Farm fresh produce delivered to the heart of the city is one reason to visit the Sunday Capitol Hill farmers market in the Seattle Central plaza at Pine and Broadway. A chance to enjoy the next generation in Seattle food and drink start-ups is another. Below, you’ll find the details on the street food providers joining the ranks at the now year-round market this summer including a familiar face or two and some tasty sounding newcomers.
Meanwhile, organizers are also reminding supporters that it’s time to rekindle support for creating a new, bigger, better space for the market in the transit oriented development planned around the Capitol Hill Station project. Before gobbling down the veritable dessert of market food providers, below, mark your calendar for June 2nd:
Let developers know that you support community priorities at the Capitol Hill Station TOD sites. Attend a Community Meeting with short-listed bidders on June 2nd from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the SCC Broadway Performance Hall (corner of Pine and Broadway). Bring your questions! Refreshments will be provided by the Broadway Farmer’s Market. Keep Capitol Hill’s voice strong!
CHS reported last month on the 14 developers in the running to build around the Capitol Hill Station site in a project slated to include affordable housing, a massive injection of retail square-footage on Broadway and, in some shape or form, community space.
Food and drink at the market
Hopefully those developers get a chance to stop by Broadway and Pine on Sundays between 11 AM and 3 PM. Here’s what they can have for lunch this year. Given the mobile, nimble nature of the ventures, keep in mind that schedules and appearances will vary. Track your favorites down on social media to keep tabs on what’s up.
