The Everett Farmers Market is a member of the Washington State Farmers Market Association (WSFMA) and was founded in July 1994 by Marie Brayman with a big vision, but just a few vendors, in an empty unpaved lot just west of what is now Lowes Hardware store. Marie had the determination and patience to stick with it to get the market off the ground and nurture it through its early growing pains. Old time vendors remember standing on large rocks in the rain and mud, with water running between their feet, waiting for customers to find the market
When the Port of Everett agreed to allow the market on the Port property, things began to really jump forward. To begin with, the parking lot was unpaved, and there was no water for flower vendors or electricity for cooking or music amplification. Feet were still wet, hauling water and cooking was a problem, but the Market had a great view and the possibility of becoming a DESTINATION.
Since those early days, the Port of Everett has paved the lot, added electricity, added access to fresh water, and even added 220 volt electricity all to help make the market a success. The Port Staff has worked with the Market Managers and the market’s neighbors to allow everyone to share parking and facilities in a way that lets everyone be successful. The Port Commissioners have been able to directly contribute to the quality of life of the Everett community by encouraging and enhancing the Everett Farmers Market.
