The Market’s Open!

The seasonal Madrona Farmers Market opened recently on May 19th! 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 this 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 Madrona Farmers Market is on Fridays, from 3-7 pm through the end of September. Bon appetit!
