What’s New at the Market: The Dog Days of summer

Sequim Farmers Market

9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, July 27

Sequim Civic Center Plaza

www.sequimmarket.com

This Saturday is a great day to bring your children and your canine companions to the Sequim Farmers Market.

The last Saturday of the month children 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: August 31, September 28, and October 26.

Dog Days

“Dog Days of Summer” are coming to Sequim Farmers Market this weekend. We love our doggy guests and invite you to come and celebrate them with us. Our sponsors Peninsula Taproom, Best Friend Nutrition, and WAG have all been waiting to share this doggone great day with you and your furry friends.

Visit vendor Canine Connected with your pup. Local artisan, Vicki Swann creates hand sewn dog harnesses, buckle collars, martingale collars, leashes, as well as non-traditional leash options, such as hands-free hip leashes, single adjustable length leashes, and no tangle two-dog leashes. She makes three styles of walking harnesses, and will measure your dog for a custom fit. Canine Connected leashes are the result of years of training and behavior work with service dogs, search dogs, and rescue dog groups. She listens to her customers and the dog community to incorporate designs for different hardware, less bulk, and loomed bungee options for all her leash styles. Swann’s collars are sewn with a variety of ribbons — summertime styles, holiday, and sports themes. Custom orders are always welcome.

So stop by for some free samples at Best Friend Nutrition, visit with the volunteers at WAG, and don’t forget to swing by Peninsula Taproom, 210 W. Washington St., for a refreshing beverage and great company when your day at the market is over. We guarantee tails will be wagging.

The Summer Live Music Series continues with Ashley Kramer, performing acoustic guitar from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 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.
