The After Hours Farmers Market will take place 4-7 p.m. every Thursday from Sept. 1-Sept. 29, 2016, at Depot Market Square in downtown Bellingham. The first After Hours Market also marks the beginning of Eat Local Month, of a month long celebration in September highlighting local foods, farms, and fishers. In the height of harvest season, Eat Local Month is a reminder to celebrate the bounty in our backyard, and support the folks who grow, raise and prepare our food by buying locally. Come to participate and learn more! Over 20 local farmers and food vendors will provide fresh produce, meat, dairy, baked goods and more to take home for dinner or to enjoy on-site. There will be live music each evening for shoppers who would like to linger and relax after a long day at work.
