Shoreline Farmers' Market approved for opening on June 16 at City Hall

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

The Shoreline Farmers Market has a home for the inaugural 2012 season. 

The City of Shoreline has approved the location at City Hall on the upper level of the two-story parking garage. Located at 17500 Midvale Avenue N, just one block east of Aurora, right on the Interurban Trail, Shoreline’s new LEED Gold City Hall presented a balance of criteria necessary for the Shoreline Farmers Market Association to host a successful, vibrant and sustainable farmers market.

This central civic landmark is highly accessible, has ample parking on the lower level for customers and vendors, is safe and aesthetically pleasing, has good visibility, and will have restroom access at City Hall.

Locating a farmers market at a civic center has proven to be beneficial to communities by increasing their civic pride, sense of place, and encouraging more involvement with the city and surrounding communities.

The Shoreline Farmers Market Association is busy planning for the opening on June 16th. They are procuring a diverse mix of vendors, volunteers, community partners, musicians, artists, chef demonstrations, and sponsors.  The Market will take place every Saturday morning during the summer.

If you are interested or know of anyone who might be in any of these aspects of involvement email the SFMA.

The SFMA is on Facebook.
