WEST OLYMPIA FARMERS’ MARKET OPENING MAY 15TH
Neighborhood-based Market to Highlight West Olympia Producers
The West Olympia Farmers’ Market is back again! The Market will be open every Tuesday from 4PM to 7PM, beginning May 15th and running through October 16th. The Market is in a new location in the parking lot of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on Harrison Avenue and Thomas Street! Just two blocks south of our previous location. There will be produce, baked goods, eggs, flowers, veggie starts, native plants, crafts, and more!
The market began as a vision of four West Olympia growers in the summer of 2010. After receiving overwhelmingly positive encouragement from friends, neighbors, and farmers, the group grew in number and quickly began taking steps to form a market.
The purpose of the market is to promote west Olympia producers by creating a neighborhood-scale market where small farmers and producers can sell directly to their community and increase the social and economic vitality of the community. The market also provides a space for community groups to do outreach on topics of public interest, with a preference on horticultural and agricultural topics.
Opening Day is May 15th and the festivities begin at 4PM and will include live music, face painting, tasty samples, and a meet and greet with local farmers and producers. Be there!
