Once again farmers markets across the country will join together to celebrate the benefits and opportunities that markets bring to farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, customers and communities during Farmers Market Week, August 7 – 13, 2016.
Farmers Market Week is just around the corner, and we are ready to celebrate at our market on August 10! To make things even more official, we have received a Farmers Market Week 2016_Proclamaion from Gov. Jay Inslee.
Our featured activity is our annual Veggie Critter Contest with prizes for both kids and adult entries.This is your chance to play with your food – literally! So start shopping for those odd shaped veggies that just shout out ‘make me into an elephant!’ Past entries have included owls, poodles, Orca whales and seascapes, “the Beetles” made from beets to look like the fad four, an egg carton full of chicks, and more.
Other recipe cards include Corn Soup and Peach Coffee Cake.
All three cards are sturdy and colorful and have information on the back about selecting and storing the corn, peaches and blueberries. We still have a few recipe cards from last year. Stop by the manager’s booth and pick some up.
We send out a weekly eNews through Mail Chimp a day or two before each market with highlights for the week. Subscribe using our signup form or send an email to the manager to start receiving it. Our list is not shared with anyone – Opt off the list at any time.
