Market FlowersSpring sprung early this year, and our farmers have been busy!   We always celebrate opening day with gorgeous bouquets of flowers for Mothers Day, and an abundance of asparagus. This year, we can promise a bounty of both, as well as fresh greens and other vegetables that have gotten a great start in this weather.

 

We are thrilled to welcome back many of our veteran vendors who have been with us from our first opening day eleven years ago.  From farms as far east as Wapato and Sunnyside, south toPuyallup, and north to Arlington and Mount Vernon, our farmers are ready to bring the bounty of Washington to us.
