Saluting Local Farms

In 1870, 50% of the United States workers were involved in farming.

Today it is 2%.

Today, 2.2 million Americans work on farms, the average farm is 460 acres in size.

2.2 million Americans doing the work to feed over 350 million Americans and countless foreign countries.  The average income for a farmhand in 2009 was just over $9 per hour.

Where would we be without them?

Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market salutes the local farmers of Thurston County.

You are appreciated!

The Heat Is Gone; Won’t You Join Us?

I think I speak for everyone, vendors and customers alike, in saying it is a blessed relief to see the hot temperatures move on. Two straight Market days with temps over ninety was just a bit much for us all.

So the weather forecast calling for temps in the 70’s this coming Wednesday is welcomed news indeed.

We would love to see everyone come out this coming Wednesday and share in the community experience that is Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market.  This is harvest time, and the Market will of course feature the freshest produce and fruits you can find, all grown with loving care, all natural, and all healthy.

We have a covered area where you can have a bite to eat and enjoy the lunchtime music, and we have craftspeople with their wares, fresh honey, the best cheeses in the area, and much, much more.

Wednesday, 10-2, at the corner of Israel and Capitol Way.
