Farmers Market Week set Aug. 3-9

Aug 2nd, 2014 | Category: News

WA – Governor Jay Inslee declared Aug. 3-9 as “Washington Farmers Market Week.” Farmers markets offer an estimated 1,200 Washington farmers to sell products directly to consumers in rural and urban areas of the state. “Farmers markets across the state reported nearly $42 million in sales in 2013, an increase of more than four percent from the year before,” WSDA Director Bud Hover said. There are more than 150 farmers markets in 32 of Washington’s 39 counties, according to the state Farmers Market Association, and those figures do not include sales from markets that are not members.
