One Last Farmers Market Before Christmas Dinner

West Seattle vendors bundle up to bring you fresh, local grub for the holiday table.

Winter is here and many of Seattle’s farmers markets have shut down for the season — most of them, anyway.  This week, the resilient vendors of the West Seattle Farmers Market will brave the cold to bring you fresh, flavorful fare one last time before the holidays get into full swing.

For years, West Seattleites have enjoyed a year-round luxury: Sunday morning strolls through Junction Plaza Park to browse the wide array of locally sourced goods. Since 1999, the West Seattle Farmers Market has featured more than 35 Washington State vendors of seasonal produce, fresh baked goods, local seafood, grass-fed beef, homemade preserves, fresh cut flowers and much more.

Though they will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day (which both fall on Sundays this year), the West Seattle’s Farmers Market wants to celebrate the season of giving with a special evening market for Seattleites to gather ripe, farm-fresh edibles for their holiday spread. In addition to the many vendors, the evening will also include live music, children’s activities, sweet treats, warm drinks and chestnuts actually roasting on an open fire.

This special holiday event will be held at Junction Plaza Park (located at the intersection of 42nd Ave. S.W. and S.W. Alaska St.), from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22. If you attend, be sure to stock up — the vendors will not return until Sunday, Jan. 8.
