Farmers market returns to Poulsbo on Saturday

Farmers market reopens in Poulsbo, followed by a volunteer cleanup of Liberty Bay

Looking for something to fill your Saturday morning in Poulsbo? Then maybe you should think about visiting the first farmers market of the year and then following that up with a little worthwhile community service.

The Poulsbo Farmers Market will be making its triumphant return on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gateway Fellowship. Even Poulsbo’s mayor, Becky Erickson, said she has been patiently awaiting the market’s return.

“This is a great thing that we have going on in Poulsbo,” Erickson said during Wednesday’s city council meeting. “The market is a wonderful place, I really recommend folks come on by and see what’s going on at the market.”

“The spring months are where you get a level of excitement because things are starting to grow and you’re getting the fresh produce, it’s very cool,” she added.

Following a visit to the farmers market, folks are welcome to go get their hands dirty at Fish Park, where At 10 a.m. volunteers will gather in an effort to help clean up trash that has been accumulating on the shores of Liberty Bay.

Bags, gloves and other materials to help volunteers pick up the bay will be distributed at Fish Park before the cleanup begins.

“They’ve been doing this by themselves,” Erickson said of the volunteers who have been working to clean up the bay. “They’re really angry, frankly, because they live down there and they’re tired of seeing garbage washing in on the bay. And God bless them for it.”
