The Sequim Farmers Market is celebrating the end of a great harvest season with multiple events on Saturday, Oct. 27!

It is time to get creative for the Sequim Farmers Market Decorated Pumpkin Contest, open to all ages.

Bring your completed decorated pumpkin to the market on Saturday and display your masterpiece in one of four categories, including: Carved Pumpkins, Painted Pumpkins, Mixed Media and Youth.

Market attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite pumpkin in each category, with results announced at 1:30 p.m.

Saturday is also Kid’s Day at the market! The Organic Seed Alliance is a special guest at the Kid’s Day Activity Booth this week, bringing seed pods so that kids can try seed cleaning and winnowing. Kids can take the seeds they clean, home to plant in their garden.

Sequim Museum & Arts will have a 1953 Ferguson tractor at the market for kids to learn about and sit on.

At 10:30 a.m., local yoga teacher Julia Buggy is back at the market with a fall-themed kid’s yoga class, outside under the shelter of the Sequim Civic Center building.

Visit the Kid’s Day Activity Booth to participate and receive a $2 coupon for fresh fruits and vegetables at the market, available while supplies last. Kid’s Day events at the Sequim Farmers Market are made possible with generous support from WSU Clallam County Extension and Olympic View Community Foundation.

Find your favorite Sequim Farmers Market artisan vendors at two special Holiday Markets, held indoors at the Guy Cole Convention Center from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Nov. 17 and Dec. 22.

A special thanks to Bell & Davis Law, Brokers Group Real Estate, First Federal Savings & Loan, for supporting the Sequim Farmers Market in 2018.
