Poulsbo Farmer’s Market Starts Saturday, April 5…with New Hours!

Screen shot 2014-04-03 at 12.07.56 PMI don’t know about you, but I LOVE farmer’s markets! Call me weird, but being able to meet the people who grow and make the things I’m buying gives me a huge thrill.

I don’t like to buy new things unless I know the story behind them – who made them, what materials went into them, where did those materials come from (are they organic?), how were the people treated in the process…I have a lot of questions about things I buy new. Farmer’s markets let me ask them directly. I usually like the answers I get!

:)

I often lead kayak tours and classes on Saturdays and so I missed many of the Poulsbo Farmer’s Markets over the last few years…but this year I’m leading less and gardening more, and they’re adding an hour so I think I’ll actually be able to make it!

The first day of the 2014 Poulsbo Farmer’s Market will be this Saturday, April 5 and their new hours are 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

The market will run every Saturday through December 20 - isn’t that an amazingly long time to get fresh fruit and veggies and handmade goodies?! Kudos to the vendors, sponsors, volunteers and everyone who makes this happen. I’m so grateful I think I’ll hug some of you when I see you…

They’re still open for more vendors and volunteers, so if you want to help out, you have things you’d like to sell, or you have an organization /cause you’d like to share with people, click here for more details.

They also have a Facebook page, and Twitter and Pinterest accounts, so if you want up-to-date info about what will be at the market and other news, check them out!

If you aren’t able to make it to the Poulsbo Farmer’s Market opening on April 5, there are plenty of other opportunities. PugetSoundFresh.org has a list of all the Farmer’s Markets in the Puget Sound region – what a bountiful, wonderful area we live in, eh?

What are your favorite farmer’s markets? What items do you like to get at these markets?

  1. This is such great news, thank you for the info. Is there any chance you know when the other farmer’s markets in Kitsap?? I heard a rumor about a Wed night one in Suquamish? Do you know anything about that? If that was true I would be so excited. Thanks
