Wallingford Farmers Market Opens Wednesday May 16

Close to Green Lake, this Farmers Market has several stalls of fresh food, produce and ready to eat dinner. And, if you have tiny ones, its the best Farmers Market for free range runners. Huge fields and a nice playground make this market a great spot for families. But take note, parking is difficult and much of the area requires permit parking after 5 so watch those signs.

Every Wednesday 3 – 7 p.m. through late September. For more information, go to the Wallingford Farmers Market site.
