4 Northeast Seattle Farmers Markets to Browse This Summer
Get in on some farm-fresh action fit for any local foodie! This summer, friends and family can enjoy any of these four fabulous weekly farmers market options throughout Northeast Seattle and beyond.
Lake City: The Lake City Farmers Market returns on Thursday, June 8, and will stick around every Thursday until October. Classic market staples and new favorites alike will offer everything from handmade tamales (El Chito) to hard cider (Greenwood Cider Company), Afghan street food (Afghan Delicious) and kale chips (Kale Love). Head to the intersection of NE 125th and 28th NE between 3 and 7 p.m. for a limited-time taste of summer.
University District: While the U District Farmers Market is a year-round event that takes place every Saturday, it really kicks into gear in the summer season. Pick up fresh produce or meat products from local farms, artisanal goods from locally made cheese to fresh bread from Sea Wolf Bakery or handmade popsicles from Seattle Pops, or the region’s best craft beer, cider, wine, and more. You can also grab a bite to eat at a variety of favorite food trucks and stalls. On May 20, come for the first day of the annual U District Street Fair and stay for more market goodness, which will continue according to its usual weekend schedule. See you on the Ave!
And for those of you farther Northeast…
Bothell: Every summer Friday beginning on June 2, vendors fill the Country Village parking lot for Bothell’s very own farmers market. Local farms will sling produce and other fresh goods; artisans sell jewelry, clothing, decor, and so much more; and food stands serve up baked goods, hot dogs, and icy treats. Come enjoy a late morning or early afternoon stocking up on necessities while the whole family enjoys live music and fun activities.
Lake Forest Park: Get your market fix just north of Lake Washington at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market, hosted by Third Place Commons. Opening day is Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 14), and the market is in full force every Sunday morning and afternoon until mid-October. Bring home some fresh flowers, fill up on produce for a family meal, or snack on tasty vendor treats cooked up right before your eyes.
