This Saturday, June 13, marks the end of another festive Edmonds Museum Garden Market season. With strawberries, Rainier cherries and even some apricots arriving, it feels like summer already. There are even some rumors that we may see some golden raspberries, but they will go fast.

As we welcome another beautiful sunny day, you will find many old friends returning, like Bill’s Fruits, Youngquist Berries and Hayton Berries. Also returning this week, after missing the last two, will be ACMA Orchards, with some certified organic Montmorency (pie) cherries, bings, and more. Their Montmorency cherries are some of the best around, perfect for making a pie, or even some jam.

Frog Song Farm will of course be there with some mushrooms, salad greens, radishesand more. And Flying Tomato farm may even have some delicious tomatoes to take home and enjoy!

This weekend also bring more sunshine and warmth, so don’t forget to visit Sky Valley Farm or Martiny Livestock for some chops or sausages for the barbecue. Top them with a product from one of our new vendors, Bear’s Breath, a delicious spicy ketchup perfect to accent your meal.

Finally, join us on June 20 as we open the BIG Summer Market one week earlier this year. It looks like a great summer with some new farmers, like Bright Ides Farm, and some more returning favorites, such as Gypsy Rows or Caruso Farm. So many surprises ahead as we celebrate the harvest every Saturday at Bell and 5th Avenue, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the summer!

Start writing up your list now, and don’t forget to enjoy a sweet treat or tasty meal while you shop. See you at the market, open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.!
