The 2016 Farmers’ Market Season Begins…

Spring has sprung. We know this because of the families picnicking in Wright Park, the sidewalk tables downtown with people at them, and the amount of pollen in the air. We also know it because last weekend the Proctor Farmers' Market kicked off its regular weekly market season last Saturday. 

The Proctor Farmers' Market will continue every Saturday now through December. This means months of fresh, local, organic, grass-fed, cage-free deliciousness. This year it looks like the Proctor Market will continue its beer/wine/cider tasting program, alongside weekly live music and kids' activities.

This week you can get handcrafted small batch plum and apple brandies from Delich Distillery (we highly recommend the apple brandy), along with meats, seafood, cheeses, and of course the beginning of fruits and veggies for the year, and plant starts to start you own garden off with. Get the scoop on what's fresh now at

Regular Season

It will be another month until we start seeing other locations roll out the awnings, but those days will be here before you know it, so mark your calendar now. This year you'll have four Tacoma Farmers' Markets to choose from all summer, as well as a fifth short-season market at MultiCare. Details on these markets at
