Tastings

Throughout the season, the Mercer Island Farmers Market offers a tasting table where customers can learn about market produce and products.  Check out the 2016 Calendar  to find out about Tastings planned for this season.

Tasting Aug 12 By tasting different varieties, our community members develop a deeper appreciation for the wide variety of flavors, textures, sizes, and tastes of the fruits and vegetables found at the market. They might learn that a “peach” is not just a “peach,” now it is a Suncrest, Red Haven, or a Rosa Hale all with different tastes and uses.

Some tastings will feature ready-to-eat foods from our vendors with their simple recipes for preparing delicious healthy food at home. Special thanks to our sponsors and especially New Seasons for supporting the market tastings.
