The tulips are blooming and there's talk of fresh spring vegetables, which means it must be time to start planning our farmers market visits. To help navigate you through the upcoming openings around town, we present this updated calendar of Puget Sound farmers markets on the verge (or at the beginning) of their 2014 seasons. Listed according to opening date, this guide spans Seattle, the eastside and the islands. 

If your favorite farmers market is not on this list, please let us know in the comments!
