Friends of Third Place Commons

As a safe, welcoming space open to everyone, Third Place Commons fosters real community in real space. The Commons hosts over 900 FREE community events each year and presents the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market. We nurture a vibrant, thriving community through arts programs like weekly music and dancing, monthly Art-Ins, and local school performances, civic programs like community fairs and public lectures, and social meet-ups like weekly play & learns, game nights, Mahjong Mondays, and more!

Third Place Commons is dedicated to providing accessible community space and creating opportunities for people of all ages, regardless of their backgrounds, income level, or physical abilities. With a moderate budget, small staff, and devoted volunteer base, we host over 900 free events every year, serve at least 1000 people who use the Commons daily, and another 7,000+ who shop at our weekly farmers market. Free weekly and monthly programs -- like live music (and dancing), Commons Art-Ins, toddler play & learn sessions, foreign language conversation groups, game nights, T'ai Chi classes, informational lectures, community fairs, and performances by local school groups, studios, and others -- create a hub of connection and serve as a source of strength for surrounding communities across the North King County/South Snohomish area. Thanks to the support of our donors and partners, all of our programs are free of charge, making them widely accessible to one and all.

Through our local Sunday farmers market, which runs from Mother's Day through mid-October, we support the good health of our surrounding communities and foster a thriving local, sustainable food movement. Through our own local donor-supported Market Bucks food assistance program for low-income individuals and families -- as well as our participation in SNAP, Fresh Bucks, WIC, and Senior Voucher programs -- we are proud to help provide access to healthy, nutritious produce, meats, and more to our neighbors in need.
