Looking for something to do during May-August? Head to the farmer market.
Tacoma has their farmer’s market on Broadway next to the Pantages theater and if you’re low income – don’t fret – EBT/food stamps is accepted – so it’s open to everyone to get fresh food as popcorn, veggies, fudge and more.
Don’t have cash on hand and rely on food stamps, or WIC?
No worries, the Tacoma’s farmer market accepts and all you have to do is go to the information booth and exchange your form of cash for fresh bucks and tokens to buy some of the fresh food.
Remember that you won’t be able to purchase any of the hot food from the food trucks.
Exploring with the kiddo at the market.
I was able to grab him some fresh caramel popcorn for $5 which was a decent size for a small popcorn – I’d gladly purchase again.
He was also given a token from the information booth for a free apple which he loved and ate while we sampled some chocolate and caramel apple fudge.
When does the Tacoma’s farmers market close?
The market is open every Thursday from 10 am to 3 am. Live music is played, and there are places to sit down and eat your fresh bought food.
If you haven’t been yet, go at least once and you won’t regret it. So cool that there’s all this fresh food in one place and that it occurs every Thursday rain or shine, so bring the kiddos, fill them up with fruit while you pick up a treat for yourself.
