The Downtown Yakima Farmers Market Welcomes Moms on Sunday
This is the weekend the Yakima Valley starts to shine in downtown Yakima. The Downtown Yakima Farmers Market opens on Sunday, Mothers Day with a full slate of handcrafted items, great food and entertainment.
The items available at the market will grow with time
Later this spring and summer the market will begin to fill with the fruits and vegetables that are hallmarks of the Yakima Valley. The Downtown Yakima Farmers Market on 3rd Street in front of the Capital Theatre will be open from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. A press release from the Downtown Association of Yakima says "the 2022 season promises to be a strong one as Market Manager, Yvette Lippert, has added many fun events and exciting elements to the market, now, that COVID restrictions have been dropped - that, in addition to the featured fresh produce and value-added products that make up the heart of the Downtown Yakima Farmers Market.
Lots of fun planned for Sunday and every Sunday through the spring and summer
Market officials say more events will be added during the season but the schedule already includes Big Ern Productions photo booth for family & friends’ fun photos on Opening Day, Celebration of National Farmers Market Week on August 7, and National Electric Drive on October 2. Also market officials say every final Sunday of the month will be Kid’s Day at that market with lots of activities for the kids.
Great food and handcrafted items will be coupled with entertainment
While you're shopping you'll always be able to enjoy some entertainment that's why local performers will be featured every week at the market.
The press release says "Market Manager, Yvette Lippert, has done a masterful job in bringing an exciting mix of produce, flowers, crafters, food producers, hot food vendors, and ag-related producers to the market, once again this year, along with many value-added vendors who fully create and handcraft their products. All the fun starts this Sunday, May 8!"
