Opening day at the Federal Way Farmers Market

Market is open every Saturday through October.

The Federal Way Farmers Market greeted its 2022 season on Saturday. Unmasked smiles, bright floral bouquets and cinnamon sugar doughnuts helped warm up the crowd.

Thomas Jefferson High School’s band performed for the market goers before Pastor Dan Larson led the invocation. Key Club students from Federal Way High School assisted with opening day operations. In the afternoon, Folklore Mexicano Tonantzin dancers performed at the market.

Posters awarded to supporters of the market were created by Cindy Squires and photographer Stacy Gibson. Market Director Rose Ehl presented posters to Mayor Jim Ferrell, Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce CEO Rebecca Martin, BECU Crossings Branch Manager Ina Ciubara, Yvonne San Luis (designer of the market posters), Federal Way Mirror Sales Manager Cindy Ducich, Heritage Bank Manager Randy Hodge and Real Estate Agent Vickie Chynoweth.

Each week, new vendors and seasonal products arrive at the market.

This year, some new faces at the market include Little Green Ferin candles with owner Stephanie Martin, Mackenzie Premel and Meagan Wittle, returning for their first full season with the market. Owner Khaysyn Harvey of Auburn is selling t-shirts, hoodies, tumblers and more for the first time at the farmers market with her stand Kaio Khai’s. Sweet Daisy Chinese food is also a new addition to the market eats.

Federal Way’s Got Talent, the market’s summer talent show, begins June 4. For more information, contact FederalWayFarmersMarketEvents@yahoo.com.

The Federal Way Farmers Market is located behind The Commons mall along South 324th Street in Federal Way. The market is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday through October.
