Welcome to the Market!
Join us each Tuesday - June-September
Note change in time for the last two markets:
September 20th and 27th - 2:00-6:00pm
This Week at the Market
Final Market Day of the regular season! Please note our time change to start and end one hour earlier. Stop by to say 'Thank you' and to support our hardworking vendors who brought you the freshest and best products for the past 17 weeks.
AND, mark your calendar as we are adding a Holiday Farmers Market to coincide with the downtown Renton Small Business Saturday celebrations, Saturday, November 26th from noon to 4 pm
This week, we welcome back our Market Day Sponsor Gate Gourmet - an airline company responsible for all that food and beverage production and delivery on your flights - meet with them at the Market and learn how you can join their team! We also welcome back naturalists with the Cedar River Salmon Journey to learn where you can see salmon and what we can do to help them.
We expect farmers to bring apples, beets, cabbage, carrots, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, green beans, greens, green onions, kale, lettuces, onions, okra, pears, peppers, potatoes, radishes, tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash, peaches, nectarines, plums, raspberries, blueberries, melons, honey, beautiful bouquets of flowers and Asian specialties such as opo, bitter melon, Chinese and Thai eggplant, kabocha and more! There is so much fresh produce still to enjoy this season - check out the National Center for Home Preservation and learn how to freeze, can or dry your harvest!
Live music from our good friend Biff Moss runs from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Find the WSU Master Gardeners over at Market West for gardening advice every week and check out our Kid's Patch while you are there.
And the fun doesn't end at 6 pm tomorrow as the Renton Night Market opens up inside the Pavilion Building and runs until 9:30 pm.
Survey Says! We value your feedback - if you have attended the Market this season, please take a moment to share your experience so we can make it better in 2023!

Free ten-hour parking will be available at the City Center Garage, 655 S 2nd St. - enter off South 2nd Street between Burnett and Logan, watch for signs. 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. Visit the Food Access page for more info
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.
