Farmers Market season is back

Mercer Island Farmers Market will run every Sunday through September 29.

The Mercer Island Farmers Market has officially opened for its 2019 season. On June 2, Islanders gathered for the 11th year.

According to a release, the market board has been working with community partners to ensure the same quality and vitality Islanders have come to expect.

“We’re trying to keep it the way our community expects it,” market manager Jackie Clough said. “We’re keeping everything running smoothly, and we’re really excited that all the pieces came together to do this.”

For this season, Clough said Islanders can expect a good combination of returning favorite farmers, food trucks and specialty items. Throughout the season there will also be free live music, kids’ activities and produce tastings. The Children’s Table is also returning this season. Local preschool teacher Judy Witmer will once again organize a children’s table with hands-on activities to help educate children on subjects related to food and farming.

“I’m super excited to see the community,” Clough said. “We’re just encouraging people to look at the assortment. It’s nice to see our community out here.”

The 2019 market season will run on Sundays from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., June 2 to Sept. 29. The market is located at the intersection of Southeast 32nd Street and 77th Avenue Southeast (at the north end of Mercerdale Park).
