You don't have to wait for the fair. The Fisher Scones wagon is set to return to Olympia


Thurston County must love scones.

Turnout was so high last month when the Fisher Scones wagon visited downtown Olympia, that organizers have decided to make a return trip to the city.

The wagon carrying the coveted scones served annually at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup as well as the Thurston County Fair in Lacey will be back in Olympia on Saturday, this time at Ralph's Thriftway.

The wagon will be at the 1908 Fourth Ave. E. location in Olympia from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

According to the grocery store's Facebook page, shoppers can earn a voucher for a free scone buy purchasing two boxes of Fisher Scones mix at Ralph's.

But fair warning: The lines at the wagon when it was at Bayview Thriftway May 25 (which was a Friday) were dozens of people long for most of the day and moved slowly since many people were ordering in bulk. The lines -- and the scones -- were a taste of the fair.
