Evergreen Park, 1400 Park Ave, Bremerton WA
It’s National Farmers Market Week! Come on down to the park today and support your local farmers!
SNAP customers, stop by the Market Booth for a fun giveaway!
We have a new vendor today: My name is Diane and I love caramel! My business is called Mythical Caramels because my candy is the stuff of legends. We make classic flavors like vanilla and salted caramel, as well as flavors like Sriracha, mocha, and cherry lemonade, just to name a few. I have bags of soft chewy caramels (which are dental-work friendly!) and jars of caramels sauces, also in various flavors. I am looking forward to getting to know the Bremerton Market and community!
Today’s musician: “Someone” is a solo artist that started writing & preforming music in 2012 from Milwaukee WI. Influenced by many 60s bands and pop punk bands, “Someone” has 3 original albums & plays covers spanning from the 1950’s through present day. Most recently in June of 2021 the lone member of “Someone” (Ryan Sellers) relocated from WI to Puyallup, WA.
Ryan will be playing for tips so be sure to bring cash to reward him for his talents and his time!
Community Booth: Bremerton’s Cub Scout Pack 4181 is for boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade. Cub Scouts helps children develop positive values and moral character while experiencing the great outdoors. Your kid can do what they love with Cub Scouts: hike, bike, play games, STEM projects, and more. Stop by their booth to learn more!
