The Anacortes Farmers Market is held every Saturday from  9am-2pm, May -October & Wednesdays, 4pm-7pm, late June – August.

The Farmers Market is one of the most popular  events during the summer with both residents of Anacortes and visitors alike. You will find Fresh produce, Yummy baked goods (love those "pinkie" pastries at Jalillah’s Cookies booth), honey, bread, crafts, fresh flowers, plants and much more. Enjoy the atmosphere, have a cup of coffee and other goodies at the food court and definitely make time to attend one of the workshops (see list and dates below).

Take a look at my short video on the Farmers Market and some of the vendors one rainy day in May. The crowds were still there and I was lucky to capture a singing group on video. ENJOY!

 

 

Some of the vendors on the video are:

Bellingham Pasta Company was started in 2008 by Katie Hinton and Anna Rankin as a small wholesale business and quickly turned into a full time operation, providing fresh pasta to area grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, delis and of course our Farmers Markets. Stop in and choose from a wide variety of flavors and shapes including raviolis and sauces. You Can’t Beat Fresh Pasta!

Crunchy Mamas all-natural granola is hand-made by Marcia Schneider in Anacortes, Washington. Crunchy Mama uses the finest ingredients and its hallmarks are an abundance of hand-cut nuts, omega-3 rich seeds, thick-cut rolled oats. It is finely sweetened with coconut, raisins, and maple syrup.

Mother Flight Farm is a small organic farm located on Fir Island, just South West of Mount Vernon WA

The Anacortes Farmers Market sounds like it would entice many, and those baked goods look yummy.

That entire concept looks great!  I wish our Farmers' Markets would embrace those ideas.
