Phinney’s Farmers Market opens the season next Friday, May 28, with dozens of vendors of fresh produce, cheese, bread, honey, cider, flowers and more, plus several ready-to-eat dinner options. The market is open from 3-7 p.m. every Friday through Oct. 1, in the lower parking lot of the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.
You’ll want to be here when the opening bell rings at 3 pm to scope out the early season offerings. Lots of our favorite farmers and producers will be back and the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance has lined up some new and exciting vendors. Let’s show “our” market businesses plenty of love to get the season off to a strong start. As always, there will be weekly entertainment, plenty of ready-to-eat options, and friends and neighbors in abundance. To see what will be “ripe and ready” this week, check out http://www.seattlefarmersmarkets.org/ripe-n-ready/ripe-n-ready. It will get your taste buds going!
Phinney Ambassadors will again be staffing our booth under the blue canopy in the center aisle. Ambassadors have info about upcoming PNA events, hand out market “passports” that kids can get stamped each week (this year you can even leave it at the market if that’s more convenient), and sell merchandise. We’ll have 3 great designs of sturdy canvas shopping bags, PNA logo caps, and an assortment of farmers market t-shirts from previous years. For 2010 we are also featuring Phinney Ridge *star* hats and tees sized for men, women and kids. The PNA booth will be staffed from 2:30-5:30 each week. We are still looking for volunteers!
