Downtown Spokane Farmers’ Market Moving to New Location


View Larger Map

 

Due to construction on 2nd Ave. this summer the Downtown Spokane Farmers' Market will be moving a couple blocks to the south of its long time location in the parking lot of the Covenant Church. The site, just south of 1-90 freeway between Division and Brown on 5th Ave, will have the capacity for far more vendors than the old site. The market has arranged with the hospital to be at this location for two years, but after that they may need to move again due to the hospital's plans for the property.

You can follow the news at their facebook page here.

The Saturday Downtown Market will open 5/15/10 and the Wednesday Downtown Market will open 6/9/10.



Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at goody2230@gmail.com
