Interbay Farmers Market kicks off Thursday

The new Interbay Farmers Market opens today from 3 to 7 p.m. in the Whole Foods parking lot on 15th Ave West. This is the market that was at the Sculpture Park at Myrtle Edwards last summer.

Here is a little bit about the vendors you can expect:

Many New Farms & Artisans! Interbay Farmers Market, like all of our markets, features some great new farms to the Seattle farmers market scene. King County’s newest farm is One Leaf Farm in Carnation. Their spectacular produce includes pink beauty radishes, heirloom lettuces, perfect, tender collard greens and kale, and incredible salad mix. Lee’s Fresh Produce in Redmond grows beautiful Asian crops, including pea vines to die for, cilantro, baby bok choy, dill and more. Colinwood Farms from Port Townsend has had a toe in Seattle at Ballard for the last two years, but many still have yet to meet this urban wonder of a farm. Colinwood is located in the middle of Port Townsend, surrounded by the city, farming some of the richest, blackest earth anywhere. Their braising mix, greens and lettuces are unrivaled, and their significant greenhouse operations allow them to be the first to bring summer squash and tomatoes to market this season. Tefft Cellars is a top-notch winery from Outlook, in Eastern Washington. They offer a good selection of their wines, including a wine box that is perfect for summer parties. Deluxe Foods makes brilliant jams, jellies and fruit butters from the fruit of local farmers. Your toast will never be the same.

Many Favorites Return! Interbay Farmers Market also features many familiar vendors, from Skagit River Ranch with their world-class beef, pork, chicken, sausage, bacon, eggs and more. And they’ll be grilling their burgers onsite, too! Pasteria Lucchese produces the finest handmade, artisan pastas, sauces and desserts found in Seattle. Grateful Bread Bakery also returns with great artisan breads, bagels, pastries, cookies, muffins and more. Alvarez Organic Farms is back with organic asparagus, sugar snap peas, greens onions and garlic, lots of great dried beans, and soon, the largest selection of chili peppers in Washington! And Finnriver Farm & Cidery has their wonderful, bottle-fermented hard ciders and fruit cordials.

Along with traditional vendors selling fruits and vegetables, there will also be a cooking demonstration by chef Brandon Kirksey, Tavolata from 4 to 5 p.m. You can get all the latest news about what’s available at the Interbay Farmer’s Market here.
