The Bellingham Farmers Market is an amazing gathering place for our community and it is led by a committed collaborator, Caprice. The Market’s dedication to serving its customers and meeting the needs of its vendors is unparalleled. Chef in the Market, the Bellingham Chef’s Collaborative and the Farm to School program build vital bridges between food producers, food preparers and the public. The Fresh Bucks program has allowed WIC recipients to purchase fresh, local foods regardless of their income.
We love that the Market’s presence has grown with the addition of the monthly winter markets and the Holiday Pop-Up Market. The bustling Saturday mornings along with these well-attended and appreciated events have garnered national – and local – recognition. In the words of Ciao Thyme’s Jessica Gillis, “Building a strong community means supporting local farmers, artists and citizens while bringing them together in a convivial space. The Bellingham Farmers Market does it all!”
