Welcome to the Market!
Join us each Tuesday - June-September
This Week at the Market
Looking for something fun to do with the kids? Bring them to the Market! On this day we launch our popular Kid's Passport Program, an 8-week journey through the Market helping them learn how to eat healthy and have fun with our friends at WSU SNAP Ed/Food $ense. And as always, we have our Kid's Patch with play dough for the younger kids (and those young at heart!).
This week our farmers will bring eggs, asparagus, beets, bok choy, 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.
Adding to the festivities will be Cuban dance music from SuperSones from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, brought to us by the King County Library System who will also be on hand with info on your local library programs.
Looking for gardening advice? Find the WSU Master Gardeners over at Market West for all the answers! And learn about safe disposal (and get a free bag) of fats, oils and grease in your home - visit the Renton Wastewater representative in our Market Info booth.

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.
