Yelm Farmers Market Set to Open for Season on May 27 in New Location
Excerpt from the NVN:
The Yelm Farmers Market is set to return on Saturday, May 27, at a new location in front of the Yelm Police Station on McKenzie Street.
The market, which was previously held at the Yelm Community Center, allows local vendors the opportunity to sell their handcrafted items or homegrown food.
“We’re just hoping for a great year. It’s different for us because we’ve been in the same location for five years,” market organizer Jon Jamieson said. “It’ll be a new change being down the street, but we’re hoping for a good turnout and hoping to be in tune with some of the events we’ll coincide with at the community center, such as the Nisqually Valley Barbecue Rally and Prairie Days. We’re hoping this new location works out.”
Jamieson said the city decided to rent out the Yelm Community Center to other events like weddings or gatherings. Since the Yelm Farmers Market is a nonprofit organization, Jamieson said they couldn’t afford the rent there.
