Winter Update (Lynden Farmers Market)

Plans are beginning to take place for next season.

We plan on producing food from several location again next season and again hosting the Lynden Farmers Market.

We are currently in the planning stages of changing the location and day of the market from last year. If plans go through - it will be at the Centennial Park lot on the corner of 4th and Front St downtown (next to the public restrooms) and take place on Thursday afternoons (2-6ish). This is an effort in increase walk-though customer traffic and to take advantage of the busier weekday times downtown.

We are just beginning to recruit vendors for next year - please be in touch if you are interested in being a vendor. Contact Dave Timmer (dave.timmer@arocha.org).

As it is, we are putting together a proposal for the city to make sure they are OK with the use of the Centennial Park lot. The Chamber of Commerce is excited about the possibilities there. Its' true that this could be a great location - the new art center, directly downtown, and in the civic corridor. We will keep you informed as the plans move forward.
