Skagit Valley Saturday Market no more

June 27, 2011

It is with sadness I announce the end of the Skagit Valley Saturday Market. Two thirds of the starting vendors left the market. We were left with six on Saturday — not enough to continue — so we voted to close the market.

I’m not sure why it didn’t take off. The fact is we just weren’t seeing enough traffic. Was it the economy? People without much expendable income? Was it the location? Was it we didn’t have any farmers with fresh produce joining our ranks? In my mind, the economy was the biggest factor.

The most difficult part for me is saying goodbye to many fellow vendors who have become my Saturday family — Kate of Funky Country Clothing, Bev of Blue Collar Dog Treats, Janet of UKDK WA, Laura of Islander Herbs, Anne at Bush’s Nursery, Tammi of Tammi Layne Designs, Petra and her sweet children of Liliana Beauty Care, Dan and Gail Ferris of Ferris Wheel Creations, and many more. I hope to see you all on down the line. Hugs.
