Take a mid-week break at the Sedro-Woolley Farmers Market. The pint-sized market is ideal for mid-week stocking-up on local ingredients and for an hour or two of relaxing. Their goal to revitalize the community by offering customers locally produced food and artisan products is being realized with an array of products offered by local vendors.
The music. Every week features a new artist who keeps the atmosphere festive and prompts visitors to break out into spontaneous dancing.
This market takes hospitality to the next level. They regularly host customer appreciation initiatives in the form of giveaways, contests, and potluck dinners—just another way of welcoming customers with open arms.
Who to See
Check out the cool concrete planters from cc Juls. The hand poured vessels are great for growing succulents or as sturdy candle holders.
Visit the Baldham Farm stand to ask about their heritage pigs, Dexter cattle, and Barred Rock chickens. Then bring some of their pork, beef, and fresh eggs home. (baldhamfarm.com)
Those with a green thumb need to stop by Shady Pond Tree Farm. Owner Greg Smith brings lush landscape plants to the market. Beautify your garden with one of their Japanese maples or ornamental plants.
Grab a carton of sun-kissed organic berries from Hayton Farms. The fifth-generation farm on Fir Island began in 1876 by Thomas and Sarah Hayton, who sold grain. Today it’s run by Angelica and Robert Hayton and sells berries exclusively. (haytonfarmsberries.com)
Munch on a bag of fresh kettle popcorn from Ma & Pa Kettle Corn. The family-owned and operated business travels around Western Washington so you might catch them at other events.
Bring home a box of fruit from Martin Family Orchards. The eastern Washington farm grows the juiciest peaches, nectarines, and apples. A bowl full of their Bing or Rainier cherries is perfect on a lazy afternoon, too. (martinfamilyorchard.com)
