The Sequim YMCA is hosting the Activity Booth this month, where they will provide demonstrations and equipment for kids to have fun with physical fitness.

Kids 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.

Fete the vote

On Aug. 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote, was signed into law. This Saturday the Sequim Farmers Market celebrates the 99th anniversary of that historic day. Suffrage is defined as the right to vote in political elections, and woman’s fight for the right to vote, the suffrage movement, in the United States took 80 years (1840-1920).

To celebrate the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, artisan vendor J Wyatt Art, sponsor of the event, will organize a scavenger hunt. Pick up a game card from the farmers market booth or the J Wyatt Art booth; the first five people to complete the scavenger hunt and return the game card to the booth will receive a prize.

We will also have a community self-care booth at the market where massage therapist Susana Jimenez, LMT, with To Live Well Massage, will join us. Come treat yourself.

Music, more

The Summer Live Music Series continues with Mixed Company performing from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Mixed Company is a local husband and wife team and friends who enjoy making music together and know how to get toes tapping! Members include David Herrera on mandolin, Bob Warner on guitar, Jon Faverty on fiddle and Karen Faverty on double bass. They play a mix of old-time favorite bluegrass, Irish tunes, a few Texas two-step favorites and a sprinkling of vintage soft rock/folk twist, as well as some spicy Cajun samplings.

Did you know that you can get extra money to buy food when you use your food assistance at the Sequim Farmers Market? Learn more about using your SNAP/EBT and WIC and Senior FMNP vouchers at the market this weekend!

Catherine McKinney of Clallam Mosaic will host a free tour for anyone in the community interested in learning about how to use food assistance at the Sequim Farmers Market. Meet at the Farmers Market Booth at the corner of Sequim Avenue and Cedar Street at 10 a.m. this Saturday.

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