If you have ever walked down Broadway during a Seattle Sunday, you may have run into the plethora of fresh vegetables and tasty foods that comes weekly. The Capitol Hill Farmer’s Market features local goods straight from the heart of the Pacific Northwest.
The market features a full selection of local, in-season fruits and vegetables from Puget Sound and Eastern Washington, farmstead cheeses, fresh baked goods, organic and pasture-raised meats, seafood, honey, eggs, cut flowers, and spring plant starts. At the start of the season, look for early greens, baby turnips, tender asparagus, and tangy rhubarb. As summer heats up and ripens to fall, you’ll find all kinds of local berries, cherries, peaches, apricots, herbs, greens, summer and winter squashes, tomatoes, peppers, root vegetables, apples, pears, mushrooms, and more.
