Enumclaw Plateau Farmer’s Market again doubles in size for its sixth year

It’s shaping up to be another record-breaking year.

Twenty-three days and counting until the sixth annual Enumclaw Plateau Farmer’s Market is back on First Street, every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m., June through September.

Last year was a banger — not only did the Market double the number of vendors last year over the 2022 market, but all records were broken, from the number of shoppers to gross sales and food access program participants.

And it’s looking like this year could be even better, at least based on the new number of approved vendors.

According to the Market’s website, the number of vendors expected at the 2024 market has once again doubled to 59 vendors, though not every vendor will be setting up every week (and a couple are Market-related).

Many vendors from last year or other previous years are returning, and many more are new. The list is long, and the number of approved vendors can be found at enumclawplateaufarmersmarket.org/vendors/ (plus, the Market’s website will have a weekly update on which vendors will set up every week), but some highlights include:

• Contrivance Wine & Mead Co. and Reeds Sweet Wines with their own takes on alcoholic beverages;

• Enumclaw Farm, Ode to Joy Farm, Manor Farms, Found Again Fungi, and Fernandez Farms with their fresh greens, summer fruits and veggies, and mushrooms

• Beauvine Natural and its local meats;

• Gramma Berta’s Pantry with its chutneys and jams;

• Horse ‘n’ Round Studio, which brings its natural wood goods;

• Fantello Farmstead Creamery and its famous cheeses;

• Hayton Farms Berries and their raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries;

• Wicked Mama’s Soaps and Sundries with their personal hygiene products.

• Numerous crafters and artists like P-U-M Creations (crafted stone), Koiativity (a Spokane-based artist), IRO Earth Trend (acrylic canvas and prints), Darren Chromey Photography (nature and architecture photography), and Lynn’s Uniquely You Destinations (jewelry and wall decor);

• Waterhole-Orantes Originals, which brings a hands-on visual arts projects that help teach important animal facts;

Some farmer’s markets could be less than exciting for the littles, but the Enumclaw Plateau Farmer’s Market has designed the Kids Power of Produce (PoP) Club to get children ages 2 to 18 excited for local food.

Families that sign up for the program receive two $2 tokens at the Market’s booths to spend on fresh greens, fruits, and vegetables specifically. You can sign up online at the Market’s website.

The PoP Club is sponsored by Mutual of Enumclaw, community sponsors, and individual donors, and according to the Market, helps put thousands of dollars back into the pockets of local farmers.

Many food vendors participate in the Woman, Infants, and Children (WIC) Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program which allows lower-income participants to spend hundreds of dollars each season on fresh food.
