The City of Mill Creek will again sponsor summer farmers markets in 2019, but they will be held on Tuesdays rather than on Fridays.
The Mill Creek Farmers Markets will also be open a bit later to accommodate people with jobs, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Last year the hours were from noon to 5:00 pm.
The first Mill Creek Farmers Market this year will be held on June 18th and will again be located in the Mill Creek City Hall North parking lot.
Since there are no public rest rooms in the Mill Creek Town Center or adjoining shopping centers, the location also allows farmer’s market visitors to use the public rest rooms at City Hall North.
According to Mill Creek Farmers Market Manager Sarah Dylan Jensen, “We heard extensive feedback from our customers last season that an evening market would be far more convenient to our community.”
She went on to say, “With many vendors and farmers already committed to large-scale weekend markets and events, we felt that Tuesday would be an ideal day for all involved.”
Jensen said she plans to work with many of the same vendors from last season and hopes the day and time shift will attract more farm-fresh goods.
