The Port Townsend Wednesday Farmers Market is open today, July 4th, 2-6pm at the Jefferson Transit Haines Place Park and Ride. What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with a fresh meal featuring food from the small, independent farms that participate in our weekly PT Wednesday Farmers Market. Actually, we are very interdependent! When you buy locally you support the small businesses that help our economy thrive with more local jobs and your money circulating longer in our community.
Today we will have fresh veggies, berries, peas, cucumbers, zucchini and summer squash, mushrooms, artisan cheese, smoked and fresh salmon, flowers, fruit wine and more from Midori, Finnriver, Onature, Serendipity, and Willow Wind Farms as well as Duckabush Mushrooms, Chimacum Valley Dairy and Hurricane Hills Winery.
New Vendor at the Saturday Market
Lacey Carnahan, Carnahan Woodworks, joins us this weekend as a new vendor at the Port Townsend Saturday Farmers Market. Lacey has been exploring wood as a medium for about ten years. She received a degree in sculpture from the University of Washington. Shortly afterwards she completed a cabinetmaking program through Seattle Central College. Lacey started Carnahan Woodworks in 2010 as an independent contractor doing small commission cabinets and furniture. After relocating to the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, she has become more interested in hand tools and harvesting her own lumber. Lacey runs Carnahan Woodworks out of her home shop off Center Road in Chimacum. Lacey focuses on small, beautiful and useful hand-crafted objects made almost exclusively from wood she harvests within about a 50 mile radius. Lacey is currently making small hand-carved stools and spoons and fine wooden lamps out of local maple, alder, elm, walnut, cherry, and apple wood. The stools and spoons are made entirely with traditional hand tools. Lacey is also the wood shop teacher at Chimacum High. She will join us for the months of July and August while on summer vacation from school. Meet Lacey this Saturday and check out her beautiful work.
Today at the Port Townsend Wednesday Farmers Market the Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) is leading a match the seed game. Kids, come be a seed explorer and match seed to the veggies they grow. OSA will also have germination baggies for you to take home to watch bean seeds sprout in your window.
On Sunday at the Chimacum Farmers Market the 4-H CedarTree Performers Club is hosting a youth-led gardening and cooking demo. Come to market to learn more and get active with POP Club!
