This season, the market starts June 3 and will be open every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Oct. 7.
The market started in 1994, and it's grown from a few vendors to more than 75 and moved to a prime position on the waterfront, off West Marine View Drive. The Huttons had bought the market in 2002, leased the land from the Port of Everett and charged vendors a flat fee to sell their wares.
Last year, I talked with the Huttons about the potential challenge of a competing indoor, year-round farmers market on Grand Avenue, to be run by a nonprofit group of area farmers. At the time, they told me it could be mutually beneficial, with customers patronizing both locations. Inger Hutton also said there are a growing number of markets competing for a limited number of farmers.
The indoor farmers market was originally slated to be open as early as this spring. But construction hasn’t started.
