It’s that farmers market time of year and here are our top choices around the state.

Washington has a wealth of farmers markets highlighting the best of each part of
the region. Here are a few favorites to check out (but you’ll probably want to seek out even more).
YAKIMA FARMERS MARKET
Located in downtown Yakima, this market runs every Sunday from Mother’s Day through October. Depending on the season, you can pick up squash blossoms, beans or fresh peppers, among other things.
While there are several markets in Spokane, this one has been voted the best by locals five years in a row. Pick up some locally made yogurt, honey or fresh butter lettuce, depending on the moment. Catch this market between May and October.
924 SOUTH PERRY STREET
THE OLYMPIA FARMERS MARKET
This market is among the rare ones open all year. You can wander in Thursday through Sunday (April through October), Saturday and Sunday (November through December), and Saturdays only (January through March). Pick up a pastry or something from one of the food vendors and shop for seafood and produce.
