Everett farmers Market opens Sunday

EVERETT — The Everett Farmers Market opens for its first day of the season Sunday on the waterfront.

It will be open every Sunday, rain or shine, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Oct. 7 at Marina Village off West Marine View Drive.

The market offers a mix of vendors.

Shoppers can expect to find seasonal produce and plants from 20 farmers, such as asparagus, greens and cut flowers; a variety of items such as meats, fresh fish, jams, and coffee from processors; and jewelry and wood crafts from artisans.

Wine, beer and cider tastings are planned throughout the summer.

Vendors also will be selling pizza, shaved ice, tacos and pulled-pork sandwiches.

The market is under new ownership this season.

Karen Erickson and Gary Purves have taken over from longtime owners Inger and Tone Hutton.

The new owners plan to continue accepting food stamps and credit cards at the market.

This year, the new market managers will not be operating a second location on Broadway, Purves said.

However, a second location may happen in the future, he said.

“There’s still a fair amount of interest,” he said.
