Sunday Farmers Market coming to Snohomish
SNOHOMISH - A second farmers market is coming to Snohomish this summer.
The Sunday Farmers Market will be open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays beginning June 2 through Sept. 29.
The market will focus on locally grown food with space for about 25 vendor booths. There won’t be as many craft booths. The Sunday market will be located at Third and Lincoln Avenue at the old Hal Moe Pool site next to the Centennial Trail, Snohomish Boys & Girls Club and skate park.
The Sunday market will be managed by local longtime farmer Neil Landaas of Flying Tomato Farm. His farm produces tomatoes, cucumbers and eggs in the Three Lakes area.
Landaas ran the original Snohomish Farmers Market from 2000 to 2007 and the Edmonds Farmers Market from 2000 to 2012. The original Snohomish market is open Thursdays from 3 p.m. to dusk May 9 through October 3 on Cedar Avenue downtown.
Landaas, who lives in Snohomish, said he’s heard from a number of people in town who can’t make the Thursday market because of work.
“They want to buy local, but their work schedule doesn’t allow them to attend,” the Thursday market, he said.
Landaas says there’s room for two farmers markets in Snohomish.
So far, he’s secured Flying Tomato, Gypsy Rows Truck Farm, Caruso Farm and Bee Haven. The market’s focus is on Snohomish County farms.
Washington farmers and food producers who want information on participating at the Sunday Farmers Market in Snohomish, contact Neil Landaas at 206-412-4630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
