PORT ORCHARD — The Port Orchard Public Market is kicking off the new season with its “Spring Into The Market” event Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26 at its downtown Bay Street location.

The N9NE and Co., a store inside the market that features clothing, jewelry, home decor and goods crafted by local vendors, will offer “Spring ‘17 Fresh Picked,” a free fashion show featuring the Fathoms O’ Fun royalty court. The first 30 attendees will receive a goodies bag.

Immediately after the fashion show — at 2 p.m. — the public market will stage a pasta-making demonstration by chocolatier and dessert treat-maker Carter and Co.

On Sunday, kids and families can take part in demonstrations featuring seed planting for youngsters, rock painting, cookie decorating and seed bomb making. Mugs and Masks’ face-painting will be at the market from noon until 3 p.m. A small fee will be charged.

Later in the evening, a sign painting class at Sue’s Embroidery and Sewing Shop will take place. Advance reservations will be required; contact sueslavenderandmore@yahoo.com.
