What’s New at the Market: 2017 season, here we come!

What’s New at the Market

Saturday May 6 — Opening Day

Every Saturday May-October

9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Live music mid-June to mid-September

Well, you may have thought that the Sequim Farmers Market was sleeping all winter, but guess again! It has been one busy beehive of activity as the market gets ready to open its doors in our magnificent new location and with a whole new look and feel.

On May 6, you will find us in our downtown location, Centennial Place which is the lot on the corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street, plus the newly redesigned space on Washington Street called “Whimsy Park.”

This will be a one-time stop for the market during the first weekend of the Irrigation Festival.

Starting May 13 and then every Saturday until Oct. 28, we will be back in our old neighborhood. The Sequim Farmers Market will be open each Saturday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on the Civic Center Plaza and flowing down Cedar Street.

The market is growing every day, new vendors are coming so we will be joyfully back on Cedar in addition to the plaza. This will be our 22nd year in operation.

On Saturday, May 20, we will be hosting the biggest party in Sequim. There will be festivities throughout the day to celebrate our move and our new logo.

There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at noon. There will be a commemorative bench being placed to celebrate a former vendor and board chair Suzanne Arnold who gave so much to the market and passed on suddenly during her time of involvement with the market. That will take place on Cedar Street.

There will be a fabulous dance band, Joy in Mudville, playing from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. There will be a raffle taking place all day with lots of handmade prizes from the vendors. We look forward to seeing you all there.

We are happy to share that we have over a dozen new vendors, including two new produce vendors, River Run Farm and Kol Simcha Farm (who were with us many years ago). Stay tuned throughout the season as I share interviews with the new vendors every other week. In addition this year, I will be writing an article the weeks in between that celebrate what is being harvested from the local fields and a recipe that goes along with.

We are so grateful to the many, many businesses in Sequim that sponsor the market. It is essential for the vitality of the market to be intertwined and sharing resources with the local business community. Thank you to all these businesses for doing just that!

Sponsors include: BrokerGroup Real Estate, First Federal, Bell &Davis, Sequim Lavender Growers Association, UPS Store, All Safe Storage, Insurance Services Group, Jefferson Propane, Wilder Auto, Alderwood Bistro, Angeles Furniture, In Graphic Detail, New Dungeness Gold, Sea Basket Farm, Sequim Bee Farm, Smoothie Essentials, Studio By The Creek, Wave Cable, The Home Depot, Whimsical Woods, The Co-op Farm &Garden, DEKA Uniquities, Dungeness Courte Memory Care, Hurricane Ridge Veterinary Clinic, Les Schwab, Rainshadow Coffee and Rockin Rocks.

Come celebrate the season of spring with a visit to the Sequim Farmers Market!
