Madrona Farmers Market opens for the season Friday

The Madrona Farmers Market season kicks off tomorrow at 3pm on the corner of MLK and Union with an expanded lineup of vendors for the 2010 season.

The market, held in the Grocery Outlet parking lot, will be open every Friday from 3-7pm through September 24.

We talked with Zachary Lyons, the communications director for the Seattle Farmers Market Association, about what to expect at the market this year – even more local products, and a few new stands that will satisfy those with a sweet tooth.

Lyons said reorganizing the setup of stands in the parking lot has allowed for more room for new vendors. Additionally, almost all prepared food sold will be made predominantly with local ingredients.

“That’s a big shift and something we’re very excited about,” he said.

In addition to the old standbys, here are some of the new items and vendors:

As is now traditional, Chef Michael King of St. Clouds will be hosting a cooking demonstration from 4-5pm.

The Madrona Farmers Market blog has regular updates on what’s at the market on a weekly basis. They’re also on Facebook and Twitter this year, so you can follow updates about what’s fresh there as well.
