Bothell’s queen and king of fresh produce

Karin Poage humbly submits that a freshly baked russet potato is “sublime.”

She would know. Karin — and her husband Stuart — own and operate the Yakima Fruit Market and Nursery, which has stocked fresh produce and grocery items from across the region for over 80 years. In fact, it just might be the oldest continuously operating business in Bothell.

“My retirement plan is to fall over dead right here,” Karin says.

Stop by, say hi to Karin and Stuart, and grab a bag of russets any day of the week from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m..
