Black Diamond Farmer's Market

Fresh, Fun, Friendly!


WANTED – Artists

Black Diamond Farmers Market has space available for artists and crafters who would like to show off their works of art and sell pieces to the wandering customers.  Rent a space and display your creations.  Show off your talent.  Whatever your art media is, a spot can be rented on a weekly basis.

Art that may be available at the Black Diamond Farmers Market:

  • Paintings
  • Drawings
  • Pottery
  • Woodworking

If your talent is mobile enough you could even set up an “Artist In Action” display, and create your works of art right in your space.  This would create an excellent opportunity to dialogue with potential customers about the way the art is created.

June 3rd is the first day for the Black Diamond Farmers Market in our new location.  We will be located next to the Black Diamond Gym, off of Lawson street, across from the Police Station.

Don’t forget about Rhubarb Fest, June 3rd, the theme for opening day of the Black Diamond Farmers Market.  See ya there, Brock Deady

Here are a couple of facts about rhubarb, that are brought to us by “Seattle Urban Farm Company,” check them out at http://www.seattleurbanfarmco.com:

  1. It is a Vegetable.
  2. It is an easy plant to grow and does well in almost any climate.
  3. Once it is established a rhubarb plant can last for years without much care.
  4. Harvest rhubarb by grabbing a stalk and pull it from the plant, remove the leaf and you are ready to cook it up.
  5. Rhubarb leaves are poisonous to people and pets, so don’t add them to your vegetable garden compost.
