Alvarez Organic Farms has been in the agriculture business for well over 30 years. In those same years much of the small, environmentally friendly family farms have morphed into large-scale agribusinesses, without regard on the adverse environmental effects. Being certified organic for over 20 years, sustainable agriculture is one thing that the Alvarez Family has embedded into their farming tradition.
Darlene has been at Redmond Saturday Market since 1994! And who hasn't sampled something sweet for her booth-her treats are a market favorite! She makes a great variety of cookies, bars and pies-oh my!
Tom Williams creates unique, original art for the home and garden. His artistic tools are a little different from what some of us might be used to - instead of a paintbrush or pen, Tom uses a cutting torch, grinder and welder. Tom has combined 40 years of metal trades experience with his art. He made the transition to full time artist in the Spring of 2011. The majority of his work is decorative and functional-to be used outside the home or in the garden. He's raising the bar on the quality of metal art sold at farmers markets and craft fairs with prices most people can afford.
Rick & Sue MacDonald - Blue Stilly Coffee Roasters
Rick and Sue have a shared love for coffee - so much that one day they decided to learn as much as they could about it. The MacDonalds had already tried countless different varieties of coffee and ordered from many roasters. They decided to visit some of the local roasters and discovered that they loved the drum roasted coffee - it has much more depth and flavor. Soon it was time to give it a try on their own.
I enjoy photography, beach combing and gardening.
Putting all three together seems natural.
I produce enhanced close-up pictures of natural objects, including minerals, flowers and shells etc.
All the images I produce depend entirely upon the marvelous interactions between sunlight and natural objects.
I often find unexpected complexity in form and color, as every photographer does. I enjoy exploring the myriad of possibilities and teasing out hidden wonders. Beauty truly is everywhere.

Brian and Calvin Collins - Collins Family Orchards
Collins Family Orchards is located in Selah, WA. Calvin Collins, a third generation farmer, uses his 40+ years of experience to evaluate new farming techniques and varieties. His priority is to implement the best farming practices to keep his trees and his land healthy, productive, and sustainable. We are continuously in search of more perfect fruit, and we test new varieties each year by grafting and planting in an experimental block in the orchard. To earn their keep, new fruit must grow well in our climate and taste great!
We're eager to bring our fruit to market, but we don't rush to pick it. Fruit does not come off the tree until it is ripe and ready, at the peak of flavor!
Ed Buell has lived in the Puget Sound area for over sixty years now, and is lucky enough to be living in the house that his grandparents built in 1931. A couple years ago, Ed found sheets of copper that were left over from the house gutters. He thought to himself, "I've always wanted a copper salmon on my wall". So he broke out the snips and a hammer, and before he knew it he had his first copper salmon on the wall. Ed loved it and loves working with copper. His creations are constantly evolving and he can't wait to see what comes next.
Hello, I am Terri Quale of Country At Heart Designs. I love being an artist at this market! My daughter, Krista Jefferson, of Wild and Whimsical, is an artist here too. It’s a family affair!

I also do decorative painting on wood and metal items such as watering cans, bird houses, mirrors, welcome signs, planters and so much more!
Life is - using the whole box of crayons. Crayons have been a big force in my life for a long time. I am a retired Montessori teacher and had many craft projects with my class.

I design and create all my jewelry myself.
I have been a full time jeweler in Seattle for over 15 years.
I currently work in sterling, bronze, and rhodium. Many people know my “ear art”, jewelry that threads through your ear and sits sideways. Most of my jewelry is organic and inspired by nature. I also carry pounded hammered hoops and initial jewelry. These are excellent gifts.
My work is worn by a wide range of women and I would love to help you find the perfect piece. Please stop by my booth and say hello.

Our first orchard was established in 1928 when great, great grandfather John Holmquist planted our first orchard about 200 feet from the Canadian border. At that time we actually owned land that went into Canada, and had buildings that sat on the border. We now are Washington State’s largest grower and processor, shipping hazelnuts worldwide. Local restaurants include The Space Needle and Anthony’s. Grocery stores include Haggen’s, Top Foods, Whole Foods, Pcc and the Food Co-ops. Though we face some hurdles, we will continue to service the Pacific Northwest and beyond. If you have a hazelnut question, feel free to stop by and talk to me.

