– “Positive Response as Yelm Farmers Market Returns to the Heart of Downtown”
“There has been an overwhelming positive response from residents and city officials alike as the Yelm Farmers Market has finally returned to the Yelm Community Center on 2nd Street. The market first opened in 2012, but spent the last five years operating out of the Nisqually Valley Springs Farm about 2.5 miles out of town. Inclimate weather combined with a lack of parking and accessibility made the location troublesome and deterred more community members from visiting.”
“The Yelm Farmers Market is run by the Bounty for Families (BFF) board, a not-for-profit 501(3)(c) focused on cultivating a healthy community by supporting local families, providing access to nutritious food, and strengthening the local economy,” by Marta Helpenstell, ThurstonTalk.
