You'll find a variety of vendors displaying handmade gifts, plants, planters, etched granite pieces, a rich variety of jewelry styles, hand sewn items, cards, photography, woodcraft, bowls, some furniture, and much more.
While you're there take the kids on a railroad ride
Skykomish’s "Toot Sweet" railroad themed candy and gift shop is open weekends now, as well as the Skykomish Historical Museum, both in Maloney’s General Store.
And as last year there's the impressive Great Northern and Cascade miniature 7-1/2 gauge railroad that has over 2,000 feet of track and more to follow as volunteer labor permits.
The railroad is open each weekend now through the summer with free train rides for children and adults around the developing Skykomish Town Center highlighted by the restored old Skykomish Depot.
Visitors are invited to come and take in the charm of this historical railroad town, ride the train and shop the Open Air Markets.
