The 15th season of Carnation Farmers Market will kick off at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1 with the ringing of the opening bell. With an ever-growing list of new and returning vendors, the market’s selection includes all the best fresh vegetables, wood-fired breads, scrumptious pastries, ethically raised meats, fruits and berries, farm fresh eggs, beer, wine, ready to eat foods, and ice cream.

At the opening day celebration, enjoy the music of Poindexter’s band as happy children and Maypole fairies participate in the maypole dance at 4:30 p.m. Bring the kids early and meet Lori from flower charmers for free flower crowns before the festivities begin. Starting at 5 p.m., enjoy the reopening ceremony for Fred Hockert park right across Stossel Avenue, which will end with a special musical performance. Join in the celebration as you enjoy the vast variety of products from the farm and food vendors.

Carnation Farmers Market has something for everyone!. Their Music on the Grass summer concert series will feature the local talent you know and love in addition to special featured performances monthly from June to September. For the kids, PoP Club returns with children’s activities and special cooking demonstrations available from June through August. A complete schedule of music and events can be found on the Carnation Farmers Market website at www.carnationfarmersmarket.org or on Facebook and Twitter.

The market is dedicated to making their venue accessible to everyone. This market accepts credit/debit, cash, WIC and Senior FMNP checks, SNAP/EBT and CFM Market Bucks. Through partnership with Tolt River Family Medicine, the market is able to fill your Veggie Rx prescriptions at the market free of charge. CFM also offers Fresh Bucks, a dollar matching program that doubles purchasing power for SNAP beneficiaries – this year, the match is unlimited.

As a program of SnoValley Tilth (SVT), Carnation Farmers Market is dedicated to bringing together farmers and the community to build a thriving local food system. The farmers market is one of many ways SVT promotes sustainable, organic farming in the Snoqualmie and Snohomish Valleys.

The Carnation Farmers Market is open Tuesdays from 3-7 p.m. starting May 1 until Octo.16, with an additional Thanksgiving Harvest Market on Tuesday, Nov. 20. CFM is located in the heart of downtown Carnation on the corner of Bird Street and Stossel Avenue in The Tolt Commons Community Shelter, just one block east of Highway 203/Tolt Avenue.
