farmer's Market music 2018
The Vashon Island Growers Association offers locally grown produce at the Saturday Market, in the heart of Vashon’s town. At the Saturday Market, you'll find about 30 to 50 vendors of food and arts and crafts, along with live music. At the market, you can buy Island grown organic produce, meats, even wines, bread and cheese…and special gifts for your loved ones.
Vashon Events is happy to be a part of bringing music to the Vashon Saturday Farmers Market. The music is almost always from 11am until 1pm, in the northwest corner of the Village Green. We'd like to thank Nan Wilson at Manage Ad Music for generously sponsoring the music again this year!
