The Shoreline Farmers Market is opening its fourth season June 20th in a new and improved location. 

The market will be held at Aurora Square in the upper parking lot adjacent to Sears and Central Market. Thanks to the continued support from the city of Shoreline, local farmers and businesses, and an engaged community the market has grown to 40 vendors in 2015, up from 30 vendors in previous years.

Shoreline Mayor Shari Winstead champions the new location and says, “The market continues to be a wonderful addition to the City of Shoreline and demonstrates our commitment to support local agriculture, small business, and build community. The market’s new location is a big step towards revitalizing the heart of Shoreline and towards improving the quality of life in our city.”

Look for juicy berries and cherries, organic vegetables and fruits, sweet corn, pasture raised beef, poultry, pork, and eggs, raw cranberry juice, wonderful cheeses, and specialty items like 50 varieties of sweet, mild and hot peppers, raw honey, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and more.

Guests can treat themselves to local beer and wine tastings from Piccola Cellars, and Lantern Brewery, pour overs from One Cup Coffee, ice cream from Full Tilt, cupcakes and cookies from Delicately Sweet, and delicious food from Shoreline’s own Patty Pan Grill, Mikayo’s Japanese fare, and a rotating selection of food trucks: El Cabrito, Wicked Pies Pizza, Hot Revolution Donuts, Biscuit Box, Raney Bros.
