Farmers Markets

Recommended Posts

Here's a new farmers market in the Puget Sound area, or at least a spinoff -- the Tacoma Farmers Market will add a new site this spring, near Freighthouse Square and the transit / Link Light Rail terminus on the south side of downtown. This is in addition to the popular Broadway farmers market on the north end of downtown.

News Tribune columnist Dan Voelpel writes, "The new market will operate Tuesdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and limit its offerings to farm-fresh produce, nursery stock and processed foods from farms, such as canned jam, said market manager Melisa Evangelos."

Looks like the Broadway market -- which operates Thursday mornings and afternoons -- will remain the focus for prepared foods, which in the past have included barbecue sandwiches, wok-fried dishes, Polish, Caribbean, Mexican and other specialties (my wife and I operate a Thai food booth there). But, for many commuters wanting fresh produce, you can't beat the convenience of the new location.
