– “Farmers Markets are a growth industry in South Sound”
“In Thurston County, a number of market anniversaries are being celebrated. The grand dame of farmers markets in the South Sound, the Olympia Farmers Market, turns 40 years old. Tumwater’s is 10, and even West Olympia is marking five years.
Olympia’s markets might be having an impact on its food culture. Residents of the capitol city were the most likely to report having easy access to affordable fruits and vegetables in 2012-2013 among 189 U.S. metro areas, according to Gallup-Healthways.”
