Supporting Local Farmers

The title says it all: supporting local farmers!

The Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market is determined to support our local farmers, and by doing so we are promoting sustainable living and community.  That is our goal and we will continue to work towards that goal.

In today’s world, we believe a strong, connected, interactive community is vital.  We also believe that knowing where your food comes from, supporting those who grow locally and naturally, all of these things help to form a community that gains strength from each of its individual parts.

We believe that the Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market is crucial for the City of Tumwater, and we hope you believe that as well and will support our local farmers by visiting us on Wednesdays from 10-2.

Great Day at the Market Yesterday

A huuuuuge thank you to our vendors and our customers for a great day at the market yesterday.  The weather was perfect, the music relaxing and high-quality, and it all added up to a great day of sales.

Now we want to do better.  There are a lot of people in Tumwater we aren’t seeing, and we are counting on all of you to spread the word.  Great things are happening at the Tumwater Town Center Farmers Market, and, to borrow from The Carpenters, we’ve only just begun!

Music this week by Wishing Willow Farm’s own daughter, Eva!  Eva is a long-time improviser who lets her heart take her fingers and voice to new places celebrating the human spirit.

Big Things Happening at the Market

We had another great Market this week.  Were you there? We sure hope you were and if not, we sure hope to see you next Wednesday, 10-2, the corner of Israel and Capitol.

Our thanks to Andrew Tuller for the great live music on Wednesday.  Next week we have “Eva” playing guitar, digital piano, and singing some of her Indie selections.   Eva describers herself as a long-time improviser.  She says her fingers follow where she goes in her mind, and what she feels in her heart, singing the song of the human spirit.  We can’t wait to hear what she brings to the Market.

We want to let you know about a couple events scheduled for later in the summer.  Senior Day will be July 19th this summer, and Kids Day will be July 12th. As we schedule more special events we will let you know right here.

Next Wednesday?  See you at the Market!  We have several new vendors and we are so excited about the growth and vibes of the Market this year.
