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.

TIP FOR THE SEASON: DON’T SEE WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR?  ASK US (AT THE INFORMATION BOOTH)

FACT: Did you know that the average veggie takes 7 DAYS and travels 1,500 miles to your store????  THINK what the difference in taste, nutrient density, impact on the environment is when you purchase that veggie freshly harvested from your local farm 10 miles away. THINK that that veggie only took four hours to that farmers’ market.

FACT: Did you know that farmers markets are one reason sales of local and regional foods grew to $11 billion?  And that was in 2011….imagine what it is now!  (USDA, 2011)

FACT: Did you know that 98% of the food we eat in Clark County is shipped in from other areas?  Should a catastrophe take place, we would be running out of food as a region in 3 days. (WSU Extension, 2017)

We welcome a return in 2018 of our partner without whom this market couldn’t be sustained: Thanks to: Our friends at Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital.
