Shoreline Farmers Market Saturdays

Farmers markets at their core are a chance to connect growers directly to consumers. Produce bought at Farmers Markets are nearly always fresher and last longer than store bought produce. Many of the growers (but not all) are pesticide free and many picked their produce in the morning before coming to the market.

Flower growers don't have to have a brick and mortar store. They pick their blooms and bring them to market.

Food producers don't have to deal with a middle man. This is particularly important for products like honey, which are only available certain times of the year.

Organizations can get out and talk to people directly. Conversations can be held and all questions answered in a way far more direct than email or messaging.

The markets have all added ready to eat food as a service to their shoppers - and to help keep them there longer! Shoreline had Seoul Bowl, hot dogs, coffee, pastries, gyros, ice pops and more!

If you missed Saturday's market, there will be another one next Saturday, 10am to 3pm, Shoreline Place, N 155th and Westminster Way, upper level by Central Market.

Lake Forest Park's market is Sunday, 10am to 3pm, Town Center, intersection Ballinger and Bothell Way.
