Bainbridge Island Ferry Farm Stand To Open

Starting tomorrow, Bainbridge Island ferry commuters will have a convenient spot Wednesdays to pick up fresh, local produce, courtesy of Sound Food. It’s set up as a speedy grab-and-go, $5 bag of fresh goodies that Sound Food volunteers put together and hand off (after payment, of course) to people getting off the 3:45 p.m., 4:40 and 5:30 ferries from Seattle.

Reporter Tristan Baurick checked out the stand and interviewed customers during its debut last year, if you’re curious about what they had to say. Over the 12 weeks the ferry stand was open, they sold about $11,000 worth of fresh produce, all of which went to the local farmers, Sound Food said.
