Port Susan Farmers Market
The Port Susan Farmers Market is on the move! To better serve customers and vendors the Market is moving one block north into the parking lot behind the police station (8727 271st NW, Stanwood, WA 98292) at the corner of 88th St. NW and Florence Ave. The new, larger location will allow for growth, better access and additional parking. Also new will be two programs; Sprouting Healthy Kids a food discovery area featuring fun, interactive activities for children based on food and nutrition education and Chef at the Market, a cooking demonstration booth where shoppers will enjoy fresh-cooked samples and recipes using in-season ingredients available from our vendors.
Our stall spaces are devoted to Washington State farmers and small food businesses. Farmers, fishers, ranchers, foragers, food processors and prepared food vendors comprise a minimum of seventy percent of market space and sell directly to the public what they grow or produce: fruits, vegetables, nuts, meats, poultry, eggs, seafood, dairy, honey, nursery stock, cut flowers and processed farm products such as jams, preserves, ciders, sausages, fresh breads, baked goods, confections and other specialty foods, with an emphasis, where possible, on foods made with local farm ingredients.
The remaining thirty percent includes non-profit organizations and vendors of hand-crafted arts, crafts, bath and body products, fiber arts, and books from local authors. No space is given to wholesalers, nor to vendors imported or second-hand items. The primary purpose of our markets is to enable local farmers and food processors to sell directly to the public what they produce on their own farms.The Port Susan Farmers Market is located in Stanwood, a charming small-town with friendly people, unique shops and homey restaurants, situated on one of Washington’s most treasured natural resources, Port Susan Bay. Conveniently located 5 miles west of I-5 exit 212 at the corner of 88th St NW and 271st St NW, the market features vendors selling local farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, poultry, eggs, honey, baked goods and specialty foods such as hand-crafted BBQ sauces, spice rubs, gourmet pasta and homemade jams. The Market also hosts local artisans and offers educational programming with family-friendly activities that focus on food culture and nutrition. Stop by each Friday for the best farm fresh products and enjoy live music and concession-style food.
