What's Fresh at the Farmers Market

Posted August 29, 2013

Abundance on the Farm Tables 

Here’s what fresh at the Pike Place farmers market and at our three Express markets around Downtown: 

Xai Cha: If you didn't pick up a sweet, juicy Pineapple tomato last week you'll definitely want to grab one this week. Xai Cha has a table full of delicious tomatoes but this is one you don't want to miss. Also find green beans, peppers, eggplant, lemon cucumbers, basil, and onions.

Pao Xiong: All the cukes you could possibly need: choose from regular cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, and pickle cucumbers. They also have green beans, zucchini, carrots, basil, Swiss chard and beets.

Gaia Sheng: Tasty raspberries, jade beans, carrots, kale, beets and peas.

Magana: The only place you'll find fabulous sweet red and grapes! They also have fresh corn, apples, peaches, plums, pears, peppers, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, eggplant, and onions.

Bao Cha: Now offering sweet onions, kale, chard, zucchini, cucumbers, beets, green beans. (Do you speak Thai? Test out your skills on Thai Thao!)

Sua Yang: Bright green kohlrabi, carrots, basil and beets are on this farmtable.

Alvarez: Shop for farm grown peanuts before the next Mariners game! Alvarez also has a  huge selection of eggplant and potatoes, zucchini, squash blossoms, potatoes, tomatillos, cucumber, corn, cantaloupe, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, onions, and dry beans.

Martin Family Orchards: New peaches are coming in this week. Also check in for pears, and be on the lookout for their first apples of the season.

Tiny’s Organic: Dive into a Honey Fire nectarine for lunch on Tuesday. Golden Princess peaches, pluots and donut peaches will also be available.

Hayton Farms: We know you love them! Keep coming back for Chester blackberries, organic Blue Crop blueberries, and Autumn Bliss raspberries. Bring your half-flat box for $1 off your purchase.

Sidhu Farms: Choose from blueberries, raspberries, strawberries,  blackberries, berry jam and fresh rhubarb stalks.

Mt. Townsend Creamery: This week, try a Fromage Blanc. It's a tangy cheese used like ricotta for cooking. It goes great in omelets and is delicious spread on bagels.

Britt’s Pickles: It's the perfect week for some sauerkraut! Pick up Curry Kraut with cumin and turmeric, or try Regular Kraut with caraway. Either way you'll have a delicious addition for any sandwich, burger or hotdog.
