Beets Banners for Queen Anne Farmers Market

In a Little Dead End Part of the Street

The Queen Anne Farmer's Market is held from 3-7 PM on Thursdays from June through the first week of October. Wouldn't you know I was in the neighborhood Wednesday. Drat! I was by there last week sans camera, and I thought I would at least show you it's location. This farmers market is now a stand-alone enterprise, no longer affiliated with one of the two farmers market associations that have produced the other Seattle neighborhood locations. I just noticed that QAFM's new location on Crockett Street sports these spiffy banners with an Arts & Crafts era graphic appeal, and there are matching posters in neighborhood shop windows. They were designed by Elizabeth Mullaly. This market was held for the past two years a block or so away at a middle school site, no longer available due to construction. Because of location constraints, this is a smaller market like Wallingford's or the PNA's, and offers cooking demos with chefs, live music, and meet the author events, gourmet fresh street food vendors, farm fresh produce, cheese and other foods from local producers.
