Press Release courtesy of Uptown Gig Harbor
Gig Harbor, Wash
. March 15, 2011 Opening April 2nd, (8:30am-2pm) the 2011 Gig Harbor Farmers Market will be located at UPTOWN (4701Point Fosdick Drive, Gig Harbor).  Dale Schultz, the director of the Gig Harbor Farmers Market says “This should be a win/win for everyone!  This location will allow easy loan/unload areas as well as customer parking during Uptown’s off peak hours of operation.  The additional space will also allow us to grow to approximately 75 vendors.”

 

The Farmers Market also has events such as weekly entertainment and free guitar, uke, banjo and mandolin lessons.  The last Saturday of each month the Farmer Market will also host a “Cruise-In for Hot Rods” during the market.

 

This year a new vendor will join the market family, Palms Ranch on Ray Nash Drive who will be selling locally grown grass fed beef.

 

The Gig Harbor Farmers Market opens on Saturday April 2nd and runs each Saturday from 8:30am – 2pm through September 24th.  As always, the final day of the market in September will be the Gig Harbor Chowder Cook Off!
