Happening nearby: Lynnwood Farmers Market features fresh fruit and vegetables


Lynnwood Farmers MarketAs many of you might have noticed, summer has arrived, with plenty of sunshine and warm days to ripen locally grown fruits and vegetables.

We are thrilled to have such a great selection of fruits and vegetables to share with you.

Arriving this week, you will find fresh peaches and apricots from Bill’s Fruits, Martin Family Orchards and Collins Family Orchards. These are the first peaches of the season, full of summer flavor, perfect for snacking while you shop or later. Pondering cherries, the season of Bings and Rainiers are coming to an end, so pick some up while you still can. Collins Family Orchards will also have a limited selection of Apriums, Nectarcots, Nectarines, and more.

From Gypsy Rows Farm, located in Silvana, we will have picked fresh Thursday morning lettuce heads, rainbow chard, radishes and more. The selection, prices, and freshness is unmatched. From Cha’s New Life Farm, located in Fall City, you will find additional lettuces and even some herbs, cucumbers and tomatoes.

Alvarez Organics will bring a wide array of squashes, along with their signature peanuts, cucumbers and more. They may even have some of the first corn of the season, but we won’t know until they arrive.

From our berry vendors, you will find raspberries (both golden and red), blueberries, blackberries and even some Loganberries, Boysenberries and Marionberries. Quantities will be limited, so come early for the best selection.

Returning this week after a week off, Pasteria Lucchese brings a great array of pasta, ravioli and some amazing desserts. Also returning this week, you can find Colonial Honey, with their local, raw honey. Meet the beekeeper and find out more about our local bees and the benefits of enjoying locally harvested honey.

While you shop, pick up a hot dog or polish sausage from Bruce of Dog Day Afternoon, or some Kettle Corn from Rene at Classic Kettle Corn. Thirsty, check out the selection of Italian Soda’s available, or fresh hot or iced coffee from Café Ladro.

Finally, as you prepare to pack up your goodies from our market, stop by one of flower vendors and pick up a freshly arranged bouquet. Whether you have one made for you, or pick up one that they have made earlier that day, you are guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face.

See you at the market, Wilcox Park, every Thursday through September, 3-7 p.m.
