Local Farmers Markets Throughout Seattle

Seattle is a fresh fruit and veggie paradise with eight seasonal and four year-round weekly neighborhood farmers markets besides the giant daily one at Pike Place Market. Two organizations run the local markets. Seattle Markets sponsors the original year-round Fremont Market with farmers' produce, local foods, flea market, artisan and craft goods, and its spin off sister market in Ballard; and May through September markets in Queen Anne, Wallingford, and Madison-Madrona neighborhoods. Seattle's Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance sponsors year round produce and local foods only markets in the University District and West Seattle, and May through October markets in Columbia City, Broadway, Phinney, Lake City, and Magnolia neighborhoods. I'm regretfully saying goodbye to berry season (these were at the Wallingford Farmers Market a few weeks back) and welcoming the apples, pears, figs, and pumpkins of autumn.

Great to see so much fresh Berries (my favorite : blueberries :-) ).

Quite rare to see so much variety of Berries in my part of the country as we usually imported from USA or Aust. So price are quite expensive here for these berries.
