Seattle Wholesale Growers Market Gathers Steam!

(…continued from Summer Seasonal Newsletter)

Not to be confused with PSFN’s Wholesale Markets, this cooperative of growers from Washington, Oregon, and Alaska brings together the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer in locally grown cut flowers, greens and ornamentals.

As a PSFN member, the Seattle Wholesale Growers Cooperative sought technical assistance from NABC in establishing this cooperative and the market.  NABC’s Jeff Voltz was essential in helping to organize the cooperative. PSFN is hosting a page for the market on our website and develops and sends the weekly fresh sheet for the market (to subscribe, contact ann@agbizcenter.org).

The market’s soft opening was April 20, but a cold spring delayed many crops by 3-4 weeks. Because of this, only some member farmers participated is the early part of the season. With the Grand Opening of the market May 18, the market has been open for business for nearly 2 months and is thriving!

Just look at these flowers!
