Steilacoom Farmers Market
The Steilacoom Farmers Market is just about prepared for its coming season. As you know, we are starting late due to the U.S. Open Golf Tournament being held at Chambers Bay Golf Course. It just was not feasible to have the market before the tournament or during the tournament due to the heavy traffic that will be going down Lafayette Street during the day.|
Our vendor list keeps growing! We know for sure we will have more produce this year. In fact, we have one vendor bringing Organic Tomatoes and Organic Cucumbers. They will be sampling them for people to taste the difference between farm grown organic and commercially grown produce. We have a promise of an egg vendor but I haven't seen their application yet. The eggs are from chickens raised outside in a free range setting. Adam's Mushrooms will be returning this year with a larger selection of items from which to choose.
Our list of food vendors has grown, too. With the concert in the park each Wednesday evening, prepared food vendors are seeing an opportunity to cook their specialties for people going to the concert as well as those attending the market. Returning this year will be Smokin' Zees BBQ with their ribs and sandwiches. Burrito Boys will be here for their seventh year! BC Ice Cream Treats is back as are the NW Kettle Corn people. The Whistle Stop trailer will be parked at the bottom of the hill by the park and serving a wide variety of food including their Strawberry Shortcake.
We invite everyone to come see what we have to offer this year starting Wednesday, June 24th!
Our hours will remain the same, 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Also, the concert series will run in conjunction with all 10 Wednesday Farmers Markets. The concert will start at 6:30 p.m. each night.

The market committee has worked hard on meeting a vendor ratio goal of at least 50% of total vendors being Washington State farm products. There will certainly be other vendors (crafts, processed goods, flowers) as well as Steilacoom based community groups, but the main focus will remain on the farm products.
