Spring is here, and spring means farmers markets. It’s hard to beat the farmers markets you’ll find on the Olympic Peninsula.
Last year, the Port Townsend Farmers Market was recognized as the best large Farmers Market in the state. Colorful produce lines the stalls, the smell of freshly-baked breads permeates the air, and music sets the mood. People shop, congregate, eat and dance. Is there a better place to be between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on a Saturday? We think not.
In a few weeks, the smaller but no less note-worthy Chimacum Corner Farmers Market opens. It starts May 20 and runs Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the fall. If you happen to find yourself craving fresh produce on a Sunday in Chimacum prior to that, stop by the Chimacum Corner Farmstand. You can’t miss it; it’s the cheerful yellow store in the heart of Chimacum.
Spend a weekend on the Olympic Peninsula this spring. Visit Olympic Peninsula Wineries* and taste locally made, Washington State wine. Visit the Port Townsend Farmers Market and stock up on locally grown fresh produce and other treats. Discover the bounty of the Pacific Northwest.
