Seriously, now, is there a better place to have a Wednesday lunch than at the Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market?

Live music every Wednesday . . . fresh fruits and veggies . . . BBQ . . . vegan dishes . . . checking out the crafts displays . . . feeling a sense of community . . . you can have it all from 10-2 every Wednesday at the corner of Israel Road and Capitol Way.

Another New Vendor Added

We are proud to announce another new vendor.

Say hello and give a hearty welcome to Fina’s Salsa!

Fina’s Salsa is owned and operated by Josefina Pilon, a resident of Olympia since 1977.  Cooking is Pilon’s passion, and that passion is readily apparent in her authentic, unique Mexican-flavored salsa.

Fina’s Salsa is just one more reason why you should stop by the Market this next Wednesday from 10-2.  We are adding vendors, growing in size, and we would love to have you join us.
