A Super Sunday With People, Pets and Performers at Everett Farmers Market

Market 3

Rainier cherries were making their 1st appearance of the year.

People watching was first rate, pets were popular and performers played live music to admiring crowds. Today we went back for another look at the Sunday Farmers Market on the Everett Waterfront. There was ample parking, fresh strawberries and rainier cherries were making their first appearance of the year and the crowds were a bit more manageable than opening day. This year the run of the Sunday market has expanded. Opening day was Mother’s Day, a bit earlier than in years past, with the season running all the way to October 18th. In less than two weeks the Friday Farmers Market is set to open at the Everett Mall with many of the same vendors you see on Sundays at the waterfront. Here are a few photos from today and we can personally attest that the Rainer cherries were fantastic. Click photo to enlarge.

  1. Love this Farmers Market Says:

    With such a great farmers market already in Everett, I struggle to understand why we need another such as the one we are supposed to be getting at the base of the new Pagoda Village, or Potala Place or whatever its name is now.

    If it were such a good idea, why did the last report say only two vendors have signed up? Wasn’t this claimed to be already 100% pre-leased? Again, concerning.

    So who are the two vendors (other than Potala itself)?

    The earlier article stated BB Ranch is one and the owner, William Von Schneidau, seems to be Bill of “Bill the Butcher.” Google search found some interesting articles that I seemed to recall

    Rachel Schreffler was mentioned as the only other Potala Farms vendor – I couldn’t find anything on her ChouxChoux bakery.

    Hopefully, for the developer, some of the “negotiations” will work out and he’ll get a full house. On top of the fact that he’ll be competing with our great market of 22 years, the other challenge may be opening up a “farmers market” in the fall. Time for pumpkins and squash but then much of the produce becomes less available until spring.
