With the change of season comes a change in produce, and now is an excellent opportunity to gather with your local community and support Washington farmers.
Here’s the latest on Seattle Farmer’s Markets
The Lake City Farmers Market season has been extended through 10/10; the market will close at 7pm. Last day festivities include:

The Columbia City Farmers Market will be open for 2 more weeks, through October 16th.
The U-District Farmers Market has moved to its new home on University Way (The Ave) between NE 50th Street and NE 52nd Street.
The U-District Farmers Market has been located on the south playfield of University Heights Center since 1993. Recent plans for a new city park at the site have made it necessary for the Farmers Market to re-locate so it could continue to support the over 100 small farms and artisan food businesses who sell on a weekly basis and to grow so that new farms and farmers can count on this excellent urban market for their future success.
Their move to the street coincides with our annual celebration of all things apple… APPLELOOZA! Their annual apple tasting and vote for your favorite event will feature over 40 varieties of Washington State apples. There will also be apple recipes, and free apple cider for shoppers! Lively shoppin’ and strollin’ music will be provided by Tinker’s Dram.
