Welcome to the Market!
Join us each Tuesday - June-September
This Week at the Market
We hope everyone has a great 4th of July holiday! Our farmers are hard at work in the fields as always, picking fresh produce to have for you at the Market.
This week our farmers will bring eggs, asparagus (in July!), beets, bok choy, cabbage, carrots, chives, greens, green onions, onions, spring garlic, garlic scapes, hothouse tomatoes, kale, lettuces, peas, potatoes, radishes, rhubarb, apples, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, honey and beautiful bouquets of flowers.
Looking for gardening advice? Find the WSU Master Gardeners over at Market West for all the answers! Also find our Kid's Patch and Kid's Passport activities there. Also, live music by Henry LaVallee from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, brought to us by the Renton Municipal Arts Commission.
We wanted to share a resource - a FREE cookbook full of great veggie-forward recipes that all cost around $4 - who isn't looking to save a few bucks these days? Download the Good and Cheap cookbook today!

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 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.
