Conde Nast Traveler rounded up the Top Farmers Markets in the U.S. and Seattle's beloved U-District market just made the list at Number Nine! Aside from calling out our amazing fruit-growing climate, they also mention Foraged & Found Edibles, Loki Fish Co. and tandoori food stall Tandoozy. Not surprisingly, four of the chosen markets are in California, with the Santa Monica market taking #1.
As if it isn't already hard enough to find parking over there...The U-District market is year round on Saturdays from 9-2. What's in season now? Among other things: Gala and Honeycrisp apples, plus new varieties like Pink Pearl and Frostbite; Bartlett, Purple Goddess and Asian varietal pears, and wild mushrooms including Lobsters and Chanterelles.
