madrona farmers market

Spring is finally here, and with that brings the arrival of fresh produce, meats and specialty foods at Seattle’s seasonal farmers markets, including Madrona’s, which is slated to begin Friday, May 16 and will take place every Friday afternoon through September 26.

Get your baskets ready to fill up with all the market has to offer – a small sampling of last year’s bounty included fresh meat and potatoes from Olsen Farms in the Colville area, juicy peaches from Martin Family Orchards in Cashmere, hazelnuts from Holmquist Hazelnut Orchards in Lynden, and fresh Washington salmon from Wilson Fish. Make a whole night of it by getting your grocery shopping done, watching a live cooking demonstration, and enjoying a meal prepared by market vendors (last year included Los Chilangos traditional Mexican food and their specialty Al Pastor). The market also encourages attendees to support the local, family-owned businesses in the surrounding neighborhoods of Madrona, Madison Valley, the Central Area and Capitol Hill.

The Madrona Farmers Market is open every Friday, May 16 through September 26 from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m., and takes place in the parking lot of the Madrona Grocery Outlet at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Way E & E Union St. For more information, visit their website, and the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance.
