This Saturday is a great day to bring your kids to the Sequim Farmers Market.

Every month you will find a new feature at the Kid’s Day activity booth, where kids receive a $2 coupon they can use to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. It is a unique opportunity for families to learn about healthy choices at the farmers market — our community’s source of fresh, local food.

Coupons will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Mark your calendars for Kid’s Days throughout the summer and fall: July 27, Aug. 31, Sept. 28, and Oct. 26.

Visit the Kid’s Day Activity Booth where there will be activities and information about waste prevention in our community. Preventing and reducing waste is a top priority for the Clallam County Waste Prevention Program. With help from Waste Prevention Specialist Megan Davis, recreate your very own American flag with scrap fabric!

You can also bring your recycling questions and play a quick “rate your recycling knowledge” game and see how well you think you recycle!”

Storytimes, live music

Introduce your child to the sights and sounds of the Sequim Farmers Market and enjoy a special storytime. The North Olympic Library System is hosting the first storytime of the season at the Market this weekend, at 10:30 a.m. Library storytime creates critically important early literacy opportunities for young children and spreads the love of reading beyond the walls of the library.

The Summer Live Music Series continues with Forest Beutel, a boot stompin’ Americana Blues one-man band, performing from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Slinging banjo, guitar, harmonica, kick-drum and a high-hat, Beutel builds a twingy, upbeat atmosphere that engages a crowd and gets folks on their feet. A modern day rambling man, Beutel’s voice blends the high lonesome sounds of Hank Williams with gruff baritone vibrations akin to Johnny Cash.

Food assistance

Did you know that you can use your EBT/SNAP federal food assistance to purchase food at the Sequim Farmers Market? At 11 a.m. on June 29, join SNAP Ambassador Emily Rosado for a bilingual tour (English/Spanish) to learn how the Sequim Farmers Market helps people with low income stretch their food assistance benefits. Programs to be covered include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/EBT, formerly known as food stamps), the Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers for Seniors and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and the Market Match program that provides matching funds for people who choose to use their food assistance at the market. Receive an EXTRA $9 for every $10 EBT spent at the market!

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