This Saturday is Opening Day! We will be in our full spread along NE Hancock Street between 44th & 45th Avenues. Come ready to fill up that market basket.
8am - 1pm!
Now that we are a year-round market, Opening Day seems to mean something a little different. It's now when we look forward to tasting the first produce of the season and expanding to include even more of the great local foods we love. We were so happy to keep you connected with many of your favorite farmers and local food producers this winter and now you can revisit the ones you missed the most.
During our April markets, we were able to offer a variety of local foods, including meats, cheeses, seafood, winter produce, pastries (some gluten free!), eggs, mushrooms and more!
Plus over 50 varieties of garden starts and nursery plants. You can expect all that and much more this Saturday with over 50 vendors joining us for
Many of your favorite market vendors are returning for the 2012 season. Most will be where you remember them, but you can stop by the Info Booth to take a look at the most recent market map to find out where your favorite farmer is set up. And while you're there, check out our new Hollywood Farmers Market t-shirts!
New vendors this season include 2 Fruits, serving fresh juice and smoothies, N&N Amaro Produce and Scoop, handmade ice cream using local ingredients. We are also happy to welcome back Nature's Wild Harvest, Camas Country Mills and Sage & Sea, all who came to HFM late last season.
We also have a number of on-call vendors that we're pretty excited about this season. You won't see all of these vendors at the market each week, but we fit them in when we can. Please be sure to give a big welcome and your support to these folks who make the extra effort to be at the market on short notice: The Better Bean Company, Abby's Table, Inspired Salts, Fatdog Mustard, Pacific Northwest Kale Chips, Hammer & Tuffy's Granola, Wild Wines, Hello! Salsa, Masala Pop & Pieku.
Lastly, we want to tell you about a Wine Tasting at Grocery Outlet this Saturday. They have some amazing deals and a great selection of wines from the Pacific Northwest and across the globe. Their tasting will be from 2-4pm this Saturday, please consider stopping by!
See you at the market!
