Fans of the Bellingham Farmers Market will be able to visit on Thursday evenings next month.

Responding to customer requests, an after-hours farmers market will take place 4-7 p.m. every Thursday in September at the Depot Market Square in downtown Bellingham.

This will be in addition to the market events on Saturdays at the Depot Market Square and on Wednesdays in Fairhaven.

“After getting feedback from our farmers, we concluded that a midweek, evening market would provide the additional market shopping day customers want and accommodate the time our farmers need for field work,” said Caprice Teske, marketing director.

The market’s board and vendors will seek customer comments and assess the Thursday event at season’s end to determine whether the after-hours market will continue beyond September.
