With the rise in popularity of fresh and organic foods, it is no surprise that Lakewood is jumping on the band wagon and starting up its own Farmer’s Market for the first time ever this summer. The market will host arts and crafts and feature live entertainment in addition to local produce.
Starting July 10th, the Farmer’s Market will go from 11am to 3pm each Tuesday at the City Hall Plaza at 6000 Main Street SW in Lakewood, WA. Parks, recreation and community service director of the City of Lakewood, Mary Dodsworth says that the market is expected to have around 30 vendors, but there is still plenty of room for anyone looking to sign-up. “We have a list confirmed, but we need additional participants.” Vendors and entertainers can find applications here .
Lakewood’s Farmer’s Market came about as a collaboration between the City of Lakewood and a community leadership team to foster civic involvement. It creates a space for residents of the area to socialize and give back to their community, as well as to socialize and access the local produce of the area.
