After much work by the Market Manager and the Farmer’s Market Committee, it was decided that this year’s market will be held in the Broadway Middle School parking area along Highway 101/ Roosevelt Dr. near the Broadway St. intersection, adjacent to the Seaside Chamber of Commerce.
“This move will increase market visibility and traffic,” states Grace Smith, Special Events Coordinator for the Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District. “It was a tough decision since it will limit the season to June 22nd through August 31st, due to the school needing to use the area outside of those dates.”
The market times will remain the same as they have in past years with the market opening at 3:00pm and closing at 7:00pm every Wednesday afternoon. Several new vendors have joined the market this year, offering an expanded selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables.
“I’m excited about the new changes and additional vendors,” says Rachael Bailey, Market Manager. “I think it will all work together brilliantly to help us continue to grow this market and better meet the needs of local consumers and our vendors alike.”
