Bellingham Farmers Market opens April 4

Apr 3rd, 2015 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – The Bellingham Farmers Market opens for the 23rd season on Saturday, April 4. Mayor Kelli Linville will toss the traditional cabbage to open the market at 10 a.m., followed by the ringing of the Depot Market Square bell. The market will be held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Dec. 19. New farms include McIntyre Farms, Twin Cedars Farm, and The Crows Farm, as well as new textile artists and crafters. New food vendors include Electric Beet Company, Galley Fare, and Superior Soups, and Drayton Oysters. “With continued support from the Sustainable Whatcom Fund of the Whatcom Community Foundation, we look forward to continuing — and ideally expanding— our Fresh Bucks program, which matches up to $10 in EBT (food stamp) benefits for the purchase of fresh, locally produced food,” Market Director Caprice Teske said.  In addition, Demo Days, co-sponsored by Sustainable Connections, takes place the second Saturday of each month and shows simple ways to prepare seasonal products and take questions from shoppers.
