Bellingham Farmer’s Market Expands Kids Vending Days Activities

Thanks to new sponsors Common Threads Farm and Bookworm Burrow, the popular “Kids Vending Days” on the last Saturday of the month (April-October) at the Bellingham Farmers Market will include additional appealing activities for children, such as story time, cooking with kids, craft projects, and more.

“Our Kids Vending Days are always a draw for children and their parents, with anywhere from 10 to 20 young entrepreneurs offering items they have made or grown, ranging from duct tape wallets and toys for pets to original cards, jewelry, and baked goods,” noted Caprice Teske, Market Director.

“It’s great to have these two local organizations help us expand our offerings for children and their parents on our Kids Vending Days,” she added. “Common Threads Farm is dedicated to connecting kids to food, community, and environment through seed-to-table education. Bookworm Burrow is a local children’s bookstore that not only encourages children to read, but also focuses on the environmental impact of book publishing and making green choices.”

April 30 is the first Kids Vending Day for the Bellingham Farmers Market 2011 season. The others will take place on May 28, June 25, July 30, August 27, September 24, and October 29.

The Bellingham Farmers Market is open 10 am to 3 pm Saturdays, Apr. 2 – Dec. 17, in Depot Market Square, located at Railroad & Chestnut Streets in downtown Bellingham.  For more information visit, or call 360-647-2060.
