Salmon Creek Weekly Highlights
Here is what you can expect to see at the market this week!
Tuesday is the last day for the WIC FMNP check distribution this season at Salmon Creek’s farmers’ market! And we’re sorry to see Healthy Families from WSU Extension Services on its last day of the season as well.
Busy day Tuesday…..August 14. We’ll see gravenstein apples, plus blueberries, plus honey, from Danielle, the Honey Bee Girl. Blueberries, raspberries, peaches from Munoz Berry Farm. And blueberries from Gifts of the Planet. Produce by the basketsful at this market tomorrow.
Ash Tree Farms offers intriguing and delicious mushrooms. Let Drew tell you their story. Try flavored popcorn from Popcorn Cove and take home a new plant for your garden from Jacki’s Heirlooms or Charter Oak Farms.
Welcome new vendors with the new-and-different! Salmon River Smokehouse delivers smoked salmon from Wakiakum. And J-J Flowers brings birdhouses, and more, from Skamania County.
Lots to try! The produce season in the Northwest is at a full roar. Shop leisurely in the shade of the Legacy awning and enjoy it all, to the sounds of Daniel Cecil, who joins us with live music at 11:30 on the patio.
Samba’s Baskets will be bringing and making his baskets, Tuesday, August 28. Two weeks from tomorrow.
The vendors appreciatively serve their locally-produced, locally-crafted and locally-grown products to our friends at Legacy, Vancouver Clinic, the medical complexes surrounding the hospital. Legacy and the Salmon Creek Farmers’ Market, of course, welcome the public.
