QAFM 2011 Is A Wrap! See The Queen Anne Farmer’s Market Stats For This Year!

The Queen Anne Farmer’s Market ran from June 2nd to October 6th this year and I personally enjoyed it this year. 

According to their website, we had some pretty amazing stats this year on Queen Anne Hill:

As the 2011 market season comes to a close, we thank each and every one of you – our sponsors, local businesses, patrons, vendors and volunteers who were instrumental in producing a very successful season.  QAFM is a unique community-managed market and your support shows what we can accomplish together.

Despite getting a late start this year, the market continued to thrive and to grow.  We, as a whole, provided access to Washington farmers and their fresh, healthy food, hosted food education programs for children and adults, offered a rich variety of ready-to-eat meals and a diversity of free musical programs, all while being a gathering place for our community and greater Seattle.  Our impact on the local economy is substantial and we are proud of our results this season.
