Evergreen Park, 1400 Park Ave, Bremerton WA
Our second vaccine clinic is today! Plus, the League of Women Voters of Kitsap County will be sharing information and will have voter registration paperwork again this week.
In case you missed it last week: In following with the updated Washington state guidelines, our market is “opening back up”. When you visit today, you will no longer see caution tape surrounding the market footprint (yay!), there will no longer just be two entrances (yay!), and you are welcome to bring a chair, eat a snack, and enjoy being around your community (yay! yay! yay!). We’re excited to be getting back to normal. However, we’re still encouraging unvaccinated individuals to continue wearing masks and to physically distance while at the market. And of course, anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask is welcome to do so. Please note: some vendors may not feel comfortable doing business with those who are unmasked and will display a sign stating that a mask is required at their booth.
You may be asking “what about music?” Well, with a rough 2020 season, we did not budget for musicians this year. So, if you know of any musicians who would like to busk, please have them email the market manager at email@example.com
We would also love more hot food vendors! If you know of any, let us know!
Walk-Up Vaccination Clinic
Kitsap Public Health will be with us TODAY administering second doses to those who got the jab at the market last month as well as administering vaccines to those 12 and up! No appointment necessary! Everyone who gets vaccinated gets a free Kitsap Transit pass, a lunch box from Kaiser Permanente, and a very cool BCFM vaccination sticker 🙂
Kid’s Market Club
The first Thursday of June, July, August, and September, we’ll have a Grab and Go Activity for Kids OR Parents to pick up and take home. Kids ages 3-12 complete their activity at home and return to our Kids Club booth, show us it’s been completed, and receive $4 in special Kids Market Club BUCKS on ANY Thursday for the REST of that month. The beginning of each month starts a new Kids Market Bucks Activity. Kids Market Bucks can be used to buy fresh fruits, veggies, and edible plant starts. Kids who complete ALL 4 activities will receive a special reward at the end of the season.
