Each Friday afternoon, the Emerson-Garfield Farmers Market pops up in the parking lot of the Spokane Community College IEL Adult Education Center on North Monroe.
For years the North Monroe Business District has encouraged all of Spokane to “Meet on Monroe” and as the market enters its ninth summer, it has grown into a hub for vendors and community organizations to come together each week, inviting those in the neighborhood and from across the Spokane area to come and enjoy all that the local businesses have to offer.
Visit the market early in the afternoon and stop for a beer on Bellwether Brewing’s patio or at the recently opened Four-Eyed Guys Brewing Co. tasting room before heading home to make dinner with all your fresh produce. Or buy everything you need for the week and reward yourself with dinner at one of the fantastic local restaurants along Monroe like Elliotts: An Urban Kitchen and Prohibition Gastropub.
Thanks to its hours and location, the Emerson-Garfield Farmers Market can serve as a fantastic meeting point for friends and families looking to connect, enjoy the fresh air, and kick off a weekend of local food and fun!
