Annual Membership Meeting Set for June 19

Greetings to all who support the Enumclaw Plateau Farmers’ Market. We have all experienced some challenging times recently and our team with the market is no different. We would like to inform everyone that we will be holding our annual membership meeting virtually on Friday, June 19, 2020 at 7:00pm. All are invited to attend and encouraged to get involved by becoming a board member and/or officer as well as a community member. Please e-mail board@enumclawplateaufarmersmarket.org and we will get you the link to the annual meeting via Zoom.

May Message from the Board

Only 30 days to go! Are you excited to see what the market will look like this year?

We hope you are well. Enumclaw Plateau Farmers’ Market is scheduled to begin in June and run through September.

Our permits have been submitted to the City of Enumclaw and Public Health–Seattle & King County, including our COVID-19 Safety Plan and maps.

The market layout this year will have a different look, with a single row of vendors down the center of the street. The side closest to Tractor Supply will be a drive-through lane for only customers who have pre-ordered. The side closest to the Enumclaw Library will be a walk-through market, with the north end as the entrance and south end (Griffin Ave.) as the exit. All traffic, both drive-through and foot traffic will be one direction. Please see the following for more specific information:

Some basic items to keep in mind for starting the 2020 season:

  • A temporary hand-washing station, paper towels and sanitizers will be required in every vendor booth.
  • Sampling of products will not be allowed.
  • Vendors will only be selling items that are considered part of an essential business as defined by Governor Inslee’s order. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
  • Entertainment and other non-essential services are excluded at this time. We will bring these back when the restrictions are lifted.

All of the above is subject to change potentially week-to-week.

Look for our vendor links to be posted soon for placing pre-orders. We will be liking/commenting/sharing about them when possible.

The health and safety of our customers, vendors and volunteers are our top priority.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this rapidly evolving environment. 

We look forward to seeing you at the market this summer. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

Your Enumclaw Plateau Farmers’ Market Board of Directors:

President Lisa Smith
Secretary Lance Smith
Joyce Behrendt
Wendy Burdette
Market Manager Liz Clark

L & B Mini Ranch featured on KING5News

Alison Morrow returned to Enumclaw to do a feature story on young Owen Suhoversnik and his farming aspirations. Owen got to assist in the pig birthing process his first time at our President Lisa Smith’s L & B Mini Ranch. Lisa’s husband Burt did a great job highlighting the how many plateau area farmers are inspiring and supporting our youth to consider farming.

She also posted some great Facebook Live segments.

Alison was recently spotted shopping at the market on July 25 as well.
