2015 was our 10th season!
Thank you friends and neighbors who made this our best, most productive season yet! We look forward to seeing you next spring.
We are exploring the idea of adding a weekend day in addition to the Wednesday market. This would help us connect with our local Tumwater community.
Please take a moment to fill out a very brief survey to explore what this weekend day might look like. We will keep the survey up until October 30th and review your responses at the 2015 Board of Director’s Retreat the following day.
Interested in joining the Board? This is the best time to come aboard, while we look back on the year and plan for the next. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since 2006, the Tumwater Farmers Market has been bringing together producers and consumers in a congenial atmosphere that promotes the economic well-being of local agriculture, the nutritional well-being of consumers and the social health and wealth of local communities.
The Tumwater Farmers Market:
- Creates an open-air focal point for healthful shopping, workplace events, and information-sharing for state, city and library employees and their customers, easily accessible within walking distance of several large state agency offices;
- Increases consumer access to fresh produce direct from local farmers;
- Provides public space for state employees and others to gather and share a sense of community.
The market includes fresh produce and processed food products grown and made in Washington, with preference given to local producers. Consumers will find a colorful array of fruits, vegetables, flowers, plants, baked goods and prepared foods to meet their lunchtime shopping and dining needs and desires.
Other booths include featured artisan, the Kid’s Zone, and the community booth, open to local nonprofits, state agencies, labor and civic organizations on a rotating basis for information sharing and community outreach.
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.
Another way to stay on top of what’s happening at the Market is to “like” us on Facebook!!
