Farmers Markets

With more than 2,500 farms in Spokane County alone, it’s no wonder that there is an abundance of farmers markets in Spokane and the surrounding areas. 

Many of these farms operate on a seasonal basis, beginning in the spring, thriving through summer, and lasting into October. Some continue to sell their harvest during the winter with indoor markets through the cold months.

Markets in Town

Check out Kendall Yards Night Market for an evening twist on the traditional farmers market. Wednesdays May through October, this gathering

delivers fresh produce alongside food vendors, live music, and special events. Seize the opportunity to scoop up locally-made artisan crafts like fragrant handmade soaps or freshly roasted coffee then stop in for dinner or drinks at one of many locally-owned businesses along Summit Parkway.

Other great options for assembling fresh food for a complete a farm-to-table meal and shopping local wares include the Thursday Market in Spokane’s South Perry District and the Spokane Valley Farmers Market held on Fridays at CenterPlace Regional Event Center.
