Kirkland residents can finally get a taste of summer with the Kirkland Wednesday Market and the Juanita Friday Market.
Earlier this week Kirkland celebrated the first day of the Kirkland Downtown Association’s Kirkland Wednesday Market, which has COVID-19 safety guidelines in place including wearing cloth face covering and staying six feet apart. That market runs Wednesdays, 3 to 7 p.m. until Sept. 30 in Marina Park. The market has local produce from over 35 vendors. More information on the Wednesday market is available here.
On Friday, June 12, Kirkland residents can now walk through the Juanita Friday Market— with some social distancing guidelines in place. The market, which started last week with drive-thru access only and the ability to pre-purchase from vendors, is open every Friday 3 to 7 p.m. until Sept. 25 at 9703 Northeast Juanita Drive.
Last week on the first day of the Friday market, customers shopped directly from there vehicle, a service which will still be available. The city states on its website that on-foot shoppers should allow for extra time, due to a limit on the number of customers that can be within the market at a given time.
Friday Market shoppers can to purchase in advance for curbside pickup from vendors using contact information here. Vendors include Kirkland locals HER Kitchen and Sugar Bytes Cupcakes. The map below highlights the designated parking spots for pickup.
Kirkland has created a FAQ on market safety that can be viewed here. They recommend anyone in a high-risk group to stay home and send someone to do shopping for them.
