It’s summertime, and what is more exciting than the prospect of fresh local produce provided by your nearby farmers market? This season, you can buy your produce and goods right here in Lynnwood at your local Farmers Market.

The Lynnwood Farmers Market will kick off its inaugural farmer’s market season with a community ceremony on Thursday, June 12, at 3:30pm at Wilcox Park.  Join the Mayor, councilmembers, Cedar Valley Elementary students, community supporters, and City of Lynnwood employees as we celebrate the opening of market season.

The Lynnwood Farmers Market will be a 16-week, seasonal market and community celebration held at one of Lynnwood’s most visible and popular parks, Wilcox Park located at 5215 196th St SW. The market will be open weekly on Thursday evenings from 3 – 7pm featuring approximately 30 vendors offering a variety of fresh, locally-grown produce, processed food products and hand-crafted items. The market is coordinated by the City of Lynnwood and will also feature free performances, food trucks, live music, and children’s activities. The Lynnwood Farmers Market is not only a great place to purchase local produce and goods, but it is a place to enjoy an evening with family and friends.

    Hi Reed,

    Thank you for contacting us about the Lynnwood Farmer’s Market. Unfortunately, the Lynnwood Farmers Market will not be reopening for the 2015 season due to an insufficient number of farmers.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,

    Christy

    Unfortunately, that post was from 2014 and the Lynnwood Farmer’s Market did not return for the 2015 season.

    Thank you,
