After 28 years of providing community members with local goods, the Woodinville Farmers Market is finally moving to its permanent location on Festival Street in the new Schoolhouse District development.
The market was previously located at DeYoung Park. However, the small space limited the number of vendors allowed at the market and caused other challenges, according to a news release from the Woodinville Farmers Market.
The release said the new site will be larger, easier to find, and more accessible. Eva Peterson, president of the market, said she hopes the new location will attract an increased number of visitors.
“We have some wonderful new vendors joining us for our new season. They, along with our regular vendors, will be selling a wide array of fresh, local foods each Saturday,” Peterson said.
The market season will run from May to September, the release said. Vendor applications, which opened Jan. 10, can be accessed at https://woodinvillefarmersmarket.com.
Peterson said the larger venue will allow the market to triple in size, making more room for vendors.
“We’re so grateful to the City of Woodinville for their generous grant supporting the expanded market,” she said. “With this grant we will be able to incorporate a regular kids program, expanded, regular entertainment and food trucks. There will definitely be something for everyone.”
As a nonprofit, the Woodinville Farmers Market invites community members to join them as volunteers for the upcoming season.
“I’m passionate about our farmers market and love being a part of the planning for this new season. The new board is working hard and needs more volunteers,” Woodinville resident Deb Poarch said.
