Our Story

In 2010, a coalition of groups began working to introduce the first phase of the project, a Farmers Market to promote locally grown food and offer educational demonstrations related to food culture.

To support the development of the market, the City of Stanwood, with assistance from Northwest Agriculture Business Center, applied for and was awarded a Farmers Market Promotion Program grant in October of 2011 with the City of Stanwood acting as the fund administrator.

In August 2012, the Port Susan Farmers Market was launched in downtown Stanwood where local farmers and food processors sold their goods back to the community with an underlying concept of getting eaters in touch with those who produce their food.

By 2023, the Stanwood Farmers Market has expanded to a 20-week season boasting some of the region's best in agriculture, artisanal foods, and locally-made art.  The market is home to over 70 vendors, averages 1000+ customers each week, and supports small businesses to the tune of over $430,000 in product sales each year.  We are proud to offer food assistance services in partnership with the Department of Health, WIC and FMNP offices as well as SNAP market benefits. 

You can find us Fridays, June through mid-October at 8727 271st St NW, Stanwood, 98292

Our POP Kids program is a food discovery area featuring activities for children designed to attract more families and engage children in food and nutrition education.  Parents enroll their children into the POP Club and each participant receives a personalized membership badge and a healthy snack provided by farm vendors.  Activities include veggie painting, a scavenger hunt, bee day and more.  Children between the ages of 2 and 12 are currently encouraged to enroll.

We thank our local partners in the WSU Extension Office for their support of the POP Club program.
