Kitsap Farmers Markets Opening Weekend

Spring is finally here! Now is the time for planting seeds. If digging in the dirt isn't your thing, what about supporting our local economy? Local farmers grow amazing food in our neck of the woods. You can meet many of them at farmer's markets around the county, almost every day of the week!  Two markets open this weekend, with others to follow shortly after.

Below is a list of local markets with their dates and times courtesy of their websites.

Gardening with Kids

If the daffodils, cherry blossoms, and tulips sprouting everywhere didn’t convince you, then last weeks’ beautiful warm weather must have shown that spring is officially here. And what’s a better way to spend spring outside than gardening? I may only have a balcony with container planters instead of a yard with a garden, but I’m still itching to plant tomatoes, carrots, and green beans. While it may still be a bit early for planting vegetables, it’s not too early to start preparing your garden—and your little gardener—for what’s to come.
