As so many West Seattleites (myself included for the past 15 years until recently moving to Vashon) enjoyed taking a ferry trip over for the weekend or a day trip. Covid has certainly added to the complications of traveling for leisure and extending ferry wait times. VIGA the organization that hosts the Vashon Farmers Market, made the tough decision to keep our producers and community safer by not hosting the physical market this year. Vashon Fresh is our online farmers market that we’ve used in conjunction to the physical market for the past 5 years.
We have received a landslide of requests over the past few months to extend our distribution days or create a pick up location in West Seattle. As many of our Vashon vendors were unable to secure their off island market booths due to limited stall availability, local West Seattle customers are reaching out.
We are so pleased to be partnering with the Fauntleroy Church to offer a safe contactless pick up location for Vashon Fresh items. Everything sold on Vashon Fresh is either grown or processed on Vashon Island creating a true farm to table experience. All producers are fully licensed and insured as well as our staff ensuring our procedures for aggregation are as per CDC and local safety guidelines. Masked, gloved and 6ft away. We are opening our pick up location beginning this Saturday Aug. 8th: 2:30pm-4:00pm. Online Ordering is open, all items will be pre-order only! Please be sure to confirm your order by 11:50pm on Friday for your Saturday items….farm fresh indeed. Harvested day of pick up.
