Two weeks to go until Maple Valley Farmers Market season launches

The Maple Valley Farmers Market Board is busily preparing for its sixth season, which begins on Saturday, June 21, at 9 a.m. at Rock Creek Elementary School.

There are 21 farmers, ranchers and processors already signed up, with a high number of returning vendors. In addition, returning food vendors include three customer favorites - George's Bakery, The Cupcakery, and EJ's Catering.

The farmers market continues to recruit crafters and artisans for one or more weeks of the 17-week season. It will also again offer two booth spaces per market season to nonprofit and other local greater Maple Valley area community groups, subject to availability and approval by the market manager.

Those interested in learning more about these opportunities should contact Victoria Laise Jonas at info@maplevalleyfarmersmarket.org.

Volunteers willing to commit as little as 90 minutes or as much as a weekly stint should visit www.maplevalleyfarmersmarket.org/getinvolved.html to see what is available. Sponsorships, both small and large, are also still welcome. Information can be found at www.maplevalleyfarmersmarket.org/beasponsor.html. And, slots for entertainers and buskers are also still available. Those interested should email info@maplevalleyfarmersmarket.org.

The winner of the 2014 poster-creating contest is Tahoma High student Joanne Kunze. Businesses interested in obtaining a poster should contactinfo@maplevalleyfarmersmarket.org for delivery.
