Columbia City Farmers Market

This Wednesday, October 19th is the last market of the season.

Thanks for another fantastic farmers market season Columbia City! Despite another tumultuous spring, record low temps, and a few rogue solicitors, we came out on top of things. This neighborhood really supports its farmers — even when it's cold and rainy, somehow farmers still do alright.

  • Special Guests: Cascade Harvest Coalition
  • Chef Demo 4-5pm
  • New Farmer: Bloom Creek Cranberries!
  • Kids Tent: Rainier Valley Historical Society

Plus a final appearance from St. Jude Tuna

Raise a pint and discover how you can save energy and energy dollars with a low cost energy efficiency assessment and improvements.
