FARMERS MARKETS IN SKAGIT COUNTY
Every summer weekend in Skagit County you can find a farmers market to visit near you. Many farmers markets begin in late spring and run through October. It's one of those fun events to explore with your kids because every weekend is different. Our family likes to find fun and fresh ingredients to try for summer dinners on Saturday nights.
Take the time to check out all of the farmers markets that Skagit County has to offer. They all have different farms from Skagit County and all over Washington state selling their fresh produce. There are also local artisans selling their products at the markets and many of the markets have activities for kids happening all day long.
The 2021 farmers market season in Skagit County will look different at each market. Please visit their websites to find out more details about how you can purchase locally grown food at each one safely.
Fast, easy access to local food!
Support local farmers, small businesses AND your community by customizing a basket of food that will be delivered to your home through Seasoned Harvest. It's like shopping at an online Farmers Market!
The owners of Seasoned Harvest, Serena & Christopher, grew up here on their family farm and love the Pacific Northwest. They also love delicious, quality food and want to share what they love with YOU!
They form close relationships with small community businesses and farms to bring organic food and local products directly to your door to help YOU save time & money! You can customize your own basket or subscribe to their Harvest Basket twice a month to save time shopping.
