Thanksgiving Farmers Market this Saturday

Thanksgiving is only a week away! This Saturday, November 17th, 10am to 2pm, stock up for your Holiday cooking at the Port Townsend Farmers Market. We have lots of fresh, locally grown foods perfect for your holiday table: potatoes, carrots, parsnips, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, kale, salad greens, lots of winter squash, pasture-raised meat, fish, honey, wine, cider, fresh-baked pastries, bread, hand pies, arts, crafts, and more. With 16 farms, eight artisan food, and 15 arts and craft vendors at market this Saturday, we have a great selection to choose from.

Need some inspiration? Jefferson Healthcare's Executive Chef, Arran Stark, is hosting his last demo of the season featuring locally grown foods for your Thanksgiving table. As those of you who are familiar with Arran know, he is a methods teacher. Rather than provide you with specific recipes, Arran teaches the strategies needed for cooking delicious meals. Join us starting at 11am for Arran's demo followed by delicious samples.

We only have five more Port Townsend Farmers Markets this season! Our Season Closing and Winter Holiday Farmers Market is on December 15th, 10am to 2pm. While the market season continues, take advantage of weekly opportunity to purchase fresh, delicious, locally grown foods directly from the farms that grow them. 

EBT shoppers, we are still offering $20 in matching when you spend $25 on your EBT card at market (a total of $45 combining matching and your EBT dollars). Visit the market booth for more information.

From Our Vendors  

It's true. This Saturday will be the final market of 2018 for Crust Bakery. We invite you to place your order for Thanksgiving pies at market this Saturday! Or, order some of our famous dough and make your own pie. There are so many delicious things available at market to fill your pie. We can't wait to see you, feed you, and enjoy the chilly and hopefully sunny Saturday with you. See you this Saturday and next year!~ Kelli and Suzen

This is the time of year that I reach out to new and returning sponsors for our upcoming farmers market season. Sponsors help us host three vibrant weekly farmers markets each year, which support 80+ local farms, artisan food and arts businesses as direct-to-consumer market places. Our sponsors also support us in hosting weekly live music, special events, the Power of Produce (POP) Club for kids, as well as in offering food assistance matching programs, which support over 500 households with low-incomes in accessing fresh, nutritious food.  Please contact me if you would like learn more about our sponsorship promotion packages or to join us as a new or returning market sponsor in 2019.
