A little history about our wonderful farmer’s market:
In 1993 a handful of local farmers and artists got together on what is now Winslow Green for the first Bainbridge Island Saturday market. Although the market was modest in the beginning, it has grown in offerings and popularity, and currently features over 40 vendors, including live music and other periodic events**. The market is now held at Town Square in City Hall Park, just a short walk from the ferry terminal.
The market association provides and outlet for all Bainbridge Island farmers to sell their produce and is one of the few markets in the state where vendors do not pay a percentage of their profits, instead, vendors are only charged a modest booth fee which assists in offsetting marketing and advertising costs.
Although vendors will be limited this year, the market will still have an abundance of locally grown produce, plants, flowers, eggs, honey and wine, as well as artisan crafts, including wearables and jewelry, art glass, woodcraft, metal craft and garden art, paintings, pastries, pottery, and hot food items, click here for a full list of vendors.
