Everyone enjoys the hustle and bustle of a good farmer's market. The people, the vendors, the ready to eat food on site are just a few of the things that make the Poulsbo Farmers Market so special. The food is fresh, local, and sustainably grown and "the Poulsbo Farmers Market is without a doubt home to some of the best food in Kitsap County."
Monday mornings offer a wonderful array of fresh and vegetables during the summer thanks, in part, to the efforts made by two Fishline volunteers, Tricia and James Beene. They visit the Market twice on Saturdays, at the start to set up a Fishline donation table and at the end, to pick up the donated produce from each participating vendor. They return to the food bank to package and label all donations, readying them for the Monday morning client visits. They do this hard work each Saturday because of their personal belief that all should have access to farm-fresh, organic produce even if they can't always afford it.
Thank you to Poulsbo Farmer's Market for your commitment to the North Kitsap community and to Fishline. A special thanks to Brian Simmons, the Market Manager, Kat Cummings, the Market Assistant, Board President Paula Strid, and all the board members. We appreciate all that you do!
