Farmers Market 101: May is flying by and this is the last Sequim Farmers Market of May with more vendors and booths to explore in June. If you are new to Farmers Markets, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

• Bring cash or your checkbook

• Bring reusable bags

• Bring a bottle of water

• Bring a good hat and wear sunscreen

All of these items will help you make the most of the day as you browse the amazing offerings at the Sequim Farmers Market. Be open and ask the vendors questions, as this is a great opportunity to connect with local artisans and growers.

This year if you would like to purchase an item from a vendor that does not accept credit/debit cards, no need to rush to an ATM. At the market booth you can use your credit card to purchase market currency in $20 increments. This currency can be used like cash at the Sequim Farmers Market, and vendors will provide change in cash when needed.

If you forget to bring a reusable bag, we have got you covered. Support the market and buy a $10 Sequim Farmers Market reusable canvas bag. Sales provide funding support for programming, operations, and activities of the market.

This Saturday, May 25 is Kid’s Day at the Sequim Farmers Market! Visit the Kid’s Day Activity Booth to receive a $2 coupon which may be used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables, and edible nursery starts at the Sequim Farmers Market. Coupons are available while supplies last.

Kid’s Days are a community program that provides resources for kids to engage in an active lifestyle and make healthy choices. Kid’s Days occur on the last Saturday of every month throughout the market season, in partnership with WSU Clallam County Extension and sponsored by Nutritious Movement.

For National EMS Week, Clallam County Fire District 3 will be at the Sequim Farmers Market with demonstrations and safety information for our guests on Saturday.

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