The Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is a seasonal weekly marketplace featuring around two dozen regional and neighborhood vendors. Their products include organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables, breads and pastries (including gluten-free), farm-fresh eggs, artisan soaps, raw and flavored honey, flowers and plant starts, crafts, pickles and preserves, pasture-raised meats, plus lots more.
The aim of the market is to bring fresh, affordable goods that are locally grown or produced to the residents of Emerson-Garfield as well as all those who pass through our up-and-coming neighborhood.
The market now takes place every Friday from 3 to 7pm in the parking lot of the Institute for Extended Learning’s Adult Education Center (2310 N Monroe) in the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood. This highly visible location along a major retail corridor offers ample parking, connection with public transportation (the #24 bus line) and close proximity to other North Monroe retailers.
In 2016, the market will run from June 10 until September 30. Each week the market provides entertainment in the form of local musical talent.
The market also accepts EBT/SNAP/Quest as payment and participating in Fresh Bucks. With Fresh Bucks, for every $5 in market tokens you charge to your EBT card, you receive an additional $2 in tokens. In other words, for every $5 you actually get $7 to spend at the market.
This market is an ongoing partnership between Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council and Project Hope Spokane. This—combined with support from organizations like the Community Colleges of Spokane and Catholic Charities—makes the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market truly a collaborative, community venture.
