Here's a the 2014 Bayview Farmers Market Poster appearing on bulletin boards all over South Whidbey. This year's poster is by market vendor Meredith MacLeod of Stubborn Twig Design.
Great New Season opens Saturday!
It's (finally) here — the opening of the 2014 Bayview Farmers Market season. Join us Saturday at our new location...the big grassy field below and to the south of Bayview Hall at Bayview Corner. The grassy area will cushion your feet as you shop and visit with friends each Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm This year the market features more than 50 returning and new vendors with farm products, bakery items, processed foods, hot foods and artisan wares. Wine tasting is new this year and there will be live local music, chef demos, coupon giveways, vendors contests and kids events for your entertainment. Check out The South Whidbey Record, Drew's List and this site every week for information about upcoming markets. See you Saturday....rain or shine—it's going to be a great day!
Market president, Shirlee Read, (left) presents $500 worth of Market Bucks to Damon Arndt organizer for the Hearts and Hammers work party coming up May 3. The donation comes from all the vendors at the Bayview Market after a better than expected market season in 2013. "This is a way to give back to the community and benefit the 2014 market all in one shot", says Read. Homeowners whose properties are improved during one-day the Hearts and Hammers event will receive an envelope containing the bucks to spend at the market on for vegetables, fruits and other food-related items.
Now a Wi-Fi Hotspot!
