This Friday, May 15th, the Madrona Farmers Market kicks off the season, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the corner of MLK and E Union Street (Madrona Grocery Outlet). With more favorites returning like Olsen Farms (provider of fine locally raised meats & sausages), Kirsop Farms (read: FRESH Produce! Their produce is harvested within 24 hours of the market shopping hours), and newcomers, like Sweet Caroline’s, (offering gourmet jams and shrubs), this season’s market will have your needs covered.

This year’s farmers market will have over 30 vendors offering a mix of seasonal produce, flowers, sustainably caught fish, prepared foods, artisanal sips and savories, sweet treats and locally produced crafts.

Friday is set to be (mostly) sunny with a high of 68 degrees and with the excitement of opening day in the air, there is no excuse for your absence at this seasonal neighborhood event. So, round up the kids, pack your reusable bags, and meet your fellow neighbors while stocking up on prime local produce and products. Remember, our farmer’s rely on the support of their community to continue providing the amazing things they do, make sure they know how appreciative we are to have a Farmers Market in our neighborhood!

Madrona Farmers Market

Fridays, May 15th, 2015 – Sept. 25th, 2015

3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Madrona Plaza Available for Purchase

Madrona PlazaOver the last several years, real estate has changed drastically in Madrona’s commercial core. The two blocks on 34th Avenue between Spring and Pike streets have seen at least four new buildings go up, including the Pike Station, Madrona Refuge, and the two currently under construction. The Amara building will soon be developed. Real estate investors have seen tremendous potential in Madrona, and now instead of constructing a new building, there is an opportunity to invest in an existing property in the middle of all the action. Located in the heart of the Madrona business district, the Madrona Plaza building offers executive office space perfect for an owner-user or an investor (Click previous link for more building details).

The Madrona Plaza quietly hit the market a couple weeks ago. Built in 2000, the office building with retail on the ground floor is equipped with state-of-the-art office and communication services, elevator service, and secured parking. Peacefully situated next to Red Cow, across from the Hi-Spot, surrounded by the other Madrona shops, restaurants and parks, the Madrona Plaza offers a variety of activities to enjoy during the day or after work. The building’s tenants are made up of an executive suite model, two larger office space tenants, and long-term telecommunication leases for cell towers on the roof.
