"Hey, I really love your outfit." 
"Thanks! I guess I'd call it clown chic."
-Sarah, Ballard Farmers Market

What's New at Ballard, Wallingford, & Madrona? 

Julie at Red Barn Organic Farm is back for the season at Ballard with strawberries-red-on-the-runner! She'll have more edible organic produce in the coming weeks. 
You can find  Alvarez Organic Farm at all three SFMA markets with spring onions, fresh roasted peanuts, and the first garlic scapes. 
DrinkingStraws.Glass is bringing eco-friendly glass straws, and the conversation about disposable plastic products, to the Wallingford Farmers Market.

Featured Vendor
Farmer Matt of Foothills Farm
Sedro-Woolley, WA
 
     "I'm really looking forward to just meeting folks on the west side of Seattle." Matt Steinman of Foothills Farm is new to the Wallingford Farmers Market this season and he is jazzed about all things brassicas, pasture raised chickens, and finding out what markets in Seattle have to offer. We caught up with Matt at the market on Wednesday to find out more about Foothills Farm of Sedro-Woolley. 
     In 1948, Matt's grandparents bought the farm, and his grandmother named it. For most of his life, he has lived on the farm; although he just started farming commercially about 6 years ago. His family is growing there together, planting heirloom beans and tending the hens. 
     "We are trying to be as symbiotic as possible. The chickens provide the best fertilizer, create healthy soil, and maintain a healthy ecosystem on the farm', Matt describes his poultry philosophy with loving detail. The proof is in the eggs, AND the cabbage - happy chickens make a happy farm. 
     The Tilth Alliance will be visiting Foothills farm for a tour in July. Find farmer Matt at the Wallingford Farmers Market every Wednesday for more details on this event!
