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.
