part of an educational effort undertaken by the City of Mill Creek to help the community understand the value that trees and landscaping add to the city.

A gas line in Mill Creek was inadvertently punctured by a Snohomish County PUD contractor during underground utility construction work on Tuesday, May 16th.

There was no danger to residents. However, Village Green Drive was closed in both directions at the corner of 155th Street SE by Heron Park while the gas line was being repaired.
