Located smack dab between Seattle and Tacoma, and most famous for its airport, this tiny city, measuring ten square miles, with a population of 25,230, is launching it's own farmers market.

The SeaTac Sunday Farmers Market will open mid-June, and will be held at Angle Lake Park, 19408 International Boulevard, SeaTac. The market will operate Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 15-September 14, 2008.

So if you've leave yourself a little extra time on the way to the airport, you might want to pick up the perfect local gift on the way to your flight. Perhaps some smoked salmon, a bag of locally-grown hazelnuts, some tulips, perhaps a delicious baked good? Yes, good snacking for the plane.

And if you're a vendor, SeaTac is looking for you, and offering a sweat deal:

For the 2008 season we are waiving any registration fees and percentages of gross sales to our first season vendors. For the 2008 season stall fees will be at a flat rate of $15 per each market day, with vendors that sign up and prepay for the full 14 week season receiving two market days free.
