This weekend if you’re looking for that fruit you have been waiting for all season, it might be best to take a look at your local farmer’s market before making the trip to your neighborhood grocery store.
Raspberries, apriums (a mix of apricots and plums), and apricots are just some of the fruits that can be found at the various markets around the city. Apriums however, are only available at the University District Farmers Market, West Seattle Farmers Market, Broadway Farmers Market, and Columbia City Farmers Market. A variety of Williamette, Black Cap raspberries are also available only at the University District Farmers Market.
