Farmers Markets Open Now and Opening Soon

Tuesday, June 16, 2020 1:00 PM by Matt Wakefield

Farmers markets have always been a seasonal mainstay in Pierce County, but right now, as much as any time in recent memory, it's a breath of fresh air to get outside in a safe environment, focus on community-grown food and locally made products, pick up some flowers to decorate the home you've been spending an absurd amount of time in.

Below is a list of farmers markets that are operating now, or will be operating soon around Pierce County. Expect some changes from the usual (see the links below; many are one-way paths, have limited occupancy, don't allow on-site consumption of food, or require that you bring your own mask), but also expect to enjoy yourself and take something home that adds beauty or healthy sustenance to your home.
