West Seattle Sunday: The Farmers’ Market moves! and more

The big event today: The West Seattle Farmers’ Market moves to its new home in the street!

(Photo added 8:48 am, as vendors set up)
FARMERS’ MARKET MOVE: Today is the first day for the West Seattle Farmers’ Market to set up in its new permanent home, California Avenue SW between Oregon and Alaska. Hours are the same, 10 am-2 pm; each Sunday, that block will be off-limits to vehicles 7 am until approximately 4 pm. Check out this WSB update to find out about some of the new vendors. And check out Junction businesses and restaurants while you’re there – some will have celebratory specials, such as WSB sponsor Click! Design That Fits (4540 California SW, right on the market block). We’ll have a separate story about the first day of the market move – come back to WSB later today or tonight and share your thoughts about it.

    So every Sunday that one block of California Ave. SW will be closed to vehicles 7-4?

      Yes. Summer Fest weekend, as noted in our previous preview (we finally got confirmation on this), the market will be back in its old home since California SW will be full of festival booths (that weekend, July 10-12, Calif. is offlimits to vehicles from Oregon to Edmunds 24/7 starting Thursday night 7/9 around 6 pm and continuing until late Sunday night 7/12). – Tracy
