“Did you know that there is a Farmers Market being started/trialled by Yelm Farm on Bald Hill Road (opposite U-Haul and Jasons Greenhouse just outside city limits)?
The first one is this Saturday from 9am-3pm.
They will trial it fortnightly for July and August. If it is successful they will continue it permanently.”
“The Yelm Food Co-op is proud to announce that we will now be receiving fresh produce on Saturdays and Tuesdays for your shopping pleasure. Some choices include, delicious cherries, peaches, nectarines, sweet corn and super sweet seedless watermelons. All organic of course.”
Also, NatureWise Farm will have a farm stand outside the Yelm Co-op starting every Thursday from 3-6.30pm. NatureWise’s Cornelia O’Leary tells the Yelm Community Blog, “The Co-op have been selling my veggies and the feedback has been so good that they asked me if I would like to do this as it ties in with their aim to work with and help local farmers.”
The Olympian had this interesting story in May titled “New type of Earth-conscious farmer sprouting up in South Sound”.
