The Auburn Produce Market now is in business on the corner of 22nd Street and Auburn Way North.
Dave Thomas and his son, Danny, went from cabinetry and electrician work to running an indoor produce stand that will be open year round. They credit Rick Burns, owner of North Shore Quality Produce in Federal Way, with guiding them on their “adventure.”
In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, customers are provided with a variety of local products. For coffee drinkers, there is a selection of roasts from Seattle’s Caff Appassionato. In the snack department, there are chips and salsas from Penny’s in Auburn, dried fruits, nuts and trail mix from Sumner’s Nature’s World and Uncle Woody’s caramel corn made in Seattle.
A selection of gourmet condiments is joined with bread from the Coeur D’Alene French Baking Co. in Kent and Finales gourmet desserts in Lynnwood. The “Buck Bin” offers special deals on select produce and samples of products are available throughout the market.
The store, which is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, is located at 2121 Auburn Way N.
