The Auburn Internatinal Farmers Market opens for its 12th season at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 2 in Les Gove Park off Auburn Way South.

Every Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., through the end of September, the market will offer farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, hand-crafted items and restaurant-based concession stands with home-cooked tastes. There’ll be free performances, guest chef demonstrations with farm-fresh ingredients, children’s activities, and classes on health, nutrition and gardening.

The market made the move to Les Gove Park two years ago to avoid potential traffic difficulties and construction barriers related to projects in the downtown area.

Among other attractions at the park are a kids play area and the popular Spray Playground.
