Opening day for the Queen Anne Farmers Market is June 2nd

QAFM 2016It’s almost time! The Queen Anne Farmers Market returns for another great season in less than 2 weeks. Market season kicks off on Thursday, June 2nd and runs every Thursday, rain or shine, through October 13th.

This year’s QAFM poster marks the return of Joe Wirtheim. He’s the artist behind the 2014 and 2015 posters, so this year’s festive community gathering table image is a hat trick, and sure to be a hot item for collectors.

The poster will be available at the QAFM Info Tent and at Queen Anne Frame.

Here’s the scoop on the new poster per QAFM:

“2016’s poster focuses on our community gathering together at the table, sharing food and enjoying the market. Since QAFM is such a dynamic place to be every Thursday, Joe included our wonderful chickens to portray the fun that we have at market. We would love for you to “gather” with us this season at QAFM, and we are so thankful to Joe for again creating such a fabulous poster for us.”

We’re lucky to have such a fantastic local farmer’s market, so be sure to mark your calendars for opening day on June 2nd, here’s a photo from last year to tie you over until then:

QAFM seeks volunteers for market season

QAFM logoOur recent weather sure seems to scream “summer!” and it’s not that far away… at least for the Queen Anne Farmer’s Market. Market season kicks off on Thursday, June 2nd, and runs every Thursday until the end of the season in October.

As you may or may not know, the QAFM is volunteer-driven. That means that volunteers are critical to keeping our local market going strong throughout the season. That brings us to this week – QAFM is looking for volunteers to help out on market days, and if you’re interested in helping make the market run smoothly, plan on attending a QAFM Volunteer event this Wednesday.

Join QAFM Market Director Brittany Ryan at Bounty Kitchen (7 Boston St) on Wednesday, May 11th from 6pm-7pm to learn more about volunteer opportunities at the market. It’s a great way to get involved with one of Queen Anne’s most popular events, and all you need to do is RSVP via email.

There are several different volunteer opportunities, from setting up the market to staffing the Information Tent or Event Tent to breaking down the market tents at the end of the day. Get ready for market season, it’s less than a month away! Check out this photo from last year’s market to whet your appetite for fresh, local produce from QAFM!

Last Queen Anne Farmers Market of the season is today

QAFM 2015 PosterAll good things must come to an end… at least for the season in the case of the Queen Anne Farmers Market. The independent, non-profit market is a central feature of our Queen Anne summers, something we can all look forward to each week. But, today will be the last market until next year’s season, so plan on stocking up on the last of the fresh fruits and veggies, grab dinner from one of the food truck vendors, buy a QAFM t-shirt, and say farewell for the season.

The QAFM’s last hurrah of the season includes the usual vendors, plus if you have a pup, be sure to stop by The Seattle Barkery. They’re giving out free Peanut Butter & Banana Bone treats to 4-legged market visitors. Plus, Seattle Barkery has human treats too, so you won’t feel left out.

The Queen Anne Helpline coat drive will be at the market too, so bring along any gently-used or new coats for donation. The weather is slowly turning this year, and as it gets colder, the Queen Anne Helpline’s clothing bank can certainly use warm coats for its clients.

Make plans to stop by the Queen Anne Farmers Market today for one last market run until June!
