Kennewick Farmer’s Market runs ‘Swag Bag’ promotion

The Kennewick Farmer's Market is up and running for the season!

KENNEWICK, Wash. — Summer is almost here, which means local farmer’s markets are popping up. On Thursday, June 3rd, Historic Downtown Kennewick started their Farmer’s Market.

Located at the plaza on Benton St and Kennewick Ave, shoppers can expect to see vendors of all kinds. From local produce and foods to crafts, jewelry, and textiles.

Executive Director of Historic Downtown Kennewick, Stephanie Button, gave us a look at what to expect in future markets.

“Our Farmer’s Market is going to grow throughout the entire season,” Button said. “Right now we’re kind of in an interesting in-between time for some of our producers. So berries are just starting to come in, asparagus has finished, so each week we’ll start to see more farmers, more produce becoming available.”

Additionally, Button said some vendors are there every week, while others come and go depending on the week. Each week will be a different experience.

The Kennewick Farmer’s Market is unique because of its timeframe. You can go to the market from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays from June to October. It’s considered a worker-friendly market; you can come straight from work.

New to the market this year is the Swag Bag. When you come to the market, visit the Information Booth, and grab a Swag Bag card. After spending $5 at five different vendors, take the card back to the Information Booth and redeem it for a free, limited edition Kennewick Farmer’s Market tote. There is no cost to get the Swag Bag Cards, and the promotion will run as supplies last.

You can stay up to date with the Kennewick Farmer’s Market and Historical Downtown Kennewick events by following Downtown Kennewick Farmer’s Market or Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership on Facebook.
