(Redmond/Bellevue) Where to find good produce?

Lately, I have found that the quality of produce in the supermarkets around here is rather disappointing, and I'm interested in finding some new sources that might have better produce. It's just about the time of year when the farmer's markets start up again, and I know of a couple of them (the Saturday Market in Redmond, and I believe there's one at Crossroads on Thursday) but what else is out there?

  1. The farmers market moves around each day of the week. Kirkland and Bellevue have their days too. Uwajimaya in Redmond/Bellevue has good produce. If you want to pay premium prices, Whole Foods is in both Redmond and Bellevue.

    1. re: kirkj

      I believe (at least last year) Kirkland is midday on Wednesday and Bellevue is afternoon/evening on Thursdays. I think they start up in May and run through October.

      Otherwise, Pike Place is open year round, and I find that early on weekend mornings, you don't have the tourist crowds to contend with.

    2. Yakima Fruit Market on 522 in Bothell. They bring in fresh veggies, fruit, plants and a limited amount of dairy products and bread every day from farms around the area. If you want the freshest...this is the place.
