Strong communities work together through times of adversity!
North Bend Farmers Market at Si View Park was approved to operate as an essential service in the midst of a pandemic. While our operations looked quite different this year, with limited number of vendors, restricted shopper access and new safety procedures, the market provided a sense of normalcy in times of uncertainty. The staff navigated new guidelines to create the safest possible environment for shoppers and vendors alike. The community support was extraordinary with shoppers lining up to enter the market space and shop from as many vendors as possible. The vendors developed new ways of serving customers and came prepared, rain or shine. Together we accomplished what seemed near impossible in March: a series of community events that brought together neighbors and vendors, building community, supporting the local economy and promoting healthy living. Thank you for your support, we are proud to be such an integral part of the community and look forward to your participation and support in 2021!
For fifteen years now, the North Bend Farmers Market has been hosted at the scenic Si View Park framed by a spectacular view of Mount Si. Visitors appreciate this unique setting while shopping for fresh produce, specialty products, gorgeous flowers, tasty treats and handmade gifts. Families with picnic blankets, strollers and leashed pets are a familiar sight at the market and a perfect fit for the relaxed atmosphere with live music and plenty of activities for kids to do.
The North Bend Farmers Market isnít just about selling, it is also about gathering and building community. A number of local non-profit organizations participate with messaging on volunteer opportunities and ways for community to get involved and support their locally focused missions. Non-profits have included environmental causes, church groups, event organizers, food security programs and more.
Live music is the perfect accompaniment to a market atmosphere. The picnic shelter adjacent to the playground is used for the concerts, which is an ideal location for both the musicians and the audience. A variety of genres is selected to reach a diverse audience throughout the season.
