You only have two chances left to visit the Auburn Farmers Market! After having to cancel due to poor air quality last week, the market has announced that it will be adding a Market day to make up for the loss.
The market’s new final day of the season is Sunday, September 27th.
With approval from King County Public Health, the Auburn Farmers Market will feature farm fresh produce, fresh cut flowers, cheese, honey, coffee beans, wine, handmade masks, soap vendors, and prepared food to go.
Sundays through September 27 | 10 am – 3 pm
Les Gove Park | 1140 Auburn Way S
SNAP & EBT
We have a limit of $10 per customer per Market day. This means folks with EBT can still take out as much EBT as they want to spend, but we will only be able to match those dollars up to $10. The match is no longer unlimited.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we adjust to the new limit.
In response to COVID-19, Farmers Markets across the nation are making modifications to keep customers, vendors, staff, and volunteers safe.
Following is a list of some of the changes:
Self-Screening Health Checklist:
All staff, vendors and volunteers will be required to self-screen with a set list of health questions before they enter the Market.
Plan ahead for shopping
Customers are being encouraged to plan ahead and bring a shopping list for the Market.
Public Health is currently limiting the number of people inside of the market at a time. Because of this, customers may experience a bit of line to get in when they arrive at the Market. The waiting line outside the market will be clearly marked for physically distancing and clear signage will guide customers through both the waiting line and the Market.
Additionally, while we encourage customers to try to send just one member of a household, we understand that your household may need to shop together to pick up needed items. (And, customers will need to leave your dogs at home this year – unless they have a service animal).
Vendors and staff are required to wear masks. In accordance with King County Public Health guidelines, the Market is strongly urging customers to wear a mask as well.
