New farmers market coming to Interbay

A new, weekday farmers market is getting ready to open for the summer in the parking lot of Whole Foods (2001 15th Ave W).

The Seattle Farmers Market Association, which includes the popular Ballard Sunday Farmers Market, has teamed up with Whole Foods to make this happen. “SFMA believes that this type of business partnership will allow the farmers market to become more sustainable while providing a rich experience for the entire community,” according to the press release.

The hope is to start with 30 vendors and expand to 40 or more during peak harvest season. The market will run from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays starting June 9th, timed for commuters heading home from work.

“This new farmers market will provide the best of both worlds for convenient midweek shopping, fresh picked seasonal produce from local farms and food producers, and the in-depth selection of the Whole Foods Market experience,” the press release states.

Ooh, yay, midweek option for veggies! I’ve never been to that Whole Foods, though. Is it possible to exit to the west (and then north) of WF, in order to turn left at a light? I’ve seen too many people trying to turn left from the WF parking lot, and failing.

 Yes. You can go west around the back of the store which exits on to Armory way (I think) and use the light to turn North.

 Ooh, looking forward to it. Do we know who any of the vendors will be? (i.e. particularly the meat/fish/dairy folks?)

 I heard there is also one at the Swedish in Ballard on Tuesday, although vendors are limited.

Snoopy, I originally linked to the wrong site. The correct website is now linked. Kate

 Isn’t this the same time as the Queen Anne Farmers Market?  I didn’t see the QA one on that site.  Is Interbay replacing QA?

Just one vendor I think (Dog Mountain Farm).  They have a good veggie selection, and some jams/jellies/lots of eggs.  I think it’s from 11-2pm.
