Best Farmers Market

Columbia City Farmers Market

It feels somewhat mean-spirited to choose a best farmers market, since every market connecting farmers with urban dwellers and eaters with fresh food is doing great work. We might as well choose Seattle's best nun. (Maybe next year.) But, if forced to choose, we're partial to Columbia City's, which ranks as one of the city's most diverse. A bunch of locally grown carrots purchased at the Wednesday-afternoon market is as likely to end up in a chicken afritada as in a Somali goat stew. And this very happy market regularly hosts great produce-centric events, including a spring rhubarb cook-off.
