emerson garfield neighborhood council

Emerson–Garfield Neighborhood Council

We are situated at the heart of historic Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood, which was one of the first neighborhoods to be officially recognized by the City of Spokane. Its all-volunteer neighborhood council—composed of residents, business owners and community leaders—actively collaborates with businesses, schools, faith-based institutions and other organizations to bring about positive grassroots change and constantly improve the quality of life in Emerson-Garfield.

EG Farmers Market

Emerson–Garfield Farmers' Market

The Emerson-Garfield Farmers' Market launched in 2013 as a joint initiative of the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council and Project Hope Spokane. Its aim is to make healthy, locally grown and produced food affordable and accessible for everyone while also serving as a regular, fun community event in the North Monroe Business District. The market runs every Friday from June through September, and traditionally concludes with a festive end-of-harvest cider press event!
