Welcome to the Market!
Join us each Tuesday - June-September
Thank you to all who supported the Renton Farmers Market in 2021! While our market may be over for the season, we are busy planning to come back bigger and better than ever in 2022!
Healthy Kids Corner
'Grab N'Go' kid's activities are at the Market each week! Visit the Healthy Kids Corner at our Market exit, where our friends from the WSU Extension SNAP-Ed along with our beloved Piazza volunteers will be handing out homemade play-dough and fun kids activities to take home to your kids. If you aren't able to make it to the market, download activities to do at home!
The Renton Farmers Market runs every Tuesday, June through September, from 3 pm to 7 pm at So. 3rd and Logan Ave South - across the street from Piazza Renton in Downtown Renton. Free two-hour parking will be available at the City Center Garage, 655 S 2nd St. The Market is also adjacent to the Renton Transit Center for easy access from public transportation.
Food Access for all
The Market will also continue its successful SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Bucks program, and offer a dollar-for-dollar match with the newly named SNAP Market Match (formerly known as Fresh Bucks) Bucks, doubling the buying power for local, healthy foods that are accessible to everyone.

Buy One, Donate One
Did you know? Each week we collect donations for the local Renton Food Bank at our market. Most of the donations come from our generous farmers - now we are asking our shoppers if they would consider helping out, too. Buying an apple? Consider buying another apple and donating it to the Renton Food Bank. See our donation station at the Market Manager booth for more information.
Total health takes teamwork. Kaiser's coordinated care teams work with you - and each other - to help keep you healthy. And that's important - because something as simple as having doctors and specialists who talk to each other can speed up your care, improve your treatment, and let you focus on living your life. Staying healthy should be easy. With the right team, it is.
When our popular SNAP Market Match program ran out of funding, our teammates at Kaiser stepped up to fund the program for the remainder of the season. Thank you to our partners at Kaiser Permanente.

Recipe of the Week
Kale and White Bean Soup - September 28
1 cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
1 tbsp olive oil or butter
2 cups low-sodium broth (any type)
1 ½ cups cooked white beans or 1 can (15 oz)
1 ¾ cups diced fresh tomatoes or 1 can (14.5 oz)
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
3 cups chopped fresh kale (or frozen)
In a saucepan over medium heat, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil or butter until soft. Add broth, white beans and tomatoes; stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the kale and Italian seasoning. Simmer until kale has softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
Notes: This recipe is terrific now using fresh ingredients from your garden or farmers market, but also works great with canned and frozen ingredients! For more protein, add cooked and chopped Italian sausage. 1 bunch fresh kale = about 8 cups, chopped.
