What could be a fresher, healthier way to kick off summer than attending a local farmers market? A brand-new market in Interbay opens today, offering some exciting demonstrations and delicious food from new and existing farms.
Interbay Farmers Market will be located at Interbay Urban Center on 15th Avenue West, just north of the Magnolia Bridge, replacing the Olympic Sculpture Park Farmers Market on Thursdays. Interbay will open at 3 p.m. and will feature a cooking demonstration by Chef Brandon Kirksey of Tavolata.
Some of the new farms include One Leaf Farm in Carnation, Lee’s Fresh Produce in Redmond, and Colinwood Farms in Port Townsend. They offer a variety of produce, from pink beauty radishes to baby bok choy to summer squash. Also joining the bunch is Tefft Cellars, a top-notch winery from Outlook in Eastern Washington.
Returning veterans will include Skagit River Ranch, Pasteria Lucchese, Grateful Bread Bakery, and Finnriver Farm & Cidery, offering meet, pasta, bread, delicious fruit, more veggies, and some wonderful hard cider.
Here are some exciting events coming up for Interbay:
Chef Dan Osser, Interbay Whole Foods Market, will present a Cooking Demonstration on Thursday, June 16.
Chef Jason Stoneburner, Bastille, will present a Cooking Demonstration on Thursday, June 23.
The Seattle Farmers Market Association has strived over the past few years to create European-style farmers markets. The Seattle markets are designed to bring together the community into a family-oriented weekly gathering place, as well as being conveniently located to bus and bike commuters. If you decide to drive, please remember to turn left onto 15th Ave W when you leave, and always use the back exit of Interbay Urban Center, which accesses a traffic light. It’s much safer and easier!
