Visit the Kid’s Day Activity Booth this Saturday to receive a $2 coupon for kids to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Sequim Farmers Market.

The Clallam County 4-H program is hosting the Activity Booth this month. 4-H empowers youths aged 5-18 to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adult volunteers.

The new 4-H year starts on Oct. 1, so now is a fantastic time to come out and learn about what 4-H workshops are available locally.

Kid’s Days are the last Saturday of every month throughout market season, made possible with support from WSU Clallam County Extension and Nutritious Movement Center Northwest.

Powerful potatoes

This time of year, it is all about potatoes at the Sequim Farmers Market. Potatoes are a well known starchy side dish and they are also rich in potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.

However you wish to fix your potatoes — roasted, mashed, twice-baked, or au gratin — here are the farmers at the market who offer them: Joy Farm (certified organic) grows red and yellow potatoes and River Run Farm (certified organic) grows fingerling, gold, purple and red.

The buttery, flaky texture of these fresh, locally-grown, organic potatoes is the cornerstone of any dinner.

Holiday happenings

The market season on the plaza ends on October 26, but we will be back and indoors for two holiday markets. On Nov. 23 and Dec. 21 the Sequim Farmers Market will hold special holiday markets at the Guy Cole Event Center, an indoor venue at Carrie Blake Community Park.

The market will be open 9 a.m.-3 p.m., with some great activities for those of you doing your holiday shopping with kids in tow. Watch the Sequim Farmers Market Facebook page for more information.

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