The Ellensburg Farmers Market is an event that brings the community together. As the leaves start to turn shades of orange, red and yellow, the weather changes as well. October is the last month to visit the farmers’ market this year and soak up the sun.

The farmers’ market occurs every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Many community members gather together to support the small businesses. There are churros, tamales, bagels, French bread, flowers and jam at the farmers’ market. Fresh pastries, vegetables and fruit can also be found. As people stroll through the farmers’ market, they can enjoy live music being played.

The Berry Farm and Bakery sells locally grown blueberries and raspberries. They have a variety of jam flavors made from berries as well. Naomi Lule, the daughter of the owner, said they have been coming to the farmers’ market for five years.

“I like that it brings people out from the community,” Lule said. “It is something that is fun for people to come to. We enjoy having the same customers come back week after week and enjoy our fresh produce.” 

The Berry Farm and Bakery is located in Yakima. Sam Weaver, the owner, started selling berries 10 years ago and pastries three years ago. The pastries include brownies, cookies, macaroons and more. He also sells berry drinks. 

Abbi Goetz and her boyfriend Shane Johnson have been coming to the Ellensburg Farmers Market since it started in May. The best part about the farmers’ market is the macaroons, said Goetz. Johnson on the other hand, said he enjoys the local produce. His favorites are the fruits, carrots and garlic at the farmers’ market.
