Neighborhood Farmers Markets (NFM) operates seven farmer/food only markets in Seattle. Three are open year-round, including:

  • UNIVERSITY DISTRICT (UDFM), Saturdays, 9am - 2pm, between 50th and 52nd on University Way NE
  • WEST SEATTLE (WSFM), Sundays, 10am - 2pm, California Ave SW & SW Alaska
  • CAPITOL HILL BROADWAY (BFM), Sundays, 11am-3pm, Broadway and E. Pine St.

A few of the featured crops for Super Bowl weekend include potatoes, winter squash, apples, and pears. We liked the idea of SMASHED potatoes, STUFFED SQUASH, and ORANGE SQUASH soup. It reminds us of what the Seattle Seahawks blue-and-green will do to the orange Denver Broncos on Sunday.

So here are a few Super Bowl party worthy recipes featuring these seasonal farmers market ingredients, from appetizers to a couple of orange-themed soups, plus smashed sides, and more. All are crowd pleasers:

The NFM mission is to support and strengthen Washington’s small farms and farming families by operating vibrant, successful neighborhood farmers markets. They provide direct sales opportunities for 100 of our region’s small farms, healthy produce to city residents, and consumers education about local agriculture. Twelve directors govern the NFM; four directors are farmers elected by market vendors. The remaining board members represent Seattle neighborhoods where the Markets take place, or are citywide representatives. NFM markets are recognized nationally as some of the best in the US, and have been featured by CNN, The New York Times, Alaska Airlines inflight magazine, Sunset Magazine, Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Seattle Magazine, the Seattle Times and the PI, KUOW and other local and national media.
