Abundant Harvest

This week the role of the Bremerton Farmers Market Manager is being played by BFM Secretary, Tiffany Royal, so that your regularly scheduled Manager can have a day off. Unfortunately, she spent so much time getting ready for her day off it doesn’t feel like a day off at all! C’est la vie!

As a result, if you’ve got any Market questions, or want to use your credit, debit, or EBT card in the Market, look for the gal in a martini apron, instead of the chicken apron!
