Top Banana to stay open year-round

For the first time in 17 years, Top Banana (6501 15th Ave NW) will be open during the fall and winter.

“It’s been a tough year,” owner Jimmy Wild tells us, “I’m not closing for the season due to economic problems.” Along with a tough economy, he says it costs a lot of money to close up shop each year and another 15 to 20 thousand dollars to reopen in the spring. His plan is to continue with the produce year-round and bring in the Christmas trees during the holidays, just like he does every year. The fall and winter hours at Top Banana are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. everyday. (Thanks Antoniorbrown for the tip via Twitter.)

  1. The owner also said that if things didn’t improve, he would have to close.

    Come on folks!! Let’s buy our produce from Top Banana!!

  2. I like ’em both. And I’ve always thought it was cool that both 65th & 15th NW and 65th & 15th NE had a produce stand. Fruit symmetry!