Jonboy Caramels is an artisan confectionery company based in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. In 2009, Jon Sue and Jason Alm came together with the idea of making the finest small batch caramels using the very best ingredients available. What started out as a side business soon became a full time endeavor.
One of the aims of Jonboy Caramels is to use ingredients grown and produced close to home such as raspberry and blackberry juice from local berry farms and Pacific Absinthe. Those ingredients paired with local cream and butter, organic brown rice syrup (no corn syrup!) and organic cane sugar all come together to make the finest textured and tasting caramels out there.
I've always called myself crafty (even my students think of me this way). I have dabbled in various types of art since I was little. In college I began to paint again as a stress reliever and my first lazy susan was made as a gift to a friend. I realized functional art was my calling and began painting lazy susans after getting the idea to sell them. Add in the element of art, and I have the opportunity to make people smile. My favorite part of what I get to do at RSM is meet someone who sees a lazy susan and knows EXACTLY who they are going to give it to.

All of our Candles are made from a blend of paraffin & soy waxes, 100% cotton

pattern around the can. Each lantern is filled with scented wax, 4 wicks and lasts
over 60 hours. Refill wax inserts available.
Our company, Mystery Bay Coastal Cuisine, was inspired by our family tidelands, nestled between the Straights of Juan de Fuca and the Pacific Ocean. For the past three generations, the cold water breeds healthy fish and shellfish – a luxury we found vital to share.
In 2003, we joined the amazing group of farmers markets along the Olympic Peninsula and Seattle area, serving wild-caught seafood and locally grown farmfare. Over the past 15 years, our catering company has grown and today our menu includes wild salmon, prawns and cod. Additionally, we make our own proprietary seafood chowder and Caribbean stew. Enjoy!
My name is Chris Benavides and I have been a vendor at the Redmond Saturday Market for 20 plus great years. A few of my passions are designing, sewing and children and because I believe in stimulating a child's imagination I've created Superhero Capes and accessories, Tutus, Dinosaur Tails,Folding Play Mats and many other things. My corner booth at the Market has become a "child magnet" or as I call it "The Kids Corner"! I love what I do and hope that shows through in my creations plus I'm always looking for new ideas!
Paula Gibbons has been a Redmond Saturday Market vendor since 1990! All of Paula's natural, gentle soaps-both bar and liquid alike-are still made in her home. The soaps provide a creamy, responsive lather, and both the liquids and bars last two to three times as long as commercial soaps. Each type has a carefully researched combination of emollients and scents. The ingredients are of the highest quality: olive, almond and coconut oils, true essential oils, etc. Paula maintains Paula's Soaps as an earth-friendly, home based business with the highest standards.
I'm a dabbler in all kinds of crafts, but most of what you'll see at the market is my jewelry. I love bright colors and fun—almost kitschy—images and styles. Those preferences show up in what I make.
My preferred medium is resin. I especially adore seeing how it makes small images pop. I really enjoy mixing in or layering different kinds of paints and glitter (always glitter!) with resin to see what kind of effects I get.
I also love a challenge, so if you have a special project in mind, I’d love to hear about it.

Creating and making designs with fabric is my passion and joy. I am inspired by many things, particularly, the colors of the seasons: the clear bright colors of summer and winter and the warm tones of autumn. I am also drawn to the contrast of black and white geometric prints. One of my favorite design details is the use of cording or piping. I consider this design technique one of my signatures. My designs vary from casual to dressy using fabrics from cotton to silk to wool, and also home decor fabric. I offer quite a variety of items and accessories and enjoy making all of them myself. I hope you will find something for yourself that you will love or a special gift for someone.
Our diversified family farm is over 94 years old. A fifth generation of farm kids play, plant, tend and harvest crops and care for animals.We don't do it alone. The Sanchez family has co managed it along with us. Lupe and Ofelia and daughter Mary Cruz are up at the crack of dawn picking what is in season and tending to the crops.
We finally have our corn ripe! In the old days folks picked corn and ran in the house to a boiling pot of water because it became so starchy.You don't have to do that. Old timers planted once and harvested until they couldn't eat the tough cob. We plant every 10 days so our ears are always young and tender.

They provide fresh, tasty fruit and vegetables grown in a sustainable way and sold at affordable prices.

I am a pastry chef, small business owner, food blogger, struggling writer, but most importantly, I am an enormous lover of all things food. French toast was a staple in our household growing up and often in a breakfast-for-dinner scenario. The first time that sweet, syrupy, egg-laden bread made it onto my fork, it was true love and I've been perfecting my french toast recipe ever since. So, with an over the top, often embarrassing love of food, TÔSTE was born.
I think one of the most wonderful things about art is the ability to bring joy to those who see it. That motivates me to make my pieces unique, uplifting, and with a healthy dose of humor. One of the comments I hear most about my work is that it makes people feel happy just to look at it. Happiness is a simple, but powerful thing and I feel very fortunate knowing that I can bring a little more of it into the world!
