The Phinney Farmers Market opens in the upper parking lot of the Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., on Friday, June 3. Hours have shifted 30 minutes later, from 3:30-7:30 p.m. This will allow more time for people to leave work and get to the market for ready-made dinners and to pick up their groceries for the weekend.
The Phinney Farmers Market will happen every Friday through Sept. 30.

- Burton Hill Farm (raw goat milk dairy on Vashon Island), selling raw goat milk, farmstead cheese, goat milk soap, lavender calendula salve, and rose lotion.
