Frosty and earlier evenings are clear signs that Fall is upon us. So, on
October 6th Tonasket Farmers Market will begin closing at 6pm rather than 7.
October 6th will also be our last outdoor Market in Triangle Park.
For October 13th, 20th, 27th and November 3rd (our last Market of the season) we will move to the indoor comfort of the Community Cultural Center (CCC), at 411 Western Avenue 98855, also from 3 pm to 6pm.
Produce vendors will have late season vegetables for your upcoming holiday meals and your winter larder; Jams, jellies and other canned delicacies will be offered to spice up your dining pleasure; and farmstead cheeses will be right for any occasion!
Area crafters will have beautiful handiwork for holiday gifts. So, please join us, and your neighbors, to welcome the coming season and support our local economy.
We’d also like to make sure people are aware the Market now accepts Food Stamps/SNAP, in addition to WIC.
We began being able to process WA EBT cards this July.
HOW IT WORKS: Shoppers simply swipe their SNAP/EBT cards at our INFORMATION BOOTH and receive WOODEN TOKENS, good only
at our Tonasket
Farmers Market. SNAP Tokens can be accepted for all 'take home to eat' foodstuffs (produce, meat, cheese, canned and baked goods), but no hot/deli/restaurant items (like coffee and sandwiches), live animals, or plant starts. Note: Vendors cannot give change for these Tokens, so spend in whole dollar amounts only.
We also participate in Food For All’s FRESH BUCKS, a matching program which helps SNAP/EBT shoppers stretch their Market dollar by 40%! For every $5 of wooden SNAP Tokens purchased $2 in Fresh Bucks will be given. Fresh Bucks can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables and edible plant starts. Again, no change for Fresh Bucks, so spend in whole dollar amounts only.
Many people are not aware of these programs and our participation, so spread the word! :-)

Board meetings are held the 1st Monday of each month, at 1pm, at the CCC. Our meetings are open to the public, as the board strives to serve both its
vendors and the customers who shop with us.
To fit your topic into the agenda, and do any necessary research, it helps to let us know beforehand. We ask you submit any grievance, complaint,
or suggestion for improvement in writing. The board will discuss it at our very next meeting, and respond within a week after that meeting.
