Tuesday Farmer's Market Success So Far

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.--  This week marks one month since the Tuesday evening farmer's market started in Yakima.

The city started the new Tuesday market to bring more people to the downtown area.

This is an extension of the larger Sunday farmer's market that is now a staple to Sundays in Yakima during the summer.

One organizer said if they see success, the new Tuesday market will hopefully be added as a regular event in Yakima every summer.

"If it continues with a pretty good crowd and stuff like that.  So we have to get the crowds out there on Tuesday if they want us to keep it on Tuesday night," said vendor and market organizer, Peggy Ambrose.

So far the market has seen OK numbers, but other events have taken attention away from it.

The fact it is on a weeknight with less vendors, many people decide to go to the bigger one on the weekend.

Organizers said there are six weeks left for the Tuesday evening farmers market in Yakima.
