The Bellingham Farmers Market is seeking new vendors for the 2014 season.

Farmers, producers, in Whatcom and Skagit counties are encouraged to apply.

Application forms for the main season Saturday market and Wednesday market are now available. The Saturday market runs from April 5 through Dec. 20, and the Wednesday market from June 4 through Sept. 24.

"New vendors enable us to expand the Market's product mix and selection range, and are essential in helping us maintain an interesting, sustainable market for our community," said Caprice Teske, marketing director of the market, in a news release.

This year the focus is on attracting vendors offering specialty crops and highlighting products made using locally grown or sourced items, according to the news release. For vendor information and applications, click on the "How to Vend" button on the Market's homepage at this (link) 

Applications are due by Friday, Jan. 31. All craft, value-added, and food products will be reviewed by the market's Product Review Panel, made up of current vendors and community members, to ensure that the market mix has consistent quality and appropriateness.

The Saturday Market is at the Depot Market Square on Railroad Avenue.  In addition, a Wednesday Market is held in Fairhaven, on the Village Green behind Village Booksr. For more information, call 360-647-2060.
