It’s hard to think of a more idyllic spot than the location for the Lake Stevens Farmers Market. The market will run through August at the same time each Wednesday, with a break for Aquafest.
Organizers expect the biggest season ever at the new North Cove Park.
The Mill Spur festival street hosts the majority of the vendors, with the Mill on Lake Stevens building’s garage doors rolled up on sunny days against a back drop of North Cove Park’s lake front, sandy beach and stage/pavilion area.
Coupled with the nostalgic small town vibe of the Jays Market/Main Street setting, the location is Norman Rockwell perfect.
And people love the new North Cove Park - they’re headed there in Robert Moses-style droves and passing generally straight-A reports on the City’s work in building up this great public resource.
Sarah Dylan Jensen, Market Manager says she has an “amazing mix of new and returning vendors ready to serve the community every week”.
She is also introducing a new program, Power of Produce (POP) Kids Club – more on that at the market’s site.
“Every season is bigger and better than the last!” said Jensen.
And it cannot be argued that the Lake Stevens Farmers Market organizers scored anything less than a success with their well-received 2022 season at the Mill Spur at North Cove Park.
That said, in J425’s opinion with regard to farmers markets, the best ability is availability, and the Lake Stevens Farmers Market seems to start a month late and end a month and a half early.
A quick look at the Washington Farmers’ index of farmers’ markets shows that statewide, markets are universally kept open until the end of September, at least. Locally, even later - the average season for farmers markets within 30 miles of Lake Stevens runs through mid-October.
In the meantime, here’s a listing of a full slate of regional farmers markets to keep you busy through the summer.
So let’s get the most out of that beautiful setting at North Cove Park: Extend the thing.
J425 is a regular attendee of the market and at last year’s finale it seemed like every other customer and vendor we spoke to was remarking on how odd it was to roll up the welcome rug in August.
