Bellingham Farmers Market returns to its weekly schedules, and there’s the monthly Art Walk and a free mushrooming class.
To market, to market
Bellingham Farmers Market opens its regular season with the mayor’s ceremonial cabbage toss at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 2. The market runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays through Christmas at Depot Market Square, corner of Railroad Avenue and East Maple Street. These early weeks, it runs light on produce — but you’re sure to find some kale or cut flowers. Info: bellinghamfarmers.org, 360-647-2060.
