We would like to invite our current and past Sprouts Club members to participate in our Opening Ceremony at 7:55 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, 2019. We have an "Open" flag that Mayor Sandy Lucy will post at the East Entrance (parking lot side) of the market, and would like the Sprouts Kids to walk the flag through the market from the Chamber, sort of Olympic-torch style, before handing it to Sandy to post.
The Sprouts (and their families) have become such a big part of our market, that we wanted to include them in the kick-off for the 2019 Season. If your child is able to participate, please e-mail Amanda. We hope to see you there!
**Club Activities will begin on May 4, when a little more produce will be available at the market. You can register online in advance if you would like. Online registration closes May 1.
I did get a message that John will have spinach and lettuce on Saturday, so if you still have tokens from last year, you can start spending them!
The Washington Farmers’ Market will officially open its 2019 season on Saturday, April 6. A wide variety of home baked goods, meats, crafts, and bedding plants will be available for sale. The market will be open every Saturday through October 26. Hours are 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Market customers are encouraged to stay up-to-date with Farmers’ Market news by following the market Facebook page at www.facebook.com/washmomarket.
The market offers something for everyone, with more than 40 vendors selling local plants and produce, meat, eggs, jams & jellies, and baked goods. Crafters selling their handmade items have also found a home at the market, offering charming and unique items. The beautifully renovated historic building with pavilion guarantees customers will be covered, rain or shine at 317 West Main Street in Downtown Washington, Missouri. Applications for new vendors are available at HERE or can be requested from email@example.com or from the Chamber of Commerce Office (636-239-2715).

Why did you start crafting?
I started as a child, so it's too long ago to remember why! I continue now because I have time, enjoy making things, and I like to keep busy.
