  • Not as busy when we all went today. Found easy parking up close. Not a lot of vendors but plenty to choose produce from. Tai, Philippine, and American food vendors.
  • The fruit stands are a bit pricey. But the fruit tastes good. $8.00 for 3 tomatos is high.
  • I expected the Yakima Farmer's Market to be larger. It covers perhaps 2 blocks, both sides of the street. Lots of local produce, a few crafts, community groups and only a couple of food vendors on the day we went. The biggest scores for me were the Asian organic vegetable stand - where I found the best Japanese cucumbers I've seen in ages. Also - different varieties of bok choy, lovely purslane and radishes. My absolute favourite was the mushroom stand. Gorgeous oyster mushrooms in a wide variety of species, shiitakes and portabellos. I bought gorgeous pink Brazilian oyster mushrooms and made a vegetarian version of Coquilles St. Jacques...AMAZING! Everything was $12/pound. I lament the mushroom man lives nowhere near me! Worth a stop if you're strolling downtown on a Sunday.
  • When you go to the farmers market in Yakima, it really is traveling to the epicenter of the farm portion of farm-to-table. While it's not a giant market, it encompasses about two city blocks and has Thirty or so vendors. The majority of the vendors are from farms either in Yakima or some of the neighboring communities. When we first attended a few weeks ago, there was an incredible amount of produce available. It ranges from veggies, to berries, to just about any type of fruit you could imagine. The best part however was the fact that there's really not a lot of price difference between here and the stores around. And most farmers markets that we have frequented, there's a significant markup - fortunately that really was not the case here. Aside from the produce, there were a good number of ancillary booths including those specializing in wood carving, a couple cheese makers (YES!), a sausage booth, a few jewelry spots and a number of local organizations advertising to the community- we talked with the master gardeners and they're a fun bunch! The food available here was pretty legit too. A Filipino booth boasts some incredible pork and beef skewers, there's tons of good Mexican food options and a number of other booths rotate through. We're excited to keep seeing what rotates through. In addition to this being a great market, there is incredible potential given the surrounding area. I wouldn't surprise me to see the number of food trucks continue to increase and the non-produce options continue to expand. A+!
  • always a great farmers market filled with local produce direct from the farmer.
