The Sequim Farmers Market is celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2020 and we are looking for young artists who are interested in helping us create a logo commemorating this momentous event.

Between now and Nov. 8, we are accepting entries from any student K-12 in Sequim. The artwork must be original and created by the student. Visit the Sequim Farmers Market website (sequimmarket.com) to download an application and learn more.

Kids Day

This Saturday (Oct. 26), the final outdoor market of the season, is Kid’s Day at the Sequim Farmers Market. Visit the Kid’s Day Activity Booth to receive a $2 coupon for kids to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.

There will be a lot of fun activities going on around the market: The Organic Seed Alliance will at the activity booth teaching the kiddos about seed saving, the Master Gardeners will present “Herbie the Seed Puppet” and Sequim Museum & Arts will display a historic tractor at the market for all to enjoy.

From noon-2 p.m., youths are invited to sit and read a book with “reading dog” Teva and her owner Diane, members of Therapy Dog International. Kid’s Days are sponsored by Nutritious Movement Center Northwest.

Holiday obstacle course, more market fun

Sure you carve pumpkins, but have you ever balanced, climbed, jumped, crawled, and carried your way through a pumpkin harvest? All bodies are welcome to come play in Nutritious Movement’s holiday obstacle course.

Join Katy Bowman and special guest star MovNat’s Captain Stefano for fun times and whole-body movement. All ages and levels are welcome to drop in to this free event at the Nutritious Movement studio from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at 202 N. Sequim Ave., across the street from the market.

The Sequim Farmers Markets season ends outdoors after Oct. 26, but the market returns indoors on Nov. 23 and Dec. 21 for two special holiday markets at the Guy Cole Event Center in Carrie Blake Community Park from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Watch the Sequim Farmers Market facebook page (www.facebook.com/SequimFarmersMarket) for more information.

Thanks are in order

Thank you for coming out and enjoying a fantastic 2019 season with us at the Sequim Farmers Market. As Market Manager, I would like to thank a few people who have kept it all running smoothly.

Gratitudes must begin with our market associates Petra Bernsten and Michael Curran for their hard work and reliability. Program coordinator Elli Rose successfully ran our Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Fresh Bucks and the Market Match Programs for the second year.

Board president Gina Witz made it possible for us to achieve nonprofit status this year, for which we will be forever grateful.

Last but not least, our entire volunteer-run board of directors provided sound advice and brainstorm together, working every week to make the Sequim Farmers Market the best it can be. Thank you again!

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

April Hammerand is the Market Manager for the Sequim Farmers Market. Reach her at manager@sequimmarket.com or 360-582-6218. For more information, visit www.sequimmarket.com.
