"We travel all over the country, and this is the best market we attend."

This sentiment, expressed to a vendor last Saturday, is commonly heard at the Sequim Open Aire Market. Visitors to the area can’t believe that Sequim has such a large market with so many talented local artisans.

They find the quality and variety of products available to be without equal. They linger in the Market Square, listening to a local musician and soaking up some of the friendly, small-town experience they come to Sequim to find.

The Open Aire Market is never the same twice. Our many regular vendors work hard to bring new products throughout the season:

_ A new size and shape of "all smells be gone" hand soap from Valley of the Sun.

_ A baby goat making a surprise visit. She soon will provide the milk at the heart of a multitude of body care products available at The Galloping Goat.

_ A new line of sea glass-themed cabinet pulls developed by CR Wearables.

_ Fresh jewelry designs featuring cut and polished stones, just rock-hounded in Utah, at Cindy’s Spare Loot.

A varied selection of fresh local produce and food products also can be found each week at the Open Aire Market, and the slow evolution of items available throughout the season will inspire you to discover the simple beauty of eating locally grown food.

Early season spring veggies held us over until strawberry season, which ended much too soon but was quickly followed by more berries of the "rasp-" and "black-" varieties, which carried us through to this week when ALL of the summer vegetables like tomatoes, beans, cucumbers and squash are available from farm vendors throughout the Market.

The Market produce vendors all participate in the WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program.

Produce isn’t the only kind of food available at the Open Aire Market each week. Tuna Dan brings the freshest, best-priced local fish available on the peninsula.

QuilBay Seafood features live oysters and clams. The Bell Street Bakery offers freshly-baked bread to go as well as sweet treats that might not make it all the way home. Handmade chocolates from an old family recipe are available in beautiful gift boxes from Chocolate Serenade.

The Charlie Ferris Show will be entertaining from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The market is open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Additional information can be found at www.sequimmarket.com.

Mark Ozias is the director of the Sequim Open Aire Market.
