Christianson’s new farmers market opening
Has fresh produce, old-time pea harvest stories
May 19, 2021
The Skagit Valley Farmers Market at Christianson’s Nursery makes its debut May 30 on a site once central to the pea harvest on the Skagit Flats.
The market will be open 10 a.m.-2 p.m. most Sundays through the summer.
The new kid-and-dog-friendly market will feature a nice mix of produce and crafts, says manager Kathryn Shiohira, who just happens to be food safety specialist and a driver for the Puget Sound Food Hub right next door.
“The cool thing is these farmers are already set up and ready to go, because to be part of the Food Hub you must have your ducks in a row,” she said.
