Way to go U District Farmers Market!
The Huffington Post has included Seattle's oldest and largest "farmers-only" neighborhood market as one of the top ten farmers markets in the US.
According to "HuffPost Green," the University District FM, along with their celebrated cohorts are cited for their dedication to fresh produce, locavore ideologies and innovative settings."
Of course, all those superlatives apply, but we're also fans (obviously) of all our farmers market partners here in Puget Sound.
In case you're missing details - the Saturday market, located at the corner of University Way and NE 50th, in the heart of Seattle's University District is open year-round from 9 AM - 2 PM. On-street parking can be found, and the market provides tokens to shoppers for one free hour of parking in nearby pay lots.
Living nearby, our Saturday morning ritual includes walking over with shopping bags in tow. First stop - a calorie-busting round of buttery pastries, then down to the business of tasting, visiting and stocking up.
