Every Saturday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., June 15 through Aug. 14, Sequim Farmers Market will host live bands as part of the Summer Live Music Series. The Old Sidekicks start the 2019 series, and dancing and fancy footwork is encouraged.

A bluegrass and country band, The Old Sidekicks are known for their three- and four-part vocal harmonies and just the right blend of talent and foolishness. Members are Bill Camuso (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals); Jack Reagan (guitar, vocals, bass); Steve Sahnow (harmonica); Vern Sprague (banjo, dobro, vocals); Don Betts (bass, guitar, vocals); Dawn Martin (keyboard, vocals), and Steve Anderson (guitar, vocals).

The group met through the Old Time Fiddlers Association and combined their styles and musical influences to create a unique viewing and listening experience. All the members are long-time Sequim residents and say they fully enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Olympic Peninsula.

Stage at the market

Come early this weekend and also see a performance. From 9:30-10:30 a.m., Olympic Theatre Arts’ Children’s Theater presents a collection of monologues. Bonne Smith, head of the children’s theater program, said “From the play ‘Phantom Tollbooth,’ the ministers will welcome attendees to the Sequim Farmers Market.”

OTA will also have a table at the market where you can find out about the new season, children’s productions and more. The Olympic Theatre Arts welcomes children from the community to join in the fun in their OTA summer acting workshops.

For fathers

Sunday, June 16, is Father’s Day and this weekend is your last chance to find a locally-crafted, unique gift for Dad. The Sequim Farmers Market community of vendors offer one of a kind gifts that are hard to beat. Here are some great gift ideas fathers will love: etched glass mugs and glassware by Garry Flynn, hand-crafted writing instruments by DJs Pens, unique woodworking from Lady and the Carpenter or Northwest Beach Works, tumbled rocks and hand-crafted wood from Don’s Rocks and Wood, hand-made hats by Fresh Hats, and pottery from Madrona Ridge or Art of Pottery. If your Dad loves to grill, head straight to The Calf-inated Cow and pick up a delicious steak.

Go green

Last but not least, River Run Farm will start to have head lettuce at the market every weekend from now until October. Come down and pick up some crisp, delicious and locally-grown lettuce. This weekend they will have red butter, green butter and red oakleaf lettuce.

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