Celebrate National Farmers Market Week – August 7-13

August 4th, 2011

On July 20, 2011, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack proclaimed August 7th to the 13th, 2011 as National Farmers Market Week.  This marks the twelfth year that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has proclaimed a National Farmers Market Week.
Farmers markets are a critical piece of any local food system.  They provide important market opportunities for farmers to sell their agricultural products, helping to sustain the livelihoods of family farms and rural communities.  They also provide consumers with the opportunity to purchase some of the freshest, healthiest and highest quality fruits, vegetables, and value-added products like freshly baked breads, fruit preserves, cheeses, milk and other dairy products.  Yes, we’re getting hungry, too!

What's Fresh this week? A bounty of great produce, flowers, cheeses, eggs, baked goods and so much more!   Check the Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance website any time:
This organization supports seven neighborhood markets including Lake City, Colombia City, and U-District, Phinney, West Seattle, Magnolia and Broadway.  And there are of course many more in Seattle and the area. The closest to Shoreline are: Lake Forest Park (Sundays), Lake City (Thursdays) and Edmonds (Saturdays).

Shop Fresh!! Support local agriculture and enjoy the fun and great taste!
