The evolving story of Safeway started in 1915, in a small Idaho town – to over 2,200 stores today in 33 states and the District of Columbia, and employing approximately 265,000 people after a merger with Albertsons. Always an industry leader, in the 1930s Safeway introduced produce pricing by the pound, adding “sell by” dates on perishables to assure freshness, nutritional labeling, even some of the first parking lots!
All of their stores were founded around the philosophy of offering customers the products they wanted to buy at a fair price, with lots of tender, loving care. They still open our doors every day today with that in mind, and because of it, they run really great stores. Learn more about Safeway, and find a location near you by visiting the Safeway website.
The Renton Farmers Market is proud to have Safeway as a sponsor, and to introduce a great program available at any Safeway store in Washington!

Qualstar has been a Friend of the Renton Farmers Market for the past six seasons. They are conveniently located just across the street from us, and have an ATM, too!
We recognize the realities of life and money, and appreciate what it means to work and save to give your family the kind of life you'd like them to have. We relate to our members not simply in terms of what they need, but in recognition of who they are - honest and hard-working.
At the heart of Qualstar is nothing less than being true to the ideas of what a credit union should be about - finding ways to improve members' lives. Whether it's simply knowing our members' names when they walk through our doors, showing them how they can save money on their loan payments, or helping them rebuild their credit - they should always know that their best interest is our best interest.
Simply put...we're not here to make money, but to help our members make better use of theirs. We work hard to live up to that every day.
Our name may be new to some in Washington, but you might recognize our faces, healing hands, and caring hearts. That's because doctors, nurses, and other providers who are now part of Kaiser Permanente have been serving local neighborhoods for years. We're glad to be here, and proud to provide the coordinated, connected care that helps our members and our communities thrive.
Why choose Kaiser Permanente?
Because health isn't an industry. It's a cause.
Kaiser Permanente was founded on the radically simple idea that everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy life. That's why you can find high-quality care and coverage in one place. As a member, you're at the center of everything we do - from pioneering new ways to treat cancer to building useful tools that make it easier to stay on top of your health.
We're all in this together. And together, we thrive.

Huge thanks to our Green Day Sponsor:
Fifty amazing years and counting
The year was 1962-the World's Fair was in Seattle, but across town in White Center, Frank Tonkin Sr. opened something equally (okay, almost) as impressive-his first Taco Time restaurant. Fifty years later, the same family and the same passion for fresh, delicious Mexican food still guides us. We're proud to be a Northwest institution (and Renton community members!), and we look forward to the next 50 years and beyond.
Meet the locals
We've been sourcing local since long before it was the popular thing to do. In fact, many of our ingredients come from Washington State. Our beef, pinto beans, and Mexi-Fries™, all local. Our Cheddar cheese even comes from a little Washington town called Sunnyside (seriously-we couldn't make this stuff up).
Clean, green, delicious
As a local, Northwest company, (and concerned inhabitants of this lovely planet we all live on) we think reducing our footprint is pretty darn important. That's why we've made a healthy investment in compostable packaging-we even challenged our suppliers to see what new ideas we can develop to help keep those landfills, well...unfull. It's also why we source many of our ingredients from Washington state, supporting local merchants and making sure our food doesn't travel much farther than you do. So please enjoy. Compost and recycle. Thanks.
Are you from around here?
If you are, you know what it's like to be a proud Northwest native. (If you're not, welcome! You'll be one of us in no time.) As a local, family-owned and operated company, we make it a priority to give back to the Northwest communities where our guests and employees live and work. Through our fundraising efforts, we're honored to have donated nearly $2 million to over 600 different charities in Western Washington over the past decade. And that's just a start. Thanks to our loyal guests for being part of it all.

King Conservation District - September 20th
The King Conservation District (King CD) is a natural resources assistance agency authorized by Washington State and guided by the Washington State Conservation Commission. Our mission is to promote the sustainable use of natural resources through responsible stewardship. A five-member Board of Supervisors is responsible for all District programs and activities.
Since 1949, the King CD has been helping the people of King County manage their natural resources. We educate landowners, schools, scientists, consultants and agencies in how to recognize problem situations and how to avoid creating them. We also provide technical assistance in solving their problems.
We promote conservation through demonstration projects, educational events, providing technical assistance and, in some cases, providing or pointing the way to funds which may be available for projects. The King CD has no regulatory or enforcement authority. We only work with those who choose to work with us.
All landowners within the District boundaries are entitled to free information and technical assistance for water quality protection, wildlife habitat enhancement, farm management plans, soil and slope stability information, native plant products, manure exchange information, volunteer opportunities, stream restoration/enhancement assistance and many other natural resource topics.
