The Chelan Evening Farmers Market is moving forward full steam.
We have formed a board, held our first board meeting written and approved market rules, formed a marketing committee, gotten a post office box, a bank account--not to mention a generous sponsorship from North Cascades National Bank.
Date, Times, Locale are set: Thursday Evenings, 4-7 pm, from June 30 through September 29, in Emerson street next to Riverwalk Park.
We are now ready to take applications from vendors and to collect supporting memberships from community members!
Here's what you can do next!
Become a member! Membership is required of vendors and open to supporting community members. Membership costs $25/year. Your membership supports the market by helping pay for such things as signage, entertainment, supplies, and advertising. A discussion of the full breadth of membership perks is on the agenda for the next meeting. Membership dues can be sent to:
Lake Chelan Evening Farmer's Market
PO Box 594
Chelan, WA 98816
Become a vendor! We are now accepting applications from farmers, food processors, crafters, food concessionaires, and entertainers. The Rules & Guidelins and the Vendor Application are attached. We already have three committed vendors that have paid their membership dues and vendor fees for the entire season. Stall space will be given out on a first come first serve basis, so don't delay!
Volunteer! We are still taking nominations for a market manager, and also nominations for our craft jury committee. We also welcome volunteers in other areas. If you have something you'd like to help with, let us know!
Come to a Board Meeting! If you want to know what's going on, or give input, our next meeting is scheduled for April 21 at 7:30 am at the Riverwalk Inn Hotel. Please RSVP, let us know if you'd like breakfast, and let us know if you'd like anything added to the agenda. Minutes from the last meeting are attached.
