King County Executive Dow Constantine rang a little bell just before 3 p.m. today, officially opening the Phinney Farmers Market for the season. “Where else do you get to visit with the person who grows your food?” he said.
Dozens of vendors are selling all kinds of produce, jams, meat, eggs, edible plant starts, flowers, soups, nuts, ice cream, pasta, pastries, bread, cider, wine, chocolates, salmon and honey.
Plus, you can eat a nice dinner right there at the market with food from Veraci Pizza, Pan Africa (chicken, lamb and vegetarian African dishes), and Patty Pan (grilled veggies, quesadillas, tamales).
See a full list of vendors and their products here. The Phinney Farmers Market is open from 3-7 p.m. every Friday through Oct. 1. Below, Constantine chats with Woodring Orchards proprietor Dale Nelson about his jams, juice and dressings.
