In addition to weekly musical entertainment from a variety of bands and solo artists, the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market features regular events, such as cooking demos, book readings for all ages, craft fairs, cider pressing and kids’ activities.

The number and frequency of events has increased with each year the market has been in operation. Normally, special events are scheduled almost weekly – including our popular KERNEL kids’ activities. Other events include a hands-on composting workshop, a home canning and pickling demo, a vermiculture tutorial, book readings and more.

Over the years many businesses and nonprofits have taken advantage of the casual, friendly atmosphere to set up an outreach table and raise awareness about their services. In the past the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market has hosted booths by local AllState agents, Spokane Arts, the Main Market Co-op, United Healthcare, the Lands Council, BECU neighborhood schools and many others.

If you’d like to partner with the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market to schedule an activity, conduct a workshop or set up an outreach table, please get in touch via We’re always receptive to new suggestions and opportunities!
