Kenmore Community Market opens at Cedar Park Northshore

The Kenmore Community Market is quickly becoming a Thursday evening tradition for locals after its June 1 opening.

“It’s just exhilarating to have it finally open,” said Jenni Jensen, market manager and administrator at Cedar Park Northshore Church, where the market is held.

She went on to thank the City of Kenmore and her fellow church members for their support in getting the market going.

“That was very helpful,” she said.

The Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce organized a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the market on opening day, with local officials, representatives from the church, vendors and community members on hand to celebrate.

The Kenmore Community Market has been a long time coming for many residents, including City Councilmember Stacey Denuski.

“Everybody — every year — has always been asking for a farmers market in Kenmore,” she said at the opening. “It’s wonderful this is here for people to come, meet their neighbors and walk their dogs around — it builds community.”

In addition to produce and flower vendors, the market features a variety of vendors who offer prepared food, clothing and other household items such as candles and soaps. The church will also be collecting donations for its food bank every week.

The market will be open from 3-8 p.m. every Thursday through Aug. 31 at Cedar Park Northshore, located at 18737 68th Ave. N.E. Parking is available onsite. For more information, visit kenmoremarket.com or call Jensen at (425) 939-1377.
