Tuesday Farmers Market Struggling

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The popular Yakima Farmers Market is entering its last two months of operation.

Besides the usual Sunday market, Yakima added a new Tuesday Farmers Market this year. While the weekend market has continued to be successful, Tuesday has not had the same amount of visitors and vendors. Market Operator Don Eastridge says some changes might come to the weekday Farmers Market next year.

"Sunday's have been great. Tuesdays not so great," Don said. "It's the first year, lot of public doesn't know we're there and some vendors quit early on account of the heat so it's a very small market at this point. We'll figure out what we're going to do for next year later."

The Sunday and Tuesday Yakima Farmers Markets run through October.
