In addition to weekly musical entertainment from a variety of bands and solo artists, the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market features regular events, such as cooking demos, book readings for all ages, craft fairs, cider pressing and kids’ activities.
The number and frequency of events has increased with each year the market has been in operation. In 2017, special events are scheduled almost weekly – including our popular KERNEL kids’ activities. Other events are a hands-on composting workshop, a home canning and pickling demo, a vermiculture tutorial, book readings and more.
Many businesses and nonprofits take advantage of the casual, friendly atmosphere to set up an outreach table and raise awareness about their services. In the past the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market has hosted booths by the Main Market Co-op, doctors’ offices, the Lands Council, BECU, SafeLink Wireless, neighborhood schools and many others.
If you’d like to partner with the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market to schedule an activity, conduct a workshop or set up an outreach table, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always receptive to new suggestions and opportunities!
