Get ready for fresh produce, flowers, artisan goods and gifts, live music, and your favorite food trucks. Farmers Market season on Mercer Island is just around the corner.

The Mercer Island Farmers Market (MIFM) will open for the 2019 season on Sunday, June 2nd. The season will run on Sundays, June 2nd through September 29th, from 10 am to 3 pm, at the intersection of SE 32nd St and 77th Ave SE, just north of Mercerdale Park.

This year, there have been some challenges facing the Market related to Prop 1 and the Farmers’ Insurance building. They have hired a new market manager, Jackie Clough – a seasoned community organizer, professional project manager, and Mercer Island resident – who has been working diligently with community partners to ensure the same high-quality market full of your favorite farmers, food trucks, and specialty items.

The MIFM team is asking the community to continue to supporting the market by shopping frequently; encouraging friends and neighbors to join you; volunteering occasionally or regularly – sign up here; and staying informed – follow the Market on Facebook and Instagram and join the email list!

Regular events and programming include vendor tastings, a Children’s Activity Table, a Master Gardeners’ Table, and informational tables by sponsors, community groups, and non-profit organizations. MIFM also has the following special events planned:
