THE WEATHER MAY BE COOLER -
BUT THE MARKET IS STILL
RED HOT!

 

Join us - Tuesday, July 22nd at the Renton Farmers Market.

Enjoy all of your favorite Summer fruits and vegetables this week!  Last week we saw the first melons of the season.  This week, we expect more melons, as well as corn, blueberries and so much more.  Cherries will be gone soon - if there are any left at the market tomorrow, stock up!

Due to popular demand, we will have a limited number of Kid's Passports available at the Kid's Patch  this week, and as always, there will be activities for the little ones during market hours.

The Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer all of your gardening and planting questions from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. is our "Taste of Renton" with this week's featured restaurant, Melrose Grill.  Live entertainment starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs to 6:30 p.m. with Eli Rosenblatt Trio, sponsored by the King County Library System. You can also visit the King County Library System in our Community Booth this week!
