Farmers Markets are a great way for local farmers to get into our communities, meeting their patrons face-to-face. Farmers Markets are also a great way for everyone to get involved in the community and help their communities grow and flourish in a sustainable and healthy manner.
Why choose farmers markets? Farmers Markets are great for our local communities, including job creation, local economy stimulation, increased nutrition awareness and access to fresh ingredients and supporting healthy families on both sides of the table. Want to know more?

The last market on our list for Eastside Farmers Markets is the Redmond Farmers Market, which is held near the Redmond Town Center, making parking a breeze! Open May through October from 9am to 3pm, their Saturday market welcomes their 43rd season this year with a special event – the Redmond High School Pep Band will kick off the season with a “rousing performance!”
Sometimes Seattle markets are harder to get to and offer little in terms of parking opportunities and while they’re just as thrilling, sometimes we don’t want the small hassle. These Eastside markets are great opportunities for the same amazing and local quality, but without the hustle and bustle of the city.
