The new season begins this Saturday, April 3, 2021 from 10am to 2pm.
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 typically features over 40 vendors.
The Market’s Opening Day will host more than 20 vendors featuring an abundance of locally grown produce, plants, flowers, and wine, as well as beef, pork, chicken and eggs. Artisans will offer macramé, greeting cards, paintings, and all-natural cosmetics, and food processors round out the Market menu with bread, pastries, alternative milks, and limited prepared foods, intended for consumption off-site due to Covid safety precautions. More vendors are planning to attend later in the season as well.
The market is located at Winslow Town Square, 280 Madison Avenue N, Bainbridge Island, WA
Please note that social distancing and masks are required, and the Market requests that shoppers limit attendance to one person per household, leaving pets at home for now, and keeping social interactions to a minimum or taking them outside the perimeter of the market, in order to facilitate physical distancing at this social event.
The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market Association (BIFMA) is a non-profit organization operated by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of vendors and community members. This year the market is proud to announce the addition of their new Farmers Market Manager, Valerie Randall, who has been intimately involved in the Island’s food and agriculture scene since 2009. BIFMA’s mission is to provide a marketplace which connects local farmers, artisan food and craft makers with the community.
If you’re interested in becoming a vendor or performer at the market, you can contact Valerie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market runs Saturdays, 10-2, from April through November.
