The Bellingham Farmers Market is pleased to announce new hours for the Wednesday Farmers Market at the Fairhaven Village Green, which opens for its 19th season on June 6, 2018.
To create a win-win for both employees working in the area and residents returning to the area after their work day, the Market is shifting its hours to 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Wednesday, from June through August (the Market will not be open on July 4th).
Their popular Fresh Local Music series will continue with live music scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each week.
- The Moving Hats, a folk trio featuring a mandolin, guitar and accordion, will kick off the season. The musical line-up includes several locally loved performers including Amber Darland, Lindsay Street, and The Elopements, to name a few.
“Each year, we count the days to the return of the Bellingham Farmers Market to the Fairhaven Village Green,” says Village Books co-owner Paul Hanson. “It’s pretty incredible to walk out Village Books back door and into the vibrancy of the Wednesday Market where the community gathers to listen to music, to buy mid-week meal ingredients from local farmers, or to pick up one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted products. It’s a great amenity for the people who live and work in Fairhaven, but we hope everyone — no matter where they live in Whatcom County — will experience this intimate, welcoming Market this summer”
There are eleven farms participating in this year’s Wednesday market, providing a wide variety of vegetables, fruit, meat, honey and plants.
New this year, Wild Acre Farms will be selling their own farm-fresh chicken in sandwiches as well as rotisserie-style for convenient take-home preparation. Other ready-to-eat options include slices of bread, pastries, Indian food and frozen treats.
The Market also features crafters providing local, hand-crafted jewelry, all-natural bath and beauty products, henna tattoos and more.
“We feel fortunate to have the support of the Fairhaven community in our endeavor to provide an additional opportunity for customers to have access to fresh, local food,” said Market Director, Caprice Teske. “The beauty of this Market is we can take advantage of the existing Village Green to create a vibrant and comfortable gathering place for our customers.”
