The first day of business at the Madrona Farmer’s Market is today (Friday) from 3-7 p.m.
As in previous years, vendors will pack the parking lot next to Grocery Outlet at MLK and Union. More details from market’s website:
Madrona Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of the Madrona Grocery Outlet at the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and E. Union Street. In 2013, it is open every Friday from 3-7 p.m., from May 17 to September 27.
Please be sure to support your generous market sponsors, Madrona Grocery Outlet, for graciously providing the space for your Madrona Farmers Market. Thank you very much, Steve & Deborah Mullen, for your continued support!
Community Groups & Non-Profits wishing to table at Madrona Farmers Market should check in with the Market Info Desk by 2:30 p.m., after which qualified groups will be assigned space based on availability on a first-come, first served basis. Please see “Non-Profits & Community Groups” for more details. Political campaigns and signature gatherers are kindly asked to remain outside the market boundaries.
You mean the Central Area Market that is in the Central District but named the Madrona Market because ( by the managers own admission several years ago) “no one would want to come if we named it the Central District Market”.
So we pretend that it is not the central district, gotcha!
This blows. We lost 14th & Union to Capitol Hill, no way do we lose MLK & Union to Madrona. What can be done?
Pray tell, when you “lost” it, exactly what were you ‘doing’ with it?
I really hope you’re just being silly.
Union and MLK is considered Madrona. Madrona is part of the Central District. Honestly, do people have nothing else to worry about?
I wouldn’t call making a post to a news site “worrying.” I was just making a comment. Take it easy!
This is close to my house and sounds great – but I wish it was open at a time that I could ever actually go to it.
I was just happy to have it back – I don’t care what the heck you call it. I don’t live in what’s considered “Madrona”, I live in the valley – and I was really upset thinking the market wouldn’t be back this year because I hadn’t seen any signs touting it’s return…I don’t give a rats behind what we call it, I just want it to be here every spring/summer/fall…bought my veggies and cheese and flowers and eggs today, and will be back every Friday!
