This Week - September 29th
Closing Day - last day of the market!
What an amazing season! Thank you to all of our shoppers for continuing to support local farmers for the last 14 seasons in downtown Renton. Please be sure to say "Thank you" to our farmers for all of the hard work they continue to put in each and every day of every year so that we are able to enjoy their harvest.
Our TASTE of Renton demonstration runs from 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and features the Renton High School Culinary Club, and our live entertainment with Biff and Darrell runs from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Every week we have Master Gardeners on hand to answer your plant questions from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and our Kid's Patch with activities for kids during market hours. Also at the market this week, Food Too Good To Waste will help you shop, prep and store smart to help prevent food waste, and Food $ense will have nutrition info and recipe ideas. South County Cats rescue will be in our Community Booth.
Apples, pears, pumpkins and other winter squash varieties will be in abundance at the market. With the warm September weather, we can still expect to see tomatoes, summer squash varieties, cucumbers, peppers, onions and potatoes. And don't forget - the holidays are coming! Shop early with our craft and wine vendors for great gift ideas!
Visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation and learn how to freeze, can, dry, and pickle all the fresh, in-season market produce to enjoy all winter long.
