Today – Thursday, Oct. 25 – is the final day of the Discover Burien Farmers Market, which runs from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. at Town Square Park, located at SW 152nd and 5th Place SW.

There will be lots of fall colors, veggies and produce on hand, so be sure to drop by for the final day!

If you can’t Shop Local at today’s Farmers Market, you can Shop Local online from the convenience of your computer at our new online store – Shop SoKing – a new service consisting of locally-owned, independent businesses in the south King County area!

  • Howard and Marge
  • Skinperfect
  • Phoenix
  • Statements
  • Kimberley’s Exquisite Jewelry

  • The Electric Train Shop

    Sorry to see the Farmers Market going away for another long winter. Am especially sorry to have to say goodbye to Sidhu Farms and their insanely good raspberry-rhubarb jam and to Alice Gruenstein and her plants and container gardens up at the north end of the market. Everything in Alice’s inventory is healthy and vigorous and her prices are kind of ridiculously reasonable. Will look for you all again next spring.
