Madrona’s farmers market opens today at 3pm, and in just six days we’ll see the seasonal debut of the Queen Anne Farmers Market—the one to which local foodies gather like moths to the proverbial flame.
The QAFM opening celebration begins at 2:30pm on Thursday, May 20 at West Crockett Street and Queen Anne Avenue North. Try to arrive by 4pm, so as to to see Jason Franey of Canlis give a demonstration. There is also a kid’s cooking class at 5pm.
I was excited to see that Maximus/Minimus (the vegan bbq sandwiches are a health food, right? ), Veraci Pizza, and Parfait ice cream will be selling their stuff at the QAFM this year, and that Loki Fish is joining the Queen Anne vendor crew. That crew already includes such stalwarts as Foraged and Found Edibles, Tiny’s Organic, and Full Circle Farms.
Here’s the schedule for all the neighborhood farmers markets. Happy shopping.
