The City remains committed to providing quality events and programs that support the economic welfare of the community of Lake Stevens. The 2020 Lake Stevens Farmers Market was the highlight during a time when our community needed the most support. The market continues to provide a low-barrier entry point for beginning farmers, stimulates our local economy, and increases access to fresh, nutritious food that in turn, supports a healthy community.
With the recent completion of the North Cove Park playground as Phase 2 of the North Cove Park Expansion and Phase 3 construction of the festival street Mill Spur, combined with parking limitations and other new regional markets starting this year, the City and Market Manager have jointly made the hard decision to end the 2021 Lake Stevens Farmers Market summer season early, on Wednesday, August 25, 2021. The market will return to full strength for the 2022 season, with increased accessibility and parking for vendors and the community, with the completion of Mill Spur.
Due to its popularity, the Harvest Market will return in October, more details will be shared as plans become final.
The City thanks the Lake Stevens community for their continued support of both our local vendors and the efforts to transform downtown Lake Stevens, the historic core of the city, both geographically and culturally, with development projects that will attract investment in the downtown area.
