Kids Market Bucks Club This Week!

Kids ages 3-12 are welcome to join us on Thursday, August 4th to learn about nutrition with Kitsap Public Health District! Kids who participate in the activity that day will earn $4 to spend on fresh fruits and veggies at the market!

Thank youUnited Way of Kitsap County for making this program possible!


Parking

Please be a good neighbor and only park in designated car parking areas. There have been complaints that market-goers have been parking outside the 5 designated parking spots in the boating area. Those parked illegally will get a ticket. In case you weren't aware, Kitsap Community Resources has generously offered their parking lot after 4:30PM, they're only a block away! Thank you for your cooperation!


Free COVID Test Kits and Masks

Kitsap Public Health is providing free at-home test kits and high-quality masks to individuals in Kitsap County that are most impacted by COVID-19 or who may have barriers to accessing these supplies through other avenues. If you're in need of these supplies, please stop by the Info Booth.


Market Tokens Are Money!

Do you have any market tokens lying around? Maybe in your glove box, your junk drawer, or at the bottom of your purse? Dig them out and bring them on Thursday!


Farmers Market Nutrition Program

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides nutrition to income eligible seniors via checks to be used at approved farmers markets. We are excited to announce that 2022 eligible applicants may elect to receive $80 in checks! Please remember that this program is first come, first served until all the checks have been distributed and applications must be mailed in. Applications are available at the Info Booth. If you're unable to come to the market to pick up an application, click here to print one out or to find a list of other places to get one.


Help Support the Market

Make sure to stop by the Information Booth on Thursday to buy your limited-edition market merch printed by Fingers Duke! Our totes are sold out and inventory of shirts and tanks are getting low! 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! Shirts and tanks are $20 and all proceeds support running the market.


Kitsap Harvest Grow-A-Row

Kitsap Harvest gleans produce from around Kitsap County and distributes it directly to community members facing hunger and food insecurity with the help of its volunteers. They are combating hunger and food waste by picking fruit trees, collecting produce donations from home gardeners and community gardens and delivering the food directly to partnering organizations including senior centers, recovery centers and homeless youth and veteran services.

If you have produce you'd like to donate there are donation stations at Bremerton Community Farmers Market, Port Orchard Farmers Market and Kitsap Community Food Co-op.

If you would like to know how you can get involved, sign up as a volunteer on their website! You will be notified of different opportunities including sorting food for delivery, helping at community gardens, delivering food to partnering organizations and more! Sign up for their newsletter and stay up to date on all things Kitsap Harvest! Email info@kitsapharvest.org for questions.
