WLM resident photographer David Welton is out and about every weekend shooting the cultural life of Whidbey Island.

Here are the spoils from his jaunt through the Clinton Thursday Market, which happens from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Thursdays through Aug. 29. The open-air market is just up the hill from the Clinton Ferry Dock at 6315 Storkson Drive at Clinton Square and features local artists, craftspeople, local services, food, music and fun. A free bus to the market is available from the ferry dock.

Take a look at what some of the vendors have to offer!
