Market Tokens...More Precious Than Gold?

Do you have buried treasure at your house? Market Tokens may look like wooden nickels...but they are a form of market money that never expires! Make sure your tokens are for the Bremerton Farmers Market because we don't accept tokens from other area markets. So, go dig in your junk drawers...who knows what you'll find?


 




Music At The Market

This week's Music at the Market is Stephanie! Stephanie’s passion for sharing her music and connecting with her audience is palpable. Playing guitar or ukulele and singing powerful and heartfelt vocals, she performs covers and her original music.

A huge thank you to the Bremerton Office Machine Company for sponsoring this program. See you at the market!


 



Ukulele Workshop

This week, the market will be introducing a new monthly activity. At 5:30pm, Bremerton's own Kitsap Ukulele Peace Revival will be offering a free Introduction To Ukulele Workshop. This workshop will be hosted by local musician teachers, Aaron McFadden and Hannah Wandling and will cover the basics, such as tuning the instrument, how to read tablature, open chords, understanding time and tempo, and how to play with others. There will be a set of songs for everyone to play and sing together, followed by a Student Feature Showcase, introducing new musical talents to the community. You don't have to own a ukulele to participate...they will have instruments to borrow for the workshop. This will take place the last Thursday of the month through September.


 

What To Eat At The Market this Week

Heathens Bakery will be selling charcuterie boxes, a caprese sandwich, and a salami and Swiss sandwich with roasted red pepper on their famous garlic, oregano, and rosemary focaccia bread this week at the farmers market along with trail mix and delicious desserts. Be sure to grab your charcuterie boxes and sandwiches early, before they're all gone. Prices start at $5.


Dad's Best Dogs is debuting at the market this week. With names from the Spicy Tijuana to the Puget Sound Signature to the Twisted Reuban, these dogs are made using 1/4lb. beef or 1/4lb. polish sausage on locally sourced buns. Looks like there's something for everyone...come out and try a delicious dog from Dad's. Prices start at $8.
