The Federal Way Farmers Market will open for the 2011 season Saturday, May 7, at the former AMC Theatres site, located at 31600 20th Ave. S. near the transit center. Note the new location, as the market spent its first seven seasons in the Sears parking lot at The Commons Mall.

The market will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting with a pancake breakfast. More than 70 vendors have signed up for the market’s opening day. Vendors will be selling fresh produce, flowers, refreshments and more. Master Gardener Lou Spader will deliver a presentation at 11:30 a.m. on starting a garden. There will be prizes and giveaways all day. In addition, those who bring canned food donations can bounce in a "bouncy house."
