Could we please end the farce of calling this market the Mad/Mad Farmers Market! It is in the Central Area and should be called the Central Area Farmers Market. When questioned the organizers say they do not want to call it that because they think people would not come??!!?? This is racist! Boycott? If this sterotyping is allowed to continue why bother doing anything.
It frustrates me too, eyes, though I hadn’t heard that reasoning for their name. This year, all the signs in the neighborhood say “Madrona Farmer’s Market.” It appears they’re letting go of Madison claim? Either way, I’m an advocate for “Central District Farmer’s Market.”
and i think it’s called madison/madrona because in the past it was the Madison Farmer’s Market.
Let’s hope they keep the music indoors. There was a similar event a couple weekends ago and the ourdoor music was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation in our house 6 blocks away.
True. But then it was called the Mad/Cap market, and it was on 21st (?) off Madison, in what I still would have called the central district.
madrona mayfair…sat morning…parade and fun at the madrona play field.
10am? not sure..
cheers and enjoy the sun.
