Today is a big day at the Market! Come on out and celebrate a new school year with us! We’ll have 11 community booths, kids activities, music, and more! Don’t forget to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Backpack Brigade.
The Department of Health “strongly recommends individuals wear masks in crowded outdoor settings, such as outdoor concerts, fairs and farmers markets.” Our vendors will again be required to wear masks, we ask that visitors to the market do as well. Thank you for doing what you can to stop the spread of Covid-19!
Today’s Musician: The Hurdy Gurdy man will be with us one last time this season. Remember to bring cash to reward him for his talents and time.
Vendor Update: Pedro’s Santa Maria Style BBQ will be joining us for the first time this season! If you haven’t made it out to the Port Orchard farmers market to try their delicious food, here’s your chance!
This is the last week to catch Diane’s Dezines at our market so be sure to come out and get some beautiful glass jewelry or home decor for yourself or for a gift! If you can’t make it out today, you can still find her at the Port Orchard farmers market on Saturdays.
