It’s our last hurrah!

Can you believe it? A whole season gone, already? How quickly time flies! This is a bittersweet farewell for me, as I will not be returning to manage the Market next season… as much as I have enjoyed working for the vendors and assisting all the customers, I need to be able to sleep more and focus on my life and projects on the Key Peninsula. Therefore, the search is on for a new Market Manager for next season. If you know anyone who is interested, please have him or her email a resume to the Bremerton Farmers Market email (bremertonfarmersmarket@gmail.com).

For those of you who have taken advantage of our debit/credit and EBT token program this season, thank you for your support! We would LOVE for those of you with wooden tokens leftover to go ahead and redeem them at our final market this week. According to my records, there are $130 in debit/credit tokens and $21 in EBT tokens to spend. Thank you!!
