Volunteering for the Market
I need your help! What would you like the Market to be in 2013? Is there a project you'd enjoy working on? Please call or write Alan at 697-6817;
Please come shop and socialize in our community market. The goal is supporting local economy goods and producers in food and crafts. With seven miles distance to any full service grocery stores, this is a walkable way to pick up great food, flowers, handmade clothing, gifts, and art.
Here below on the homepage are some of our 2012 vendors, and the bottom part of this website's Vendors page is a list of our 2011 vendors. Wyckels Farm, Made In Manette's soaps and sewing, Terrapin Farm, Tom's Greener Gardens Nursery, artisans working in Northwest Coast Indian traditions, including the Puget Sound Salish style, and much more, keep our growing market a great start in revisualizing how a market economy can be a personal, ethical, and sustainable part of our Suquamish human and natural environment.
The Market’s Mission Statement
To build community pride and identity through a regular event that brings residents together in a context acceptable for social interaction.
To support cultural perpetuation and experiential learning.
