It's feeding time for alpaca at Redmond Saturday Market | SLIDESHOW

Main photo: Abigail Horoho, 2, feeds an alpaca as Julia Ruan, 6, watches at the Redmond Saturday Market last weekend. The market opened at 9 a.m. to kick off its 39th season at 7730 Leary Way next to Redmond Town Center.

Mayor John Marchione cut the ribbon to open the market with a soundtrack provided by the Redmond High School band.

Heart of Dreams alpacas and lamas and members of the Redmond Historical Society, King County Master Gardeners and Redmond Fire Department were on hand all day. The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday, May through October.

The market features 80 vendors weekly, including organic choices in produce, fruits, berries, cheese, eggs, meats, plants, herbs, flowers, breads, jams, honey, fish, specialty sauces and nuts. For lunch, there are crepes, tamales, pizza, Italian food, shave ice, popcorn and pastries.

Listen to live bands every Saturday and find one-of-a-kind gifts made by local artisans. Chef demos, zucchini races, story time, cowboys, hula dancers, kids day and pet parades are just some of the fun in store for this season.
