Although some farmers markets won’t open until later in the spring or summer, others are open for business, including the Everett Sunday Farmers Market on W Marine View Drive.

Along with a variety of produce from regional farms, you’ll find baked goods and prepared food, arts and craft items, and cut flowers and arrangements. Everett’s market accepts EBT cards and WIC and senior vouchers.

Master gardeners with the WSU Extension Office will also be on hand to answer questions on plants and pests.

And don’t forget your own bags.
