On Friday evenings through the summer and into early fall I can be found at the Phinney farmers market. This tight space packs in the vendors and crowds. Most come for dinner and stay for the music, ice cream, and to fill up on veg for the weekend.
The atmosphere at today’s opening day was electric. The market was chock a block. Wood fired pizza is the most popular choice with a line to match. There are tamales, sandwiches, and tandoori plates available as alternatives. Seattle Pops is a popular stop before loading into the car and heading home.
The vendors at this market are diverse. The space in the Phinney Center upper parking lot is limited. The organizers have done a nice job filling the area with producers who make and grow a range of products.
Tonight we tasted cordials from Finn River Cider. Bought cherries and realized we came too late for flats of berries from Hampton Farms. No bother – have rallied the clan to get to the Ballard market first thing on Sunday. Let the berry hunting begin!
