The Markets are Opening!
Nearby seasonal Wallingford Farmers Market opened recently on May 17th! And Phinney Farmers Market will be opening on June 2nd! Because of our unusually long rainy season this year in WA State (the longest on record in modern history), some of the farm vendors understandably had a delay with their crops. But our warm season is firmly underway now, as are abundant produce, herbs, and artisanal goods! Look at Wallingford’s chart to see what’s approximately available. (Keep in mind there might be a lag, due to previous rain).
Recently, Seattle was rated 4th in the nation for being the most fit city. One of the reasons cited for this improvement was the increase in the number of farmers markets in our area: a positive indication that unprocessed, natural food can make a difference in one’s health.
If you would like to visit other farmers markets in other neighborhoods as well, here is a complete list of places and hours from The Seattle Times. The Wallingford Farmers Market is on Wednesdays, from 3:30-7 pm through late September. And Phinney Farmers Market will take place on Fridays, from 3:30-7:30 pm through October 6thth. Bon appetit!
