Usher in summer by perusing the weekly Farmer’s Market located at 19 South 3rd. For 19 years, the market has operated from Mother’s Day weekend through the end of October. Sprawling through the streets in front of the Historic Capitol Theater, the market extends as far south as necessary. Open from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sundays, come early for an 8:30 breakfast that is just $5 (available to vendors and the public).

After filling up on hearty sausage, eggs, bacon, and pancakes, discover what’s new this 2018 season. Truly farm-fresh produce, meats, and more are available from local growers. Sample seasonal fruits and berries, enjoy wine tastings from local vineyards, and discover a variety of arts and crafts that capture the essence of Yakima Valley.
