Farmers Market at the Cashmere Museum opens Sunday


The Cashmere Community Farmers Market will kick off the 2023 season on Mother's Day, Sunday May 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Located at the Cashmere Museum, 600 Cotlets Way, the opening day will feature 16+ vendors selling flowers, garden starts, spring vegetables, mushrooms, goats’ milk, and artisan products such as pottery, jewelry, skin care and soaps. There is still space at the market for more vendors, especially baked goods, processed farm products such as jams and cheese, coffee, and hand-crafted artisanal goods. Vendor information can be found on the Farmers Market website. 

The Farmers Market will also host live music every Sunday this season, opening with Seth Garrido and the Chumlilies on May 14. On May 28, the Market will host the first Kids Makers Market of the season, a monthly event in the Museum Pavilion where kids can register to sell their arts and crafts. You can visit the Farmers Market website to book a performance slot or register for the Kids Makers Markets. 

The Cashmere Community Farmers Market accepts SNAP EBT and doubles the value of SNAP EBT value by up to $25 per market day through a state funded program called SNAP Market Match. Many farms at the market also accept Senior and WIC FMNP for specific products, via the new QR code. 

The Farmers Market is a program of the nonprofit Cascade Community Markets, and is supported by donations from local residents and businesses.
