We’re thrilled to be back in-person for our Sammamish Valley Alliance (SVA) Spring Celebration. Help us support our local small farms and businesses throughout every season!
Mark your calendars for all of our 2022 events:
Sammamish Valley Spring Celebration, Saturday May 7th; Sammamish Valley Summer Celebration, Saturday, July 23rd; and, Sammamish Valley Fall Harvest Celebration, Saturday, September 24th. Plan to join our community as we strive to ensure a long-term growing season, bringing peace, health and happiness to all of our friends and neighbors during this unprecedented time.
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more on how you can support local farms, visit 21 Acres for some great information provided by 21 Acres, on what you can do to help. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you this year for our seasonal Celebration events.
Celebrate the spring season this year by stopping by the local farm stands, markets and stores that support local agriculture in our beautiful Sammamish Valley. We’re happy to be back in-person for our 2022 Spring Celebration, not only on Saturday, May 7th, but throughout spring, as we encourage the public to purchase local, fresh, pesticide free food that’s grown right in our own neighborhoods. You’ll enjoy springtime beauty as you visit our host location, 21 Acres in Woodinville; and, as you wander around the Valley, you’ll learn about our environmentally sustainable agriculture community.
Whether you grab some veggies at the farm market, get a jar of honey or jam at your favorite farm store or pick up a gorgeous bouquet from a street side farm stand, your local purchase will impact the economic vitality of the entire Sammamish Valley.
All ages are always welcome but don’t forget your mask, required when exploring indoors.

(Make sure you check in with each individual location to verify hours.) If you’d like to see more, visit About Farms to access a complete list of our local Farms.

Viva Farms-King County Student Farm & Farm Business Incubator
16215 140th Place NE
In partnership with SAgE Collaborative (Sustainable Agriculture Education), our King county location is in the Sammamish Valley on the urban fringe of the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Like our original Skagit Valley farm business incubator, the Woodinville site offers land, equipment, infrastructure and training for beginning farmers to launch independent farm businesses. The urban incubator is comprised of smaller-scale and more intensive farming operations that reflect the location of the site and proximity to a larger urban center.

Opening day, Saturday, May 7th. Offering fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, handmade arts & crafts, and more. The market operates each Saturday from 10am to 3pm between May and September.
