Farmer’s Market to Remain Open Through Winter
By Cassie Johnson-Villalobos
Olympia Farmer’s Market’s board of directors voted to keep the market open through the 2014 winter season during a meeting on October 21. The market begins its first winter season on Saturday, January 11. Its usual season lasts from the first week of April to December 24.
This year, all vendors are closing down on December 24, but not all are returning in January.
The list of vendors is not yet decided upon, and is largely up to the vendors themselves, according to the market’s general manager, Charlie Haney.
“Hopefully, it’ll be an even mix,” said Haney, commenting on the potential variety of products available to winter customers.
From January 11 through March, the market will be open on Saturdays only. Hours will remain 10am to 3pm.
