Yakima Farmer's Market Opens With Some New Features

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. -- The Yakima farmer's market is back!

Hundreds of people came downtown for the 16th annual opening day of the farmer's market. There are some new additions this year, like an espresso stand and, coming soon, wine tasting. Organizers say there were a record amount of booths for opening day Sunday.

"It feels great," Don Eastridge, manager of the farmer's market said. "It's a beautiful sunny day with a little breeze but that's all right. We're ready for a new year."

The farmer's market during peak season can bring crowds as large as six thousand people to downtown Yakima. Organizers are still debating whether to keep the Tuesday market or move it to Thursday afternoons.
