Year Round Farmer’s Market
In Everett, Snohomish County residents looking for a place to purchase healthy local foods year round will have a farmers’ market to call their own as of July 2014.
Construction of a 60,000 square-feet, year-round Farmers’ Market and Food Hub got under way Tuesday with an official groundbreaking attended by local farmers, residents, project developers and Snohomish County and Everett officials.
The unique Grand Avenue project, between Hewitt Avenue and Wall Street in downtown Everett, will offer shoppers high-quality local fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products as well value-added foods produced onsite with local ingredients.
With development led by Dargey Enterprises and permitting approved by the city of Everett, the market will anchor a 220-unit housing project, offering additional opportunities to a part of Everett experiencing new economic growth.
In addition to the housing project, the marketplace is expected to offer 90 retail spaces of varying sizes to farm producers in Snohomish County and the Puget Sound. Plans also include space for café-style and full-service restaurants so patrons can make a day of shopping at the market.
In October 2012 the Port Commission adopted a development strategy for the Marina District. Extensive public feedback helped shape a new plan for the Marina District Development, that also fulfills the Port Commission’s adopted strategic direction to "get back to basics."
The strategy is adaptable and flexible to meet the project goals of coordination of the marina and upland development, a full-service marina facility, a destination with "quality of place," creates jobs and connects the community to its waterfront, and emphasizes sustainable development. The development strategy was unveiled in early September 2012 to positive public feedback, and the Port Commission adopted the strategy in early October.
The development strategy envisions 200 - 300 housing units and a hotel in the area nearest to Marine Drive, with public access directly to the water in that area. In addition, an employment center (flexible to meet market demands) is planned for the area nearest Waterfront Center, with public access areas nearest the water.
