1. Columbia City Farmers Market
One of the largest farmers markets in the Northwest—this well-loved neighborhood market first opened in June of 1998 in the former Columbia Plaza parking lot (now home of the new PCC) when founder Karen Kinney led a small group of neighborhood volunteers in organizing the market using the burgeoning U-District Farmers Market as a model. CCFM can be found every Wednesday through October, from 3 to 7 pm. (South Edmunds Street at 37th Avenue South/206-547-2278) Columbia Park
