It’s market season again and the Juanita Friday Market officially opens for its 2019 season on June 7.
For the 13th year, Juanita Friday Market will bring fresh produce, beautiful flowers, gourmet food, artisan products and a fun-filled environment for the community. Some returning long-time vendors include Trimmed Wick, Essential Hardware Jewelry, Mador Farms, Teeny Farms, Susu Rolled Ice Cream and more. New vendors include Rolly’s Orchard LLC, War Pony Leather, Sugar Bytes Cupcake and More, Tropical Berry and more.
The market will feature live music every week and host special events every last Friday of the month. On opening day, the market is hosting Kids Day.
“What makes Juanita Market is that it has a nice community family feel,” program assistant Tina Lathia said. “We have the same customers that come year after year and new ones that have discovered the market. Vendors that have been with us for a long time are here too. Honestly it feels like family…it’s a good, lively environment. It’s a community event that has a wonderful feeling.”
Lathia added that customers can come to the market, buy their produce and then hang out at the beach. During the market, traffic will blocked off and overflow parking is located across the street near the ball park.
“We want people to stop by and get their shopping done and find that they need,” Lathia said.
Juanita Friday Market will run from 3-7 p.m., every Friday from June 7 to Sept. 27. The market is located at Juanita Beach Park at 9703 NE Juanita Dr.
