Bicyclists, mothers and seniors, oh my!

Sequim Farmers Market

9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, May 11

On Saturday, May 11, Sequim Farmers Market returns to our home at the Civic Center Plaza where we will be for the rest of the season. Cedar Street will be closed and we will expand onto the street.

May is National Bike Month. Get on your bike and join the fun. To celebrate, Ben’s Bikes has donated a bike tune-up gift certificate. Market visitors who arrive on their bike Saturday can enter to win. There will be experts on hand to answer any question about bike maintenance and biking around our community. Olympic Peninsula Bicycle Alliance, bike day event sponsor, will have a community booth and Sequim Bike Works is organizing bicycle demonstrations throughout the day.

Our vendor community grows to over 35 artisan and food vendors this week. The food vendors are a sight for sore eyes after the long winter — Hurricane Hills Winery will be back with artisan wine from local fruit in unique varieties ranging from dry to sweet. Garry Flynn and award-winning Sequim Bee Farm will present local delectable honey. Sativa Valley, Sea Basket Farm and Laughing Raven Farm will bring fresh herbs, vegetable starts and the freshest treats from their farms.

Wander through slowly! Olympic Onion will bring their wonderful onion powder blends, grown on their farm and then harvested, cleaned, chopped and dehydrated into the unique, delicious powder. Dungeness Gold will make preparing food into a gourmet endeavor with their high quality and one of a kind spice blends, sugars and sauces. Pick up a delicious pastry (or two) and coffee from Two Spot Bakery. There is much to see and explore.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday. The market will celebrate with a drawing. Visit the market booth for the chance to win a relic from the market’s history. It is a market sign from years past. Come take a peek and enter the raffle.

This weekend and every second Saturday of the month is Senior Appreciation Day at the market. The first 50 seniors to visit the main market booth that day will receive a $2 coupon to purchase from any of our vendors at the market. This monthly event at the market is made possible by Nutritious Movement Center Northwest.

Helpful parking tips: In addition to the public parking lot across Sequim Avenue, there is parallel parking on Sequim Avenue and Cedar Street (south of of the plaza). We make sure that two parallel designed ADA parking spaces are available on the north side of Cedar Street directly in front of the City Hall building. Please be sure to respect the parking lots of businesses and use those private parking lots only when you are visiting those specific businesses.

A special thanks to Bell & Davis Law and BrokersGroup Real Estate for supporting the Sequim Farmers Market.
