This year's market season will run from June 1st to September 14th.
The park is a forested 84-acre site immediately adjacent to Silver Firs, The Highlands, and Snohomish Cascade; three miles east of Mill Creek.

Farmers Market at Willis Tucker was created by William Moody and Jim Beatty, who also serve as the market’s managers. William Moody brings twenty years of experience in customer service and relations, as well as a passion for organic farming and gardening, to the market. Jim Beatty has over thirty-five years of managerial experience. William’s wife, Teddi Yaeger, is in charge of marketing, having successfully run her own photography business for the past nine years. She also has prior experience in Web design and market research.
The mission of Farmers Market at Willis Tucker is to create a gathering place where members of the local community can support and learn from local farmers, food vendors, and artisans. In order to provide customers with a full and varied market experience, the market managers are carefully selecting vendors based on quality, customer service, quantity, and uniqueness.
The market managers are currently seeking vendors who support their goal of providing community members access to fresh, healthy, and locally grown products. This includes farmers, beekeepers, food processors, prepared food vendors and artisans/craftsmen. To apply, vendors may call (206-683-8209) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) William Moody to receive an application.
For the 2012 season there will be a total of 25 vendor spaces.
In addition to the regular vendors Buns on Wheels, voted one of Seattle's best burgers and food trucks, will be on hand. Buns on Wheels has received top accolades by the likes of Sunset magazine and Seattle Met magazine. They use 100% grass fed beef, locally grown chicken, salmon, speciality fries and more.
There will be live music and the YMCA (Mill Creek branch) will be providing children's activities from 3-5pm.
