The 19th annual market will open on Tuesday, June 2 at 3 p.m. in Gateway Park (South Third Street and Logan Avenue South in downtown Renton), just west of its usual location in Piazza Park. The market will continue every Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m. through September 29. Free two-hour parking is available at the City Center Garage (655 S. Second St.). The market is also adjacent to the Renton Transit Center for easy access from public transportation.

“We are fortunate to be opening Renton’s Farmers Market during these difficult times and I want to thank our volunteers and vendors who make our farmers market in Renton so spectacular,” said Renton Mayor Armondo Pavone.

In 2020, the market will operate as a quick in-and-out destination for essential food shopping. Market organizers ask that you consider sending only one shopper per household and bringing a shopping list. This will allow a maximum number of people to enjoy.

Remember, only service animals are allowed in the market.

The market will follow COVID-19 regulations established by Public Health – Seattle & King County (PHSKC). There will be a separate entrance and exit so market staff can monitor the number of shoppers and ensure proper social distancing. Please follow the directions on all posted signage and maintain proper social distancing while in line.

Shoppers will also be asked to wear face coverings to adhere to the PHSKC directive that took effect on May 18.

The successful SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Bucks program returns. The market also offers a dollar-for-dollar match with the SNAP Market Match Bucks (formerly Fresh Bucks), which doubles buying power.
