GRANDVIEW - As a handcrafter with lots of wares to sell, Linda Clark thought why not test the waters to see if Grandview could support a Craft Fair / Farmers Market. So Clark and her daughter Rene Martinez of Prosser are proposing to open a market for area produce growers and crafters.
"It's been a long time since the community has had a farmers market," Clark said.
The women plan to open a combination craft fair/farmers market on Wednesday, May 15, in the 201 Birch St. parking lot, near the Grandview Presbyterian Church. If there is enough interest, the market will continue to be open each Wednesday through the growing season.
"Right now we are seeking all interested vendors," Clark said.
"We hope to attract farmers with fresh produce, such as asparagus, and other fruits and vegetables as they become available," she added.
Additionally, all handcrafts, jewelry makers and antique dealers, candle makers or quilters are welcome.
She said commercial vendors, such as Tupperware or Scensty for example, are also welcome.
All vendors are encouraged to contact Clark at 509-391-5235. Cost for the 10'x10' spaces will be $10 per space. Initially the hours will be 8 a.m. until noon.
