4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Evergreen Rotary Park, 1400 Park Ave, Bremerton WA


Celebrate With Us!

We look forward to seeing you at the market tomorrow where we'll be celebrating our 15th season with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Greg Wheeler, our awesome vendors, live music from the Guilded Lilly Band, a free raffle, and more! Because of the support of this wonderful community, we've been able to continue our mission of operating a community supported farmer’s market that provides viable economic outlets for farmers and producers, access to locally crafted and farm-fresh products, quality food access for low-income families, and education concerning food and sustainable agriculture. We've got a lot in store this season, I hope you join us!


A huge shout-out to our sponsors this year who are helping us get back to our pre-Covid programming: The City of Bremerton and the Parks Department, Bremerton Office Machine Company. The United Way, Molina Healthcare, Fingers Duke, Peninsula Community Health Services, Rotary Club of Bremerton, Leah Persinger, the Dusty Pug/Bremerton Vintage Flea, Harbor Montessori at Tracyton, Holly Ridge, Kitsap Kids Directory, Meals on Wheels, Thrive Yoga Manette, Manette Real Estate, Navy Federal Credit Union, Tiny Mushroom Sign Shop, Rice Fergus Miller, Visit Kitsap Peninsula, and Ahoy Kitsap


Help Support the Market

You can help support the market by purchasing a tote bag, t-shirt, tank top, and/or sweatshirt! This year's fun design was created by local artist Evelyn Husband. After each market day the seagulls swoop in to eat whatever food has been dropped so we thought this design was perfect! We'll have totes, t-shirts and tank tops at the market booth (possibly tomorrow). If you'd like to order ladies T's, or a sweatshirts, you can order them directly from Fingers Duke until May 16th: Preorders open between April 21st–May 16th. (printavo.com)


Our Musician This Week

The Guilded Lilly Band will be helping us kick off another great season! Guilded Lilly is a modern folk rock band with a Blusey twist. Powerful vocals-thought provoking lyrics on originals. Nancy on lead locals, Rob on guitar/bass and KC on percussion.

Thank you to Bremerton Office Machine Company for making this program possible!


Kid's Market Club

Make sure to bring your kids ages 3-12 to the market on May 5th for our first Kids Market Bucks Day sponsored by United Way Kitsap. The topic will be Healthy Soils and Plant a Veggie.
