Get ready for the LFP Farmers Market opening on Sunday

Wednesday, May 9, 2018



Get ready and set to shop because the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market opens for the season this Sunday, May 13th – from 10 am to 3 pm - just in time to treat the moms in your life to some of those fabulous Mother’s Day flowers!

Not only will there be a wide assortment of spectacular bouquets, but of course the market will welcome back many of your longtime favorite vendors offering the best in fresh, organic, and locally grown / produced fruits, veggies, meat, cheese, eggs, fish, and much more!

All your favorite market products will be back, too, like pastas, bread, jams and sauces, candies, wine, hard cider, coffee, tea, and more. All that plus all the ready-to-eat treats you’ve come to adore at the market.

Speaking of ready-to-eat, the market will also be joined for opening day only, by guest vendors Daddy’s Donuts, bringing their renowned donut decadence just in time to treat mom. And for the kids (and the young at heart), the Heart of Dreams alpacas will be on-hand to bring a smile.

Like Third Place Commons, the community-supported nonprofit that presents the market, the LFP Farmers Market is committed to accessibility for one and all. So you know that SNAP, WIC, Senior Vouchers, and Market Bucks are always welcome! The market is also proud to participate in the Fresh Bucks matching program.

In addition, SNAP users take note. In 2018, there is no cap on the Fresh Bucks matching program! That means that you will get a dollar-for-dollar match on your SNAP benefits.

If you spend $10 in SNAP at the market, you’ll get $20 to shop with including $10 of Fresh Bucks for your produce purchases. Spend $20 in SNAP and get $40 total to spend. You can literally double your SNAP spending power at the market! So don’t miss this opportunity to make your benefits go twice as far.

And don’t forget that if you love the LFP Farmers Market and want to support it, Third Place Commons, or the Market Bucks food assistance program for neighbors struggling with food scarcity, now is the time to #GiveBIG!

When you GiveBIG before midnight on Wednesday, May 9th, you will help your market community and your Commons community to thrive. And you might even help the Commons win an extra $2500 donation. Or win something for yourself. Visit the Third Place Commons website for more information.

The LFP Farmers Market is presented by Third Place Commons, a community-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering real community in real space. The market will be open from 10 am to 3 pm every Sunday through October 21st and takes place in the parking lot of LFP Town Center adjacent to City Hall at the intersection of Bothell Way NE and Ballinger Way NE.
