April 28, 2:30-5pm
Annual Pre-Season Plant Frenzy

We're Getting ready for a new season

Tonasket Farmers Market will again host a pre-season Plant Frenzy Garden Party on Saturday, April 28 from 2:30-5pm in Triangle Park, where Western Avenue meets Highway 97, at the north end of Tonasket, 98855.

All community members (not just vendors) are welcome to set up tables --for free-- to buy /sell /trade their seeds, seedlings, plants and any other gardening-related items!

They say, "Show faith in the future--plant a garden," and this annual event is a great way to come together after a long winter while we wait for the Farmers Market to open.

Opening Day Comes Early

This year's dates were decided at the annual Spring Vendor-Member Meeting on April 12th: OPENING DAY - Thursday May 10; CLOSING Day - November 15.

As always, you'll find us in Triangle Park until October 25th when we move indoors at the CCC until closing day (the last Thursday before Thanksgiving).

A good-sized crowd came out for the Member Meeting; mostly returning vendors from 2017, some past vendors, and a new produce vendor or 2 , so it looks like more produce will be happening this year--yum!

...new board member Jessica Hendrix said she's committed to having kid activities *every* Thursday

... Sarah Beyler of the The Dinner Table Foundation's Gleaning Project was there to speak with both Market vendors and home gardeners about donating extra produce on Thursdays for distribution to food banks in north Okanogan County. (We'll be posting more on this soon)

... We will again be participating in WIC, Food Stamp, and Fresh Bucks programs.

Shoppers, stay tuned to this page, follow us on Facebook, or sign up for email to get Market news. :-)


WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!

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.
