Seattle Produce Stands To Check Out When You’re Tired Of QFC
Where to shop in the Seattle area for fresh fruit, vegetables, and more if you’re not feeling a trip to the supermarket.
We can all agree that big-name supermarkets have been a pretty stressful place to be during the last six months. And even though there are plenty of great restaurants selling groceries, pantry staples, and meal kits, a lot of those situations don’t take you very far if you’re planning to make something produce-heavy, like a garden salad, minestrone soup, or two whole gallons of green juice.
So, we thought you could use a list of farm stands across the entire Seattle area. These spots sell tons of fruit, vegetables, and more - we’ve noted which markets offer a little something extra, from local honey and homemade candy to more seasonal items like Christmas trees and pumpkins.
Produce, ice cream, bread, honey, eggs, coffee, dairy products. There’s also an espresso stand in the parking lot. Open 8am-8pm daily.
MacPherson's Fruit & Produce
Produce, spices, chips, snacks. It’s also our moral obligation to note that this fruit stand is across the street from La Tienda Mexicana El Oaxaque, where you can, and should, grab some delicious Mexican roasted corn. Open 6am-8pm daily.
