I was pleasantly surprised that the Redmond farmer’s market is actually a very functional market with quite a few vendors who are there to sell their produce, why? I have visited a few markets here in the area and found them to be more of a gimmick where “artisans” sell their products demanding ridiculous prices for things that are really not that special – in Issaquah I was amazed by the smoked salmon guys who charged about 5 times higher a price than smoked salmon costs in a store, I understand its a small business and its local and yada yada yada but seriously..? Five times the price??? So I was very happy to find out that the market in Redmond had a lot of produce (think Zucchini flowers & english peas) including organic produce as well as cheeses, breads, cakes and multitude of jams and sauces. I was also happy to find some of my childhood favorites not found in abundance in this area, Gooseberries and Red Currants, yum!
Will gladly go again!
